"Thirsting For God: Prayers from a Monastery" written by the Monks of Saint Meinrad Archabbey and edited by Br. Francis de Sales Wagner, O.S.B. The monks of Saint Meinrad Archabbey dedicate their lives to prayer, work, and community life based on the Gospel. The monks strive to listen for and respond to the voice of the Lord in the daily rhythm of their lives. They thirst for God, and with Christians everywhere, lift up their hands, call on God's name, and say, "Lord, teach us to pray." "Thirsting for God" offers a sip from the deep well of contemplation available to us all. The prayers, poems, and reflections shared in this small volume express a yearning not so different from our own. Truly, our combined thrist for God reveals a cup that overflows.
