Endorsements & Reviews-

Waiting for the Presence is an ancient Eastern concept of staying in a holy place until God speaks to the pilgrim. In this book Fr. Wild shows how this way can still be practiced today. At once deeply personal and revealing, it is also discreetly silent on some special graces from the Lord. Here the reader will find a burning love for Christ the Lord who can accompany one on the lonely top of the Mt. of Olives or beside the starlit, midnight shore of the Sea of Galilee. Beyond a strong link to Catherine Doherty’s spirituality and the Desert Fathers, you will discover here an openness to the Holy, which is in fact a profound interiorization of the Holy Places. Holy enthusiasm breathes throughout the book and can be contagious, as it was for the typesetter. I hope more pilgrims who come to the Holy Land will heed Fr. Wild’s practical hints on how to do, rather, how to live a true pilgrimage experience.
