The benevolence of God expresses itself in many different ways as the journey unfolds, and this beautiful book is a guide. Gradually, we come to realize that everything that happens in our lives is somehow the gift of our loving Father. This is sometimes apparent in the present moment, but most often it happens in retrospect when the elements of wisdom are beginning to find a place in our hearts. This is why the word “grace” is both the book’s title and appears in each of the chapter titles.
Every journey is ultimately individual. As Casey explains, what you hear within your own spirit is more significant than what he can say. But his aim is to help you listen to the voice of God in your heart. Sometimes what we feel surpasses our powers to describe it, and this is where we are obliged to extend the scope of our spiritual vocabulary, to find words that can adumbrate what we are experiencing. Grace aims to help you do that. It is also an invitation to look back on past years and to wonder at what God has done in your life.
“In this wonderful book, Michael Casey provides us with a theologically rich and prayerfully inviting exploration of the ways God reaches out to us, draws near to us, and leads us.”—DANIEL P. HORAN, OFM, author of All God’s Creatures and God is Not Fair, and Other Reasons for Gratitude
“I find Michael Casey to be our present-day Merton. Grace reveals why Fr. Michael is such a beloved spiritual mentor for so many. He weaves diverse sources into his own pondering, with wisdom gained from decades of living monastic life. He has much to offer to anyone who yearns for a down-to-earth relationship with God. A gentle, spiritual master—journey with him!” —LAURA SWAN, author of The Forgotten Desert Mothers and The Wisdom of the Beguines
