In this occasional series of posts, I recommend resources for you and your family in 100 words or less. More detailed reviews may come later.
By Fr. Thomas Dubay. Thorough, understandable explanation of Carmelite spirituality. Contains short biographies of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. Helps you discern where you are in Teresa’s Mansions. What to do at each stage to grow more. Defines contemplation and detachment. Challenges everyone to become a contemplative. Distinguishes true mysticism from locutions and visions. Deals with difficulties in prayer, friendship, and spiritual direction. Destined to be a classic.
One “criticism:” Deep and long. Don’t expect to be able to read it in 5-minute spurts.
