      Product Description
      Adrienne von Speyr, a renowned mystic and spiritual writer from
      Switzerland, was received into the Catholic Church at the age of 38 by
      one of the theological giants of the 20th century, Fr. Hans Urs von
      Balthasar, on the Feast of All Saints, 1940. Balthasar became her
      spiritual director and confessor until her death in 1967, during which
      time Adrienne was favored with many gifts of authentic mystical
      prayer. Balthasar considered one of the central characteristics of
      Adrienne's prayer to be her transparency to the inspirations she
      received from God, along with a deep personal communion with the
      saints.
      Over a period of many years, Adrienne would see the saints (and other
      holy people) at prayer, and she would dictate what she saw to Fr. von
      Balthasar - while she was in a state of mystical prayer. This book
      presents these powerful, unique mystical insights into the prayer
      lives of many saints and holy people taken from Adrienne's direct
      visions of them in prayer. Here are the names of just a small number
      of the Saints whose prayer lives we get a glimpse of in this amazing
      book: St. John the Apostle, St. Augustine, St. Francis, St. Thomas
      Aquinas, St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the
      Cross, St. John Bosco, St. Edith Stein and many, many more. Fr. von
      Balthasar gathered these spiritual vignettes into the first volume of
      the "Nachlasswerke" (works intended to be published only after
      Adrienne's death), the Book of All Saints.

      In this amazing spiritual work, the reader is able to participate in
      the devotional and spiritual life of the Church throughout the
      centuries by learning how numerous saints and holy people prayed, thus
      reflecting on the timelessness and beauty of the prayer of the Church.
