Fr. Chalmers examines the foundations of Carmelite Marian spirituality and focuses on one aspect, that of Mary as she who listened to the Word of God and allowed that Word to shape her entire life. This develops the theme of Our Lady as model for each one of us as we seek to respond to the invitation to enter into an intimate relationship with God. Chapters also cover silent prayer and contemplation, with an appendix of the letter of Pope John Paul 11 to the Carmelite family and St. Albert's Carmelite Rule.
