Notes: "What can your spiritual ancestors teach you about holy living today? Although they led ascetic lives centuries ago, St. Benedict, the Desert Fahters and Mothers, and other early Christian saints have much to teach everyone in the twenty-first century. Now you can join the modern mystic and monk, Thomas Merton, in encountering these great contemplatives and their teachings. With Merton as your guide, you'll travel back through centuries of our spiritual history to meet these men and women to whom God spoke."--Container. Introduction by Fr.
