    "wow!"

    (Audible review). Outstanding! Suddenly my 90-min commute wasn't long enough! I knew early in the book that this was going to be special. I hung on to every word! Will be a guiding companion on my journey.

    "mspirit"

    This book points the way to the father. It incorporates Pope John Paul 2 and St. John of the Cross and many other saints and Doctors in order to add merit to the writings of the book and. A must read.

    Story
    "Had to take it in twice in a row."

    I tried reading St. John of the Cross once and found that I was neither intellectually or spiritually prepared for his Ascent or Dark Night. After listening to St. Terese's Story of a Soul and Come Be My Light from the writings of Blessed Mother Teresa (both through audible.com), I found this book which explained simply and beautifully the spiritual journey to God based on the writings of these and other Saints. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has recognized in himself or herself even the slightest desire for God. (The four star performance was only because the narrator sometimes mixes pronouns or reads incorrectly based on a comparison with the eBook version.)

    Story
    "A favorite audio book"

    The author, Ralph Martin, has studied and taught on the college level classes on some of the well known saints he quotes from. For me book has been a great Christ centered guide to the spiritual life . Plus the narrator is easy to listen to.
    This book keeps on teaching me for I have listened to it three plus times and each time I get something more out of it.

    Story
    "A great writing for a genuine spiritual growth"
    Where does The Fulfillment of All Desire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best writings and guides for my spiritual growth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author brings together spiritual experiences of the greatest Doctors of Catholic Church who present me the Wisdom they have gained from God on their roads of finding Living God in their lives: St Therese of Lisieux, St John of the Cross, St Bernard, St Therese of Avila, St Catherine, St Francis.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Difficult to chose a single thing - I was amazed by mere fact of bringing the spiritual experiences of our Saints together in a new way and how they coincide one with another. Sometimes almost identical. If I were to choose a single one thing it would be a warning given by St Teresa of Avila to those who seek seriously spiritual maturity: (paraphrased): "I was misled for many years by my spiritual directors who kept calling no-sinful thing at all something which was in reality a venial sin and a venial-sinful thing that was a in reality a mortal sin until a Dominican priest straightened things out and called mortal sin a mortal sin and venial sin a venial thing. Since that moment my spiritual growth took a new growth."


    Any additional comments?

    Great thanks to the author who without making of his own "theological and spiritual acrobatics" shows a "proven" way to spiritual maturity by honest study of the Doctors of the Catholic Church.
