Carlo Carretto - Essential Writings
Selected with an Introduction by Robert Ellsberg
"Modern Spiritual Masters" Series
Carlo Carretto (1910-1988) was a member of the Little Brothers of Jesus, the order inspired by the spirituality of Charles de Foucauld. Through his bestselling Letters from the Desert and more than a dozen other books, Carretto presented an ascetic, yet joy-filled spirituality that called to mind the spirit of his favourite saint, Francis of Assisi. This selection covers the spirituality of the desert, reflections on God, the church, prayer, engagement with the world, and the mystery of suffering and death.
