Living the Mystery of Merciful Love: 30 Days with Thérèse of Lisieux is the latest in the Navigating the Interior Life series, which brings the wisdom of the saints into the hands of today’s readers. In this presentation of intimate letters from St. Thérèse of Lisieux to her sisters and close friends, authors Anthony Lilles and Dan Burke lay out the Little Flower’s program for complete self-offering to God through her Oblation to Merciful Love.

A humble prayer calls down fire from above, and as we learn to live a life rooted in prayer, this heavenly fire grows into a profound awareness of the presence of God. This is the deepest purpose of prayer, and making this journey is essential for reaching the heights of holiness for which we were made.

In Fire From Above, Dr. Anthony Lilles shows you how to put your whole life in conversation with the Risen Lord within the Catholic tradition of spirituality. The wisdom of great saints and mystics will help you discover how to surrender your pride and appeal to God with humble trust, and how prayer addresses your deepest human needs.

Published by Discerning Hearts, Hidden Mountain Secret Garden provides an accessible synthesis of the spiritual doctrine of some of the great saints and mystics throughout Christian history.   Drawn from material used in lectures to seminarians and graduate students, this theological contemplation on prayer is based in the mystical tradition of the Catholic Church, a tradition that emphasizes mental or contemplative prayer in the life of grace.  From struggles with doubt and irrationality, through all kinds of dark nights and difficult hardships, up hidden heights and down into secret depths, to the truth of sacred doctrine and the power of forgiveness--this beautiful journey blazed by the Risen Lord is waiting for each of us.
