  • Originating from weekly talks given to a contemplative community of monks and nuns, the meditations in this book aim to help the reader live as profoundly as possible, in deepening desire for union with God. Arranged according to the liturgical year, from Advent through to Pentecost, some of the meditations deal with practical issues, some offer guideposts for spiritual discernment, and others are lyrical evocations of the transformative power of the contemplative way. Underlying all is the basic assumption that God has drawn near to each one of us, and that our fulfillment is found in surrendering our lives to that Enfolding Presence and Creative Love.

  • Gregory Fruehwirth

    Fr Gregory Fruehwirth, OJN is a monk of the Order of Julian of Norwich, Wisconsin. For five years he has been serving as the Guardian, or Superior of the Order: before that, he was the groundskeeper. A published poet, he regularly leads retreats and quiet days all over the United States and in the United Kingdom. Like his patron, Julian of Norwich, his ministry is that of awakening in others a sense of God’s love and encouraging an on-going response to that love as the meaning of all true life. He enjoys playing the flute, writing poems, and gardening.
