The Twelve Degrees of Silence
by Marie-Aimée de Jésus O.C.D.
Edited with Introductions and Reflections by Lucinda M.Vardey
Translated by Françoise Reuter & Lucinda M. Vardey
(2014 published by Novalis).

This is a little book of timeless wisdom on contemplative prayer and the gifts of practicing silence. It provides a step-by-step process of disabling distractions, enabling awareness and opening of the heart to a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with God.

Written by a young Carmelite in the mid-1880s in France, it is available for the first time in English.

"A small treasure in a world filled with often jarring, meaningless sounds, this work of Marie-Aimée de Jésus reaches us again in both a thoughtful and a challenging way."

Margaret Brennan I.H.M. from the Foreword.
