Set the World on Fire
Set the World on Fire by Vinita Hampton Wright is an exceptional resource for a do-it-yourself retreat. Wright has crafted a work which allows individuals to take time out of their busy schedules to focus on the Lord, with the aid of some powerhouse spiritual coaches.
Wright draws upon the words of St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Catherine of Siena, and St. Hildegard of Bingen to demonstrate how a life lived in concert with God should be lived.
The author demonstrates how to love, how to trust, how to abide by the truth, and how to use our creative juices to draw closer to Jesus. With the female Doctors of the Church as guides, Wright illuminates a path of spiritual fulfillment.
Wright offers a fine tribute to these spiritual sojourners by stating, "They have struggled, as we do. They have overcome trials, as we do. they have befriended God, as we endeavor to do...Through their distinctive gifts, these women became who God meant them to be, and each in her own way set the world on fire--with flames of love, wisdom, courage, and compassion."
