About the Book

‘At the Center of our being is a point of pure truth, ‘ wrote Thomas Merton, ‘ a point or spark which belongs entirely to God...This little point of nothingness and of absolute poverty is the pure glory of God in us.’ Merton called this Center Point, Le Point Vierge the Virginal Point. Here, we and God are untied in a Mystery of inexpressible Presence. LE POINT VIERGE: Meditations on the Mystery of Presence is a year of daily meditations exploring the Mystery of Presence as we experience It in the Virginal Point in our hearts. Practicing Presence is a sure and certain way to make fresh contact with God. God is not an Object of our understanding but a Mystery of Presence encountered in the Virginal Point of our hearts. It is hoped that by reading LE POINT VIERGE, the reader will discover the truth of St. Augustine’s words: ‘You, O God, were more inward to me than my most inward parts and higher than my highest’ (Confessions 3.6.11).
