Make your celebration of Advent and Christmas a powerful time of growth and healing. The simple meditations and spiritual exercises in A Time of Fulfillment will help you remember the closeness of Christ in your heart and renew your faith.
Anselm Grün, OSB, is a monk of the Benedictine abbey of Münsterschwarzach, Germany, where he has been cellarer since 1977. He is the author of many books, lectures, and courses on themes of spiritual life.
Anselm Gr�n, beloved Benedictine and spiritual guide for thousands of grateful Christians, here gives us yet another small gem of consolation, instruction, and gentle guidance. As is always true with Gr�n, the tone is conversational, and the pages rich with allusions and scriptural depth. The result is that as we follow him through these Advent and Christmas lessons, we discover again the authenticity of the ancient seasons, even as we experience once more their unfathomable power to heal and make whole.
