By Pierre-Thomas Dehau, O.P. | Introduction by Sr. Maria of the Angels, O.P.
The Living Water, one of Fr. Pierre-Thomas Dehau’s many books, is a treatment of the contemplative life as the life of wisdom concerned with a mysterious reality, hidden and inaccessible to human powers alone. In these pages, the fruit of sixteen of his retreat conferences, Fr. Dehau guides the reader into an understanding of how to grow in union with God through charity and contemplation. The Living Water is essential reading for those who are living out a religious vocation, for those who are discerning the call to a religious vocation, and for parents who are educating their children in the school of virtue.
“If you knew the gift of God and who it is who says to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
Pierre-Thomas Dehau, O.P., was born in Bouvines, France, in 1870. He was a prolific preacher and was friend and spiritual director to many, including Julien Green, Marthe Robin, and Jacques and Raissa Maritain. He died in 1956, leaving a rich legacy of writings on prayer, apostleship, liturgy, and devotion to Jesus and Mary.
