With compassion and hope, spiritual writer Sr. Anne Field helps us face the inevitable losses we experience through aging, illness, and other causes of suffering. She gently urges readers to choose freely to replace gloomy attitudes of self-pity with God’s perspectives on pain and disabilities. In a reassuring way, she shows us how we can find peace and purpose in life by extending God’s kingdom on earth through our losses, not in spite of them.
Anne Field, OSB, is a member of a community of Benedictine nuns at Stanbrook Abbey in Worcestershire, England. She is the author of several best-selling books on the spiritual life, including From Darkness to Light, The Monastic Hours, and Delivered from Evil.
