143 pages. Father William Barry believes that God wants an intimate relationship with each one of us - and that the deepest desire of our own hearts is to have an intimate relationship with God. Yet while we pursue this desire and long for its satisfaction, we also resist it - which can lead to a painful stagnancy. How can we move forward? In this book, Fr. Barry serves as our spiritual director, leading us on a series of brief "retreats" to help us understand the foundations of our relationship with God, what threatens it, and how we can continuously move forward into a closer and more meaningful relationship with God. In his warm, conversational style, Barry offers meditations, poses questions, and gently encourages us to respond to God's immeasurable love by following what is truly in each of our hearts - a longing to love him in return.
