A great writing for a genuine spiritual growth

Where does The Fulfillment of All Desire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best writings and guides for my spiritual growth.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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."

Any additional comments?

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.

Enlightening and Challenging

Having heard Ralph Martin's seminars, it took a while to get used to the narrator. However once I got rhythm of his speech I really enjoyed it and found the books content enlightening and challenging.

wow!

(Audible review). Outstanding! Suddenly my 90-min commute wasn't long enough! I knew early in the book that this was going to be special. I hung on to every word! Will be a guiding companion on my journey.

Had to take it in twice in a row.

I tried reading St. John of the Cross once and found that I was neither intellectually or spiritually prepared for his Ascent or Dark Night. After listening to St. Terese's Story of a Soul and Come Be My Light from the writings of Blessed Mother Teresa (both through audible.com), I found this book which explained simply and beautifully the spiritual journey to God based on the writings of these and other Saints. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has recognized in himself or herself even the slightest desire for God. (The four star performance was only because the narrator sometimes mixes pronouns or reads incorrectly based on a comparison with the eBook version.)
