Brother Lawrence: The Practice Of The Presence Of God - Forward Movement Publications A very short primer by a lay Carmelite brother from the 1600's on finding joy in all things through the sweet surrender to Divine Will. Not a how-to but a what-can-be-accomplished, leading to the "unclouded vision" of the Creator.

Composed of letters, spiritual maxims, and a character study by a contemporary.

"Believe me, count as lost each day you have not used in loving God."
