Mountains and lake graphic.

The Desert Fathers

Put aside all those ’little books’ that they sell today and try this one instead. Here is wisdom from men and women who went to the wilderness and listened to God. Short, snappy, and right to the point saying. Some will make you laugh with self-recognition and others help you to live a sacred life. You may be like thousands before you and find you love these first hermits who yearned for God above all else.
