 Connie Rossini blogs about faith-based education and Carmelite spirituality at Contemplative Homeschool. She is also the administrator of Catholic Spirituality Blogs Network. Now she has written a small e-book Five Lessons From the Carmelite Saints That Will Change Your Life as an experiment to check reader’s  hunger for future books on Carmelite spirituality.

Connie is gifted; she writes a concise introduction to a spirituality which is often perceived as complicated. A complete novice will understand her modern straight-forward insights and suggestions. There are five sections which explain five  basics  concepts for a  spiritual life:

  1. You were made for union with God.
  2. Holiness begins and ends with love.
  3. Prayer is necessary for salvation.
  4. Little things matter (a lot).
  5. The greater your trust, the greater your spiritual growth.

Following in the tradition of the spiritual classics, Connie’s book, while simple and straightforward, contains countless layers of meaning which are revealed like the layers of an onion. It is the kind of book that should be read again and again because every reading will draw a prayerful reader deeper into a more intimate union with Christ himself if he yields to the  Holy Spirit.
