From the Preface

"As a missionary, [the aim of Saint Paul of the Cross] was to preach the gospel as the living word of God and to do so in a language that was clear and simple. As a spiritual director and teacher of prayer, he passed on to others what he himself had learned: that when we pray, everything becomes possible. Gifted with imagination and dogged perseverance, an all too rare combination, Paul was able to see possibilities and then go on to actualise them."
