About this product
- DescriptionThe Carmelite best selling author writes particularly for lay people about contemplation and the life of prayer. The message of To Believe in Jesus is heartening, if disconcerting, for it stands a common assumption on its head. The way to holiness is t through dramatic renunciation, and holiness itself is t just for the 'specialists', clergy and religious. Holiness cant be struggled for and won - it can only be given, and all that is necessary is that we should ask. As soon as we cease to strive for virtue, concentrating attention uselessly on ourselves, and instead recognise our weakness, our need, the way is open to encounter God and the holiness of Jesus which is His gift.
- Author BiographyRuth Burrows is a Carmelite Nun from Quiddenham in Norfolk. She is the author of a number of bestselling books including Guidelines for Mystical Prayer, and Essence of Prayer.
