Description


Available in English for the first time, this short book is a powerful introduction to the spiritual wisdom of one of the Church's newest saints: Elizabeth of the Trinity.

There was nothing extraordinary in Elizabeth of the Trinity's life. There were no ecstasies. She didn't work miracles. She didn't communicate heavenly messages through visions or words she heard.

Instead, she presented a message to modern man through her own life of fidelity, showing us that the true road to contemplative prayer is not an ascent to grasp God, but a descent into the depths of one's heart.

She teaches us that only by drawing our souls inward can we move toward bold abandonment and achieve immersion in God, thereby connecting our spiritual lives to the eternal praise of the saints in heaven.

In our noisy culture, Elizabeth of the Trinity reminds us of God's power to establish in us a profound and peaceful stillness. She reminds us that that the Trinity is our home, and that God has created us in order to be united to Christ.

In these pages, Sister Giovanna della Croce presents a brief and readable introduction to the teachings of Elizabeth of the Trinity, showing us the truth path to contemplative prayer.

St. John Paul II considered Elizabeth of the Trinity to be one of the most influential mystics in his spiritual life. Now you, too, can begin incorporating in your own spiritual life the mystical wisdom of Elizabeth of the Trinity.

About the Author


Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity was a discalced Carmelite nun who was born in France on July 18, 1880. She is a patron against illness, patron of sick people and of those who have lost their parents. She died at the age of 26 on November 9, 1906, in Dijon, France from Addison's disease, an illness which, at the time, had no known cure. She wrote much correspondence, many personal notes, poems and a diary. But, her most famous writings are her four spiritual treatises: Heaven in Faith, The Greatness of our Vocation, Last Retreat, and Let Yourself Be Loved. Saint John Paul II beatified her in 1984.
