Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God by Cynthia Bourgeault (2001)
At a time when people are yearning for good news, Cynthia Bourgeault invites us to find our way to the hope that does not disappoint or fail. In our usual way of looking at things, hope is tied to outcome. Cynthia introduces us to a different kind of hope that has its source not in events but in the mercy of God, a lifeblood of compassion connecting our heart to God s heart and the heart of all creation. In five interwoven meditations, Mystical Hope shows how to recognize this hope in our own lives, where it comes from, how to deepen it through prayer, and how to carry it into the world as a source of strength and renewal.
From Mystical Hope:
The ground of hope is very real and immensely powerful – if you have the courage to yield yourself all the way into it. The real problem with much of our Christian presentation of hope and healing is that it does not push far enough: it stays at the fix-it level. Beneath that is something infinitely deeper and truer.
