He worked for the Association for Promoting Retreats for many years. In the last three years of his life, he was Warden of the Community of the Sisters of the Love of God.

This book is important reading both for solitaries and for those who seek to guide and support them in their calling. Gilbert Shaw defines the solitary life as a witness to the love and power of God revealed in the mystery of Christ crucified and glorified. While emphasising the ongoing need of the Church for the witness of solitaries, the author demonstrates that such a life cannot be undertaken lightly.
