This humble Carmelite lay brother became a light in the turmoil that
gripped the Europe of his day. However it is not only his life and times
that enrapture us, but his great attraction to God's love combined with
his method of prayer. As he put it himself: the holiest, most ordinary,
and most necessary practice in the spiritual life is that of the
presence of God. It consists in taking delight in and becoming
accustomed to his divine company.
