Paperback: 194 pages

A wonderful book, filled with marvels, mysteries, revelations, and wonders. . . .

There was a man of venerable life and blessed memory, the father and founder of many monasteries, whose name signifies that little bird called the dove, designating in a mystical sense the Holy Spirit. It was meet that this simple and innocent man should be called thus, who gave to the Holy Spirit a dwelling place in himself by his dove-like ways. He was beloved by all, for a holy joy ever beaming on his face revealed the joy and gladness with which the Holy Spirit filled his innermost soul.
