Another Lenten reading. This stunning treasure from an anonymous monk in the14th century has been wildly popular since it first appeared.

If you are a contemplative Catholic and have not known of it before you must encounter it now for this an essential work for contemplatives. “The Cloud of Unknowing” tells of a way to contemplate God, not only when we receive the Eucharist, or kneel in silence in the Adoration Chapel, but in each moment in our life’s stream of tiny moments.
