In Silence with God,
by Benedict Baur, OSB, Archabbot of Beuron,
Translated from the fourth German edition by Elisabethe Corathier-Noonan,
Scepter Publishers, 1997.
In 220 pages, I found in this little book, most readable, a vademecum for the spiritual life no matter what your personal calling. Because the chapters average about 10 pages apiece, it recommends itself also for spiritual reading.
Chapter 22, the last chapter, entitled "On the Heights", spoke to me particularly in terms of a description of the contemplative lifestyle as practiced by a saint. His account of the fruits of a life of love is particularly meritorious and inspired.
Happy reading, I hope!
