A volume of inspiring and thought-provoking poetry, this anthology contains writings inspired by monastic life. Filled with unique and holy individuals, such as Saint Marina—who, disguised as a monk, was accused of fathering a child—and Prioress Czeslaw Milosz—who, before entering the Benedictines, had been an actress—this collection will appeal to those wishing to deepen their spiritual life and insight.
