The roads of this world are often muddy. But that’s where God asks us, some of us very clearly and others more obscurely, to become contemplatives (see FAQ) and deep lovers of God.

This blog exists to explore this aspect of what it means to be a Christian and a Catholic. This blog doesn’t follow news or keep up to date. (That means it shouldn’t go out of date either.)

Please feel free to browse via the tag cloud or category list. They indicate some of the themes in the life of this “contemplative in the mud”.

I update daily or several times a week.

    The Little Sisters of Jesus in Chicago gave me your web address. May I share it with others in Foucauld family here in the USA?? Here is my Face Book page,http://www.facebook.com/groups/62652414530/

    Thank you for all you do. There is a small lay fraternity in Montreal, trying to grow in Canada.

    • I’m very glad to hear about the lay fraternity in Canada (where I’m originally from)! I hope and pray they do grow.

      Please do share my blog or any post with anyone you think may have an interest or find some small use in it. I think there are far too few resources of this kind online. Personally, I’m always very happy to find anything, too! =)

  2. I have a lot of resources that I would be happy to share with you. I have been involved with the life and spirituality of Br charles for 40 years. My great joy was to attend the beautification. 40 years ago I was in El Golea, and Beni Abbes.
    I wish you could see my Face Book page, I have tried to make it a real resource center. http://www.facebook.com/groups/62652414530/
    I do wish I could meet you, so I could hear the details of your story. In Him, Lennie
