Summary

"Grant us such grace that we may work Your will And speak Your words, and walk before Your face Profound and calm like waters deep and still, Grant us such grace." --Christina Rossetti In a book overflowing with grace, Lucinda Vardey--who collaborated with Mother Teresa to create her international bestseller A Simple Path--gathers an incandescent, unprecedented selection of nearly a thousand prayers and thoughts about them, set down through the ages by women of many faiths. St. Teresa of Ávila, Simone Weil, Emily Dickinson, Annie Dillard, Julian of Norwich, Sun Bu-er, Marianne Williamson, Marion Woodman, and hundreds of others are among the saints, spiritual teachers, poets, healers, and anonymous spiritual women whose passionate words generate a dazzling arc of love between women and their most profound beliefs. In prayers of praise and thanksgiving; calls for mercy and courage in the face of death; lives of surrender and holy love; in celebrations of the soul's unfolding, readers will find their burdens lightened, their paths illuminated, and their hearts inspired. This collection is unparalleled in its illustration of the unity of women's faith. Within these pages, there is spiritual sustenance to last a lifetime.
