"Desert Spirituality" involves accepting the poverty of one's own heart, allowing oneself to be lead by Jesus through his Word and gentle voice of the Holy Spirit. It is a call to continuing conversion, a way of discovering the forgiving and healing love of the Father, and of entering more deeply into union with him. The teaching of St. Peter Damian is important for understanding the solitary communion of the hermit with the entire Church. Damian called a hermit a minor ecclesia, a Church in miniature, in communion with all its members. The life is a radical choice of God and a life of radical solidarity with all of humanity.
