Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0819816329, Paperback)How do I find Christ in the people around me?
This compilation contains famous writings of twentieth century English mystic Caryll Houselander. A modern laywoman, Caryll was known for her chain smoking, affection for stiff drinks, and cutting remarks. Initially drawn into protesting and free thinking during her studies as an art student, she was disillusioned by the lack of charity among Christians.
But beneath this exterior and idealistic outlook, a deeply mystic soul was at work, seeking to find the face of Christ in the midst of her daily life. And that she did-not only in the members of the Church, but also in passengers on the subway and in the passersby on the crowded streets of London. Through her writings, Caryll shows us that we are all part of the great mystery of Christ's Mystical Body. She reveals how, through eyes of faith, we too can see Christ in ourselves and everyone we encounter in our midst.
Series Description: Today's questions. Timeless answers. Each volume of the Classic Wisdom Collection provides time-tested spiritual guidance for living a Christian life.
