- The Fulfillment of all Desire - Book Recommendation

The Fulfillment of All Desire: A Guidebook for the Journey to God Based on the Wisdom of the Saints

By Ralph Martin

This tremendous book discusses the spiritual journey that results from serious spiritual progress through what is termed the Purgative, Illuminative, and Unitive Ways, ultimately ending with the Beatific Vision. This journey, unique and different for all, contains broad similarities as we seek the Lord, and is masterfully described by seven "Spiritual Doctors” of the Church: Sts Augustine, Catherine of Siena, Bernard of Clairvaux, Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisiuex, John of the Cross, and, Francis De Sales. This book is written for both those who are beginning the spiritual journey, as well as for those who have been on the journey for many years. Some of the best Catholic thought on the topic of spiritual growth is contained in this encouraging book.

In Christ, Brian

  1. Just wanted to add my comments: I have this book--it is wonderful. I've been through it more than once, and have marked much in it to go back to for reference.
