Elizabeth of the Trinity (Elizabeth Catez) is a mystic of our times. She entered the Dijon Carmel in 1901 at the age of twenty-one, and died there five years later. Her biblical spirituality, based on the epistles of her "dear Saint Paul" and the mystery of the divine indwelling, has inspired countless Christians.
This second of three volumes of her Complete Works contains all of Elizabeth's surviving letters from Carmel. In simple and tender language, writing to friends and family, Elizabeth returns again and again to the great themes of her spirituality, the indwelling of the Trinity, silence and solitude, living by love, becoming a "praise of glory" by sharing in the dying and rising of Jesus Christ.
In his introductions and careful notes, Father Conrad DeMeester, OCD, explains the background of each of Elizabeth's letters from Carmel, most of which have never before appeared in English.
