The experience of loneliness is as universal as hunger or thirst, but because it affects us more intimately, we are less inclined to speak of it. The Abbot of Mount Saint Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire, Erik Varden makes the case that when our souls and bodies cry out for companionship, it is not a sign of sickness, but of health. Consoling believers with the thought that the God who took on flesh to redeem man's loneliness leaves traces in history, Varden offers six meditative texts on Christian remembrance, including "Remember you are dust," "Remember you were a slave in Egypt," "Do this in memory of me," and "Beware lest you forget the Lord," complementing biblical exegesis with his far-ranging readings from literature, ancient and modern.
