Encountering the Depths

Author: Mother Mary Clare SLG

Editor: Ralph Townsend

Mother Mary Clare SLG (1906-88) entered the religious life in 1930, and was Reverend Mother of the Community of the Sisters of the Love of God from 1954-73. She was highly regarded by Anglicans and Roman Catholics alike as a spiritual teacher in the tradition of the Carmelite saints.

Dr Ralph Townsend has been headmaster of Winchester College since 2005. He read English at the University of Western Australia and has held a number of teaching appointments. In the early 1980s, he taught in the Theology Faculty of the University of Oxford, and was later Head of English at Eton College, followed by ten years as Headmaster of Sydney Grammar School and five years as Headmaster of Oundle School. First an Anglican and later a Roman Catholic, he has written books and articles and reviews in the areas of Church history and religious literature.

The late Mother Mary Clare SLG brought to the subject of prayer her unique blend of spiritual realism, vision and authority. In this book about the nature and practice of prayer, she reflects on the challenges of living a spiritual life in modern society. Out of the stillness of contemplation comes a deeper listening and an apostolate of prayer. All prayer begins and ends with God, for it is all God’s work.
