Sparkling in the ancient texts of the Fathers of the Church ’the bishop, monks and theologians who wrote during the first formative six christian centuries’ is a fountain of wisdom overflowing with spiritual nourishment for the world today. By presenting a passage for meditation each day through the year, the volume offers an introduction both to the Fathers and to monastic lectio. It speaks not only to the individual seekers but also to those who guide others along the paths of the spirit.
