Maggie Ross explores classic spiritual texts and Scripture texts to underscore that revelation in the beholding of God is the crucial hermeneutical path. Most alluring are the brief Chapter Four on "Liturgical Silence" and Chapter Five, which provides "A Rite for Contemplative Eucharist." Ross criticizes the verbosity and trendiness of much contemporary liturgy, which fails to deliver worshippers into that for which the soul most longs, deep silence. I was fascinated by the author's description of the rubrics, structure, and texts for the Contemplative Eucharist, an approach which begs for application and to be tested in experience.
Whereas the majority of our lives are consumed in self-consciousness and while even spiritual practices fostering "mindfulness" can only take us to the brink, there yet lies an apprehension more profound, more in tune with the divine image within us, what Ross names "deep mind." This book invites the reader to cross the threshold to behold.
