The Fulfillment of All Desire

I saw an interview this weekend on EWTN with Ralph Martin, cofounder of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. He has published a new book called The Fulfillment of All Desire that takes the teachings of the great spiritual masters such as St. John of the Cross and St. Francis de Sales and applies them to the life of contemporary lay Catholics, going from baptism to the Beatific Vision, passing through the purgative, illuminative and unitive ways. I haven't read it yet, but I've ordered it ILL from our library and am looking forward to seeing. I was impressed by the interview.

Robert --

Thanks for the kind words, about both of our lists.

On the basis of some pretty interesting reader comments, I think we decided that Vehige found Kristin Lavransdatter rough going because of a bad translation. Either that, or he was trying to read it in Norwegian.

Oops. That last comment was intended for the next post down -- "Another List..."
