Praise

The Monastic Heart is essential reading for anyone wishing to find the compass of their heart and the wellspring from which to live fully. Joan Chittister invites us to integrate our practice and discover our innermost way of seeing. This mystical wholeness aligns our souls with our spacious God. Seeing as God sees is within our reach, and this book helps us find our true selves in loving.”—Gregory Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries and New York Times bestselling author of Tattoos on the Heart

“One of the Church’s contemporary prophets teaches us, simply and clearly, how to cultivate our inner lives, and so encounter the One who desires to encounter us.”—James Martin, SJ, author of Learning to Pray

“To engage these pages is to hear a grateful hymn to the monastic life Sister Joan has known and loved. I notice particularly how often in this book Joan uses the word you. She seems to be handing over the baton, asking each one of us who listen to pick up our own share of the will of God for the world.”—Norvene Vest, editor of Still Listening

“Refreshing, practical . . . We learn that the ‘monastic heart’ is a portable thing, a heart that we all can carry in our busy lives as we respond deeply to the suffering of Mother Earth and the world around us. . . . A beautiful, handy guide to bringing out the best in ourselves as we try to serve the future charged with the wisdom of the past.”—Rev. Matthew Fox, author of Julian of Norwich and Hildegard of Bingen

“A beautiful and wonderfully useful book for introducing the wisdom and peace of the monastery into our daily lives. . . . I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to bring the joy of St. Benedict’s Rule into their hearts.”—Philip Freeman, PhD, professor of humanities at Pepperdine University
