How does a human person "grow" spiritually? How do we "work out our salvation"? What are we to expect, and anticipate, on this journey of searching for, and finding, and following our Lord? This is our path, our pilgrimage - how important it is to have a guide!
This book re-presents in a new way the guide of traditional Catholic spirituality, tested and proven in the crucible of holy saints, over many centuries. The human soul develops, and grows, in a similar way to other aspects of a human person: we grow physically, we grow emotionally, we grow intellectually in stages. So also, our spiritual life develops in stages, three stages: the beginning, or purgative stage; the proficient, or illuminative stage; the perfect, or unitive stage. Understanding this traditional Catholic spirituality will give the reader powerful insights into his or her personal joumey and pilgrimage!
After reading this, you may well exclaim, "Why isn't this taught in every parish in America? Why haven't I heard this before?" The strange answer may be that this traditional Catholic wisdom is receding into obscurity in our times, respected and passed on by a few, but largely unknown or ignored by many. This tradition of the three ways needs to be rediscovered in the Church today!
