from the back cover:
In the long journey of spiritual life we can often feel lost, tired, unmotivated, resistant or fearful that we are on a path that leads nowhere. It is at such times that we need to hear once again the song of the ancient pilgrims: Ultreia! Ultreia! -“Go farther, go higher!”
Where is the path? Which way is forward? Where do I find strength to carry on? The Scriptures provide particular encouragement to those whose first desire is to keep moving forward in the spiritual life. Like wind blowing over fading coals, the Spirit urges us to go farther and higher in the pilgrimage of faith.
