  • For thirty years Catholic Christians have been turning and returning to this remarkable spiritual classic in which a Trappist monk speaks clearly and perceptively to the world of the priest, religious or lay person still in the world. It has been called a modern Introduction to the Devout Life.
  • Eugene Boylan

    Dom Eugene Boylan, O.C.S.O., was an Irish-born Trappist monk and writer who was born in 1904 and died in 1964. Ordained a priest in 1937, he began writing on spiritual topics, and in the 1940s he published two books, This Tremendous Lover and Difficulties in Mental Prayer, which became international bestsellers and were translated into many languages. In the late 1950s he undertook an extensive lecture tour of the United States ("This is the best retreat we ever had at Gethsemani," commented Thomas Merton after Boylan's visit there), and in 1962 he was elected the fourth abbot of Mount St. Joseph Abbey in Roscrea, Ireland. Two years later he died in an automobile accident.
