Let this benevolent saint be your spiritual guide in teaching you the art of prayer.

About this Book:

Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity was a devoted Carmelite sister who had a special relationship with the Holy Trinity. Her patience and enthusiasm for prayer helped her to lead a life that was holy, although brief. While outlining her strong spiritual characteristics, this book also teaches readers the secret of Saint Elizabeth's prayer through being a witness to her life. The divine indwelling of the Trinity, gazing on Christ, and unity of prayer and a busy life helped her find great power in her prayer. These secrets gave peace to her soul and can bring it to yours as well.

Much like Saint Thérèse's "Little Way" or Saint Edith Stein's vocation of love, we have a great deal to learn from Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity. Her example shows how to lead a holier life, how to integrate a deeper prayer life with a busy routine, and how to grow in love and fellowship with the Lord. Written by renowned spiritual director Father Jean Lafrance, this book will inspire readers as they embark on a new or ongoing prayer journey to find the Trinity in their hearts.

Features & Benefits:

  • Provides spiritual insights from Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity
  • Includes biographical information
  • Features the characteristics of prayer as experienced by Elizabeth
  • Helps the reader apply these prayerful principles practically to their own lives

Katherine says...
When this book arrived, I knew next to nothing about St. Elizabeth of the Trinity besides the fact she was canonized just a few years ago. This little book is just over 100 pages long and gives not only a biography of her life, but more so a glimpse into the importance of her life of contemplative prayer. The author weaves into his own commentary excerpts from her own writing, that of great Carmelites like St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila, as well as other contemporary writers on the topic of prayer. I was inspired by St. Elizabeths insights into this deep and profound prayer, and walked away with a desire to dive more into the interior quiet and rest she so recommended through the gift of contemplation. Id like to read more of her own writing and will have to add her autobiography to my book list. Pauline Books & Media provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
