Nicolas Herman, Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection
Nicolas Herman, Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection remains one of the most beloved spiritual writers of all time, with his book Practice of the Presence of God remaining in print since its original publication in 1692. At the age of twenty-six he entered the Order of the Discalced Carmelites in Paris, where the friar's longest-running job was as a kitchen worker. His spiritual wisdom was only fully recognized after his death, when his letters and a handwritten manuscript with the title Spiritual Maxims, or Ways for Acquiring the Presence of God were discovered among his effects.
