How very difficult it is for most people to be joyful. Yet we were made for joy and have within our reach the means to achieve it. This book demonstrates how contemplative prayer is the path for the joy we seek. More particularly, it shows how contemplative prayer leads to a sense of self-worth and inner happiness which makes such joy possible.

The kind of contemplation which Father Catoir recommends is not an abstraction or the privileged achievement of the few but an everyday reality for those who are willing to make the effort. It is the core of a satisfying and joy-filled life of union with God and selfless service of our neighbor. This revised version contains much original material which adds to the value of what was already a highly ac¬claimed little volume on practical contemporary spirituality.
