 Our Description

A soul desiring to give itself in love to God faces great challenges that require understanding and some encouraging advice. Written in a style of short and effective meditations on prayer and contemplative spirituality, the concise reflections in this book address the heart of a soul's interior response to God. God's desire to draw souls to a deeper gift of themselves is inseparable from his desire to draw them into a deeper encounter with the sacred mystery of his presence.

Offering an abundance of insights into the value of silence, deep faith, trust and interior surrender to God, Father Haggerty also illumines the link between contemplation and love for poverty and the poor, and makes a strong appeal to the importance of prayer as the primary answer to the crisis of faith that afflicts so many people today.

The longing of souls for a deeper contemplative encounter with God is indeed a sign of the times. When it is nurtured properly and begins to burn as a passion of the soul, the love for prayer becomes a lifelong quest.


"May Father Haggerty's reflections assist many to 'put out into the deep' of the life of prayer." 
— Raymond Cardinal Burke

"A great invitation stirs within these pages to embark on the ultimate quest for God and holiness."
— Fr. Augustine Di Noia, O.P.

"That a book like this one has been written in our times is an unexpected joy and a cause for enormous gratitude. Read this book, rejoice, and be reawakened to the Gospel."
— Matthew Levering, Ph.D., Professor of Theology, Mundelein Seminary

"Fr. Haggerty provokes, encourages, and reassures Christians who struggle to remain faithful to prayer when the Lord seems to be silent. This work offers a very fresh, attractive, and compelling challenge, inviting readers to take heart, to expect more, and to give more to the Lord."
— Sr. Sara Butler, M.S.B.T.

"Father Haggerty reveals that the most active of saints found the wellspring of their energies in the prayer of contemplation, by developing the habit of talking to God, intimately."
— Fr. Romanus Cessario, O.P.
