Shelves: theology , read-3ce-or-more , favourites When Carretto gave up a successful career as a leader of the Catholic Action Organization, work that involved a high-powered life full of meetings and travel, he did so to join a religious order about which he knew little. From that successful career he entered a life of poverty and prayer, living and working alongside people of the Saharan tribes.

As he puts it himself, he answered a call to: Come with me into the desert. And I went into the desert. A few ideas matured in solitude and taking shape around an activity which has been, without any doubt, the greatest gift that the Sahara has given me: prayer. In the best sense it is simple, there is no complexity of vocabulary or style. However, Carretto, like all the great Desert Fathers before him, uses his life in the desert to reveal and illuminate a spiritual journey and realities that are relevant to all people of faith.

His chapters provide a helpful map for the journey into the inner wilderness, towards the goal of unconditional love of God and of others, by means of contemplation and prayer.

He never ducks out of making clear the arduous, demanding nature of the journey, and the fact that in the end it will require the giving of all of self in a relationship of love.

In pursuing this journey, Carretto speaks from a position of loving commitment to his own tradition. However, his understanding of the love of God is that it overflows all boundaries that we may perceive.

How can the thread of love which links brothers be broken by an alleged purity of faith, or that religion, instead of being a bridge of union, should become a trench of death, or at least of unconfessed hate?

Best to fumble around in the dark, than to possess a light like that!
