Format: Paperback
This gem of a book is a collection of fourteen reflections by Mother Raphaela on the Christian life. I picked up this book by chance, not intending to read it (we have supported and even visited the monastery of which she is abbess, but alas I've not read her work before). It's said that God sends you the book you need at the moment, and so it was for me. All her essays are valuable for her practical advice and deep insights, but I was particularly struck by her discussions of how we are to respect boundaries and yet act as bridges. Mother Raphaela pulls no punches and engages with some of the biggest challenges facing us, yet she keeps a light hand even on weighty matters. Highly recommended for spiritual reading during Lent, Advent, or any time.

Format: Paperback
I saw this book and something about it spoke to me, so I bought it and when it arrived began to read it. For lack of a better description, this small book is written by someone who has phenomenal insight into spiritual growth in Christ. It is evident that the author has spent her life in pursuit (and perhaps achievement) of what it means to be one with Christ. All I can say is that for anyone seriously committed to a spiritual path, this work is a "must read." Although clearly from a Catholic background, her insight and means of expressing that insight would be of benefit for any spiritual adherent of any denomination, sect or religion. Yes, her writings are that good! They stem not from one who practices "armchair religion," but one who has lived her whole life "in the trenches," pragmatically developing, serving and experimentally living what it means to live like Christ in relation to themselves and their fellow man without the prejudice or boundaries that so many in Christendom unfortunately erect as barriers to their interaction with fellow travelers on the spiritual path. However, do not take this work to be from someone who is not extremely well-educated and an advanced thinker in her own right - she is, but she has a way of blending intelligence with faith in her writings that in my experience is unique amongst most modern spiritual authors - simple and direct, yet at times provocative - perhaps especially to those in her own order. I recommend this work beyond anything I have read recently and would encourage all who read this to buy it! You could pay hundreds for a book without finding the insight contained in this one small volume.
