A great writing for a genuine spiritual growth
One of the best writings and guides for my spiritual growth.
The author brings together spiritual experiences of the greatest Doctors of Catholic Church who present me the Wisdom they have gained from God on their roads of finding Living God in their lives: St Therese of Lisieux, St John of the Cross, St Bernard, St Therese of Avila, St Catherine, St Francis.
Difficult to chose a single thing - I was amazed by mere fact of bringing the spiritual experiences of our Saints together in a new way and how they coincide one with another. Sometimes almost identical. If I were to choose a single one thing it would be a warning given by St Teresa of Avila to those who seek seriously spiritual maturity: (paraphrased): "I was misled for many years by my spiritual directors who kept calling no-sinful thing at all something which was in reality a venial sin and a venial-sinful thing that was a in reality a mortal sin until a Dominican priest straightened things out and called mortal sin a mortal sin and venial sin a venial thing. Since that moment my spiritual growth took a new growth."
Great thanks to the author who without making of his own "theological and spiritual acrobatics" shows a "proven" way to spiritual maturity by honest study of the Doctors of the Catholic Church.
