In the inner stillness where meditation leads, the Spirit secretly anoints the soul and heals our deepest wound. St John of the Cross.
In this collection of poems, Paul Kraus uses many images to express how the divine anointing of our souls takes place. He illustrates how listening in silence to the Holy Spirit deep within ourselves makes us familiar with this healing unction. We begin to experience inner healing and discover in wonder the spiritual heart of our own life.
‘I am delighted to have read and greatly enjoyed this collection of poems. They clearly arise from a strong and sincere practice of contemplative prayer. For those who are already meditating they will share the common pilgrimage and for those who may be new to this path I am sure they will be an incentive to begin and persevere.’
