7 thoughts on “Heaven in Faith: St. Elizabeth of the Trinity – with Dr. Anthony Lilles”

  1. These podcasts have been a true blessing to me. Praise God for such a beautiful gift! Thank you for introducing me to a new friend in heaven, Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity! May everyone involved in this series continue to grow in holiness.

  2. I have been contemplating in the spiritual life for more than 20 years but after listening to this, and the “Last Retreat” I feel like I am just at the beginning of my conversion. Amazing and life changing with this new saint. I have very similar health problems as St. Elizabeth so, I am so glad that I did not die before incorporating these purifying contemplative retreats. I thought that I was ready but God is intervening for my salvation.

  3. Dear Anthony and Kris,

    Thank you so much for this wonderful resource. I continually come back to your discussion of St. Elizabeth’s phrase, “my deepest center.” What a helpful description for contemplative prayer!

    Thank you both,

  4. + I listened to this podcast going to & from work this semester; I learned so much that I had never encountered before & it made a huge difference in my prayer life & spirituality.
