Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit

Thomas Keating

Thomas Keating has spent more than fifty years in sustained practice and devotion to the spiritual life. The results of this creative, humble activity are now summarized in this remarkable book, Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit.

As Father Keating says, the spiritual journey is a gradual process of enlarging our emotional, mental, and physical relationship with the divine reality that is present in us, but one not ordinarily accessible to our emotions or concepts. The spiritual journey teaches us, first, to believe in the Divine Indwelling within us, fully present and energizing every level of our being; second, to recognize that this energy is benign, healing, and transforming; and third, to enjoy its gradual unfolding step-by-step both in prayer and action.

Reviews & Endorsements:

Two Catholic presses have issued slim volumes on the gifts of the Spirit promised to faithful Christians by the New Testament. The much-published lecturer Thomas Keating focuses on the inner and personal meaning of the gifts of the Spirit; while the Haase's focus on the broader ecclesial or social potential of the gifts. Keating on fortitude: "It gives us energy to overcome major obstacles in the way of our spiritual growth." Haase and Haase on the same: "It transforms ordinary people into prophets who stand up for what is right." Each of these volumes is valuable and engagingly written; Keating's is more suitable for meditation and spiritual retreat, the Haases' for church study groups. Recommended for collections where there is a strong Catholic readership.
