Michel Quoist's method, he says, is to live and to observe how others live, and then to reflect on what is seen and learned. "I wish to write nothing but what has been lived."

Today's Christian cannot live as the Christian lived yesterday. He must find a new form of life. His spirituality cannot be that which was formed for monks, but must come out of his living in the world, where he encounters God in his everyday life. Father Quoist makes frequent reference to the laity as important in the development of this new life.

Read from the Book

In the final analysis, man today, even less than yesterday, can truly be man only if he is aware of humanity. Men, wherever they may be, can no longer ignore other men. Everywhere, regardless of social class, nation and race, men are growing; everywhere they are reaching up to, and demanding, total development. Nothing, no one, will be able to prevent this radical transformation of the world. The striving of peoples throughout the world, their battles, the blood that they shed throughout the world for their freedom, is a tidal wave on the ocean of humanity; it is an immense and sorrowful sigh from a body which only yesterday had not been fully born but which today, in all its members, demands that it be allowed to live in the full light of day....And the Christian of today, who belongs to this mutating race of humans and who, with humanity, explores these paths, will not be able to live his Christianity except within the framework of these new developments. The grace of Christ must inevitably lead him to a new form of contemplation, to new prayers, to new commitments; that is, to a new form of the Christian life. Today's Christian will not live as did yesterday's Christian. He can not, and he does not wish to. He must not.
