Partiendo de su experiencia en la práctica terapéutica y de su trabajo con grupos de meditación, Esteve Humet ha decidido poner por escrito este camino hacia el descubrimiento del Silencio interior. El objetivo del texto es ayudar no tanto a quienes ya están iniciados en la meditación o practican asiduamente alguna forma de oración, sino sobre todo a aquellos que oyen hablar del tema y desean entrar vivencialmente en él, pero no encuentran a nadie que les ayude en esta exploración. La meditación se nos presenta aquí no solo como una actividad, como un proceso pedagógico con un amplio abanico de posibilidades, sino también como una actitud vital en que la simplicidad es la base. El autor desea que los ejercicios propuestos sean, más que vínculos, ayudas compatibles con cualquier creencia u opción religiosa. Así pues, todos son relativos y, por tanto, opcionales; es decir, medios y no fines, ya que el único fin es la plenitud del Silencio.

This book is the powerful story of an amazing woman who converts to Catholicism at Harvard University, marries her college sweetheart and joyfully welcomes several children. After some successful forays into pro-life activism in New England, Ruth Pakaluk is struck with breast cancer and dies at the young age of forty-one. Ruth's story is told primarily through her humorous, sparkling and insightful letters, through which her realistic cheerfulness shines. A biographical sketch by her husband, Michael Pakaluk, fills in the needed background information, while a collection of her talks on abortion and on being a Catholic wife and mother round out the volume. Ruth Pakaluk exemplified the powerful integrity of someone who lives what she believes. She was steadfastly committed to Christ and to the culture of life, and this commitment was manifested in her consistent affirmation of life in her family, in her society and even in the face of her own death. Peter Kreeft, Professor of Philosophy and widely published author, referred to Ruth Pakaluk as the best and most effective and inspiring pro-life speaker he had ever heard. She was so renowned as a pro-life debater in New England, that eventually Planned Parenthood spokeswomen refused to spar with her in public. The forceful logic of her arguments was made even more compelling by the strength of her personality. All of Ruth's virtues - her love as a devoted wife and mother, her zeal for the truth and her hope while battling a terminal illness - offer inspiration and encouragement to anyone striving to put Christian faith into action.
