"In the end, words must give way to silence, creating a space for self-transcendence and communion. The words on these pages are meant to invite interpersonal communion with others, with every living creature, and with the living God named "Father, Son,Spirit." The words now give way to silence. As words are left behind and pages set aside, we enter the space which they create. This wide open space is the region of wound and wisdom named "heart." It is in this place, which is not a place at all, where we live in prayerful communion with the living God. Seized by love's pure light and saturated by love's outpouring, the eye of the heart beholds the glory of God, three in the same love, Giver, Given, Gift/ing. Love speaking and breathing. Receive the Gift."
Michael Downey (excerpt).

And beautiful words they are too. I added this book the the Member's Suggested Books on our website.
