These four short books are united by the idea that sanctity does not lie in penance, continuous prayer, miracles, and the life of withdrawal from the world, but is accessible to everyone. Here one will find advice on the ways to holiness in everyday life. In Holiness for Everyone. St Francis de Sales’ Introduction to the Devout Life St Francis, bishop of Geneva in 16-17th centuries, gives useful instructions and counsels for attainment of the goal of living a devout life; counsels about prayer and sacraments, virtues and vices, most usual temptations and instructions for renewal. St Francis stresses simplicity and openness to God, and invites everyone, no matter of what vocation, to holiness.
The book The Music of Silence. Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity for Everyone introduces us to the life of Elizabeth and presents us with her profound prayer to the Trinity.

More than twenty years ago, during a course on ‘The Use of Scripture in Theology’ taught by Gerald O’Collins SJ at the Gregorian, I recall him speaking of his deep love for Paul and the Pauline corpus. What struck him most was how utterly centred Paul was on Jesus as Lord and how he therefore felt no need to hide the mess of the Church: ‘Don’t talk of a golden age in the Church…there wasn’t one!’ Gerry said more than once! He also stressed the need for theologians to imitate Paul in being utterly given over to Christ – to be what Lonergan calls religiously converted. This is to live life by a transforming love that takes over and changes one’s world and the entire horizon within which one exists. This is very different to Lonergan’s merely intellectual conversion which, presumably, most theologians have undergone if they believe in God.

I was privileged to have met and spent the best part of a whole day in the company of Marc Cardinal Ouellet during the World Meeting of Families in Mexico 2009. Like him, I was guest speaker and during my speech I quoted from his ground-breaking book on the theology of the family – Divine Likeness: Toward a Trinitarian Anthropology of the Family. He graciously signed my copy of his book and I thought that was that. The following day however, he was special guest at the home of a lovely Mexican family just outside the city and I was fortunate enough to be invited.

In recent years scholars have made available for English readers much of the work of important Réssourcement theologians such as de Lubac and Congar.1 One exception, however, is the Dominican theologian and pupil of Marie-Dominique Chenu, Pierre-André Liégé, who died tragically young in 1979. This book by an Anglican priest and writer Dr Nicholas Bradbury, based on his doctoral thesis, fills the gap as part of Ashgate’s new series of ecclesiology titles. Liégé is scarcely known outside France and Francophone Canada, but as Bradbury shows he was a seminal figure2. Formed at the renowned centre known as Le Saulchoir, he was part of the controversial renewal of theological teaching in France during and after the Second World War; unlike some others he escaped direct censure.
