I hope you had a rich and meaningful Easter. I'm always so glad when Holy Ground arrives, because I know it will prompt me to slow down, sit, and reflect. A real blessing -- L.S.

Letters from the Holy Ground
Comments from our readers.
These letters are signposts to the immediacy and accessibility of Holy Ground for any and all of us. Loretta Ross doesn’t tell us that a life of prayer is easy, but she does demonstrate its here-ness and now-ness: the Holy Ground is in our own backyards. This is a lively winsome, and intelligent witness to the fullness and richness of a contemplative life.

Very few of us have spent years listening to God in the directness of a hermitage. Loretta Ross-Gotta shares with us some of the very human struggles and very God given graces that have emerged from her long years as a hermit. The broad range of her experiences alone, in nature, and counseling God-hungry people who come to her are full of insights and passionate caring for true life in God.
– Tilden Edwards.
True spirituality reunites all things into one world, one world that is good, trustworthy, and enchanted with endless meaning. This fine book leads us gracefully into just such a world. What a joy to find such wisdom, depth, and breadth coming from my own hometown. I can gratefully go home again – and you can too.
– Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.
I had no idea of the treasure chest of insights, soul touchings, sermon illustrations, and laughter that were gifts from your book. Thank you for sharing the sacred in all its dimensions.
