Description - Sensing Your Hidden Presence by Ignacio Larranaga

"An electrifying book from the first line. No one interested in Christian spirituality and its relation to contemporary problems can afford to miss this powerful witness to the power of living faith in Christ founded on an intense life of prayer." - Benedict J. Groeschel, O.F.M. Cap. Many people fear that the process of secularization will end by undermining faith and that, as a consequence, life with God will continue to diminish until it is completely extinguished.

Author Biography - Ignacio Larranaga

Ignacio Larranaga, O.F.M. Cap., was born in 1928 in the Basque region of Spain. He entered the minor seminary of the Capuchin Order at age twelve and finished both his secondary studies and later his ecclesiastical studies with them. Upon ordination, his special gifts for preaching and for music were recognized. He had always felt an attraction for Chile and, at age thirty, he was assigned there. Thus began a full and effective mission with the founding of the Center of Franciscan and Pastoral Studies for Latin America, an educational and publishing community. In 1974 Fr. Larranaga felt specially called to awaken among the clergy the desire to encounter God. He began a series of retreats whose object was "to find the living and true face of God" and to introduce the retreatants to a deep experience of God. The "Encounters with God" movements was begun and has since spread from Chile throughout South America, to Central America, to Spain and now to the United States. It is estimated that a hundred and thirty thousand people have attended these week-long retreats. Sensing Your Hidden Presence (originally published as Muestrame Tu Rostro) is Fr. La
