Adrienne von Speyr, a Swiss mystic (1902-1967), begins her longest and deepest book on prayer, The World of Prayer, by anchoring the original source of prayer in the eternal dialogue exchange of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Her insight is an original and fruitful contribution that has yet to be realized in Christian reflection on prayer.

The original book, published in 1549 in the reign of Edward VI, was a product of the English Reformation following the break with Rome. The work of 1549 was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English

Prayer is something more than an exterior act performed out of a sense of duty, an act in which we tell God various things he already knows; a kind of daily attendance in the presence of the Sovereign who awaits, morning and evening, the submission of his subjects. But as the book progressed, Balthasar explained that by interiorizing the Our Father and Hail Mary, one gradually learns to make use of the key privilege of prayer, what the New Testament calls parresia.

In this profound book on the mystery of Mary, Adrienne von Speyr reflects . As with her other books, von Speyr helps us to savor and to appreciate each.

In this profound book on the mystery of Mary, Adrienne von Speyr reflects on the life, attitude, and prayer of the Mother of God. She shows how Mary's assent to God's will-her Fiat "Let it be done to me according to thy word"-is what defines and sanctifies every aspect of her life. She gives new insights into Mary's holiness, suffering, prayer, and role of spiritual motherhood for all mankind. As with her other books, von Speyr helps us to savor and to appreciate each word of Sacred Scripture as self-revelation from the Father through the heart of the Church, the Bride of the Son, in a loving exchange of the Spirit.

Prayer was a way of life for Adrienne von Speyr, one of this last century's great Catholic mystics. In this major work on prayer, edited by Hans Urs von Balthasar, Adrienne discusses the many aspects and kinds of prayer, the vocation of every Christian.

The fundamental theme of this work is that prayer, like everything else that comes to man through God's self-revelation in Christ (such as grace; faith, hope and love; or the realtionship between Christ and the Church), is ultimately rooted in God himself and in his triune exchange of life.

Beyond all purely creaturely motives and needs, Christian prayer is a participation in the inner life of the Trinity, which is revealed, prepared and accomplished in the world by Jesus Christ our Lord. By him it is made available for us to take part in.

This book is much more than a manual on how to pray. It gives an in-depth description of prayer: first the prayer of the Trinity, then the prayer of Christ, then of the Blessed Virgin, and finally that of all Christians. In particular, the section on the prayer of Mary is a masterful description of the various stages of growing in prayer. Mary is the perfect model because of her intimate association with her Son.

Adrienne von Speyr, a Swiss mystic (1902-1967), begins her longest and deepest book on prayer, The World of Prayer [Die Welt des Gebetes], by anchoring the original source of prayer in the eternal dialogue exchange of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Her insight is an original and fruitful contribution that has yet to be realized in Christian reflection on prayer. It is an idea that once realized makes perfect and profound sense. As far as I know, as a doctoral student in Theology, this idea has never been said with this much clarity and depth.

Each person of the Trinity relates to the other in an attitude of prayer. The Son looks to the Father in that attitude of expectation and fulfillment that characterizes prayer. The Son beholds the Father in love, trust, and expectation. The Father responds with beholding, love, and fulfillment. The Holy Spirit wraps all of this eternal dialogue of exchange with the divine fire of his love while also being the eternally spirated fruit of this prayerful contemplation and action. The prayerful aspects of worship, petition, and decision are also present in the loving exchange between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This first section of the book makes one realize the dynamic relations in the one God who is Trinity.

Adrienne then moves to discussing the prayer of Adam and Eve before and after the Fall. The prayerful intimacy with God in Paradise is recognized by Adam and Eve simply as walking with God in the Garden. After the Fall, the realm of prayer is characterized by distance and longing ("De profundis", Ps 130:1) to behold once more the face of God.

With the Incarnation, creation is brought through Christ's work of redemption into his triune intimacy with the Father and Holy Spirit. He breathes on us the Holy Spirit enabling us to pray the prayer he taught us, the Our Father.

Adrienne also offers Mary as a source for understanding prayer. At each stage in Mary's life, which was lived so closely to her son, the Son of God, we are taken into the simplicity of praying to God with transparency, "I know not man" (Lk 1:34), and obedience, "be it done unto me" (Lk 1:38). We learn that authentic prayer is letting our subjective word be taken over by the Lord's objective Word.

The book could stop here, but it keeps offering more and more profound insights. Adrienne examines the growth of prayer, prayer in the different vocations, or states, of life, three kinds of prayer, direct and indirect prayer, prayer as standing before the face of God, the relation of nature and grace in prayer, and the love and fruit of prayer.

When reading this rich book on prayer life, one should know that Adrienne dictated it from within a mystical state of prayer. So it is a book on prayer written in prayer; therefore, it is best read in prayer. I can think of no book on prayer better than this one. Accessible to the beginner and profoundly deep for the advanced, I heartily, and urgently, recommend it.

Adrienne von Speyr is one of the most insightful writers on Religious topics of the twentieth century. This book on prayer is a point in case. She is a mystic, yet she makes her material approachable to the ordinary reader.

With this particular book I would suggest beginning at the Third Chapter, or so, gaining some understanding of the elements of prayer, and then return to the opening Chapters, which describe the more mystical aspects of prayer.

I recommend this book to anyone who is looking not only to gain some insights into the world of prayer, but to deepen one's own experience in prayer.
