Tears of an Innocent God: Conversations on Silence, Kindness and Prayer (Mahwah, NJ: Paulist Press, 2015)

One of the great joys of my relationship with the Monastery of the Holy Spirit has been the opportunity to get to know Br. Elias Marechal. Unassuming and soft-spoken, beneath his humble demeanor he is a true master of the spiritual life — and in his book, Tears of an Innocent God, he poetically and evocatively shares his wisdom with us. Br. Elias is a storyteller and a poet, and so this book is rich with narrative, parable, and striking images. While it includes some useful spiritual exercises, it is not a “how to” book but rather a nuanced expression of what it means to be a contemplative, seen from the inside.
