Thoughtful, inspiring, often humorous, intensely spiritual - this collection of writings brings together for the first time the most searching explorations of an extraordinary other world. It reveals the mystique of lives given totally to God, from the first stirrings of vocation and the experiences of arduous novitiates, to the solemn professions and works of prayer, education, and mercy.
