Few people have ever seen or heard of The Spirit of Simplicity: it has been hidden for almost seventy years after quietly being published by the Abbey of Gethsemani in 1948.  Anonymously translated and annotated by a young monk named Thomas Merton, the book's author--who also is not mentioned by name in the original edition--is Jean-Baptiste Chautard, the famous French Cistercian whose only other book, The Soul of the Apostolate, has been a favorite of modern saints and popes, including Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Every generation struggles with the question of simplicity. In the history of our faith, there have been no more eloquent voices calling us back to simplicity than the monks of the Cistercian Order, from Bernard of Clairvaux to Chautard to Merton--all of whom contribute to this powerful book. Merton surrounds Chautard's text with his own remarks on simplicity, translations of classic texts by St. Bernard of Clairvaux, and commentary that allows readers to pursue the themes of simplicity in their own lives.… (mere)

This tiny volume contains some key insights into the character of Cistercian spirituality emphasizing both interior and exterior simplicity through reflection on the writings of St. Bernard of Clairvaux. If you have had the opportunity to walk through medieval Cistercian architecture, you will note the starkness of the buildings, the plainness of the windows and clothing and the almost utilitarian nature of the of the everyday environment. The monk (and any person ) trekking on the path of perfection. is admonished to methodically reduce one's dependence on things and emotions. The core of this relationship is "love". Simplicity takes on the character of abandonment that in the end become harmonious with everyday events and circumstances. Although the message may be medieval, its application has many implications.

I received an electronic copy in return for an honest review. ( )
