In the Spirit of Happiness

By Monks of New Skete (Electronic Book, 2001)
The Monks of New Skete believe human beings were created to be happy, and that the elements of a monk's life -- self-discipline, prayer, actsof love and forgiveness -- are the pathways anyone can follow to achievetrue happiness. Taking us inside a contemporary American monasticcommunity, "In the Spirit of Happiness" shares the monks'continuing quest for spiritual fulfillment and offers fresh insightsinto improving relationships with other people as well as new ways ofconnecting to the divine.

"Who of us in our search for the Holy has not envied the monk and thespiritual world of maonasticism? In this book envy is overcome bygratitude as we are taken into the world of the Holy by these veryworldly monks: worldly in that they understand that God's world andGod's way are meant for us to know and enjoy. I recommend this book toall thoughtful and needy pilgrims."
