  1. Margaret Margaret says:

    A book with moments of brilliance and cutting edge at least for me and yet there were mediocre sections in the book It often wavered over to the two star rating especially when discussing church politics or delved into subjects that I am not interested in The redeeming factor is the fact that the author often referred to Thomas Merton my favorite Christian author The first part through to the middle was the best and the latter part lost my interest Still a worthwhile read

  2. James James says:

    There is so much that is excellent in Rolheiser’s writings Deep insight into the human condition and great wisdom on how to keep hold of our life in Christ and in his church At other times he says things that are not uite helpful and probably not uite sound either Overall I consider him to be a helpful at times illuminating if not uite indispensable voice

  3. Maureen Maureen says:

    Generally speaking Fr Rolheiser's theology is too conservative for me On the other hand he makes some valid points about church the most important being that we all need community Do not journey alone We grow through community as well as having our egos humbled and deflated I certainly agree with that

    This was a gift to me from Brother Martin; an 82 year old Hispanic monk and WWII veteran whom I developed a crush on while on retreat at the Trappist Abbey of Our Lady of Guadalupe Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk At the beginning of my three days at the Abbey Brother Martin loaned me a book and a tape; The Spirituality of Imperfection and Br Martin Memories of the War in the Pacific I lent him War and the Soul At the end of the three days we met and traded back and he gave me this book I was so moved by the fire of spirit that transcended any religion dancing in this man's eyes I was very curious about his gift to meForgotten Among the Lilies is the last line of The Dark Night of the Soul the poem by St John of the CrossRolheiser is a progressive Catholic who seeks to deepen and de pathologize our restlessness and longing and to reauaint us with its mystiueWe are fired into life by a madness that comes from our incompleteness We awake to life tense aching erotic full of sex and restlessnessThis dis ease is singularly the most important force within existence It is the force for love and we are fundamentally shaped by our loves and deformed by their distortions

    I finished this book a while ago but somehow forgot to note it here I love this book so much I wrote several long journal entries about all the things it made me ponder and consider and re evaluate Rolheiser is a much needed uiet contemplative voice in a hurried brash world And not contemplative in that kind of staged yoga pants and mat sort of way either He isn't afraid to approach controversy and frightening uestions He makes you look at yourself and your flaws unflinchingly and reach towards the romantic idealistic innocent self you may have betrayed as you became run down and worn out and used up by the world Highly recommended read even if you don't normally read religious type books

  6. Marissa Viszolay Marissa Viszolay says:

    I enjoyed this book It opened my eyes to the beauty found in living a life of simplicity seeing the good in forming friendships with the opposite gender with chastity The author understands what it means to live a life of humility of service to others and an experience that encourages a softening of the heart He is Catholic and has some great perspective on the religiousness of his religion I recommend reading this author's work at least once

  7. Lori Lori says:

    What a wonderfully thoughtful and honest book about our spiritual health and lives and what we can do to attend to them With grace humor honesty and care he asks tough uestions gives some sage advice and encourages the reader to endlessly seek God This book is rich and worth the time to invest slowly

  8. J. J. says:

    This book was a journey and took me several months to finish as I chose to read one chapter a day It was definitely a good way to start each new day Father Ron still ranks as one of my favorite spiritual writers

  9. Brian Wilcox Brian Wilcox says:

    Here as elsewhere Rolheiser a Catholic cleric writes as one of everyone gracing readers with a captivating inclusive and clear application of Christian spirituality not barnacled with dogma and institutionalization One of my favorite reads
