Sister Maria Boulding s poignant reflections on loss and its meanings create a spiritual, contemplative framework against which readers can interpret their lives troubles and setbacks. Each passage embraces human failure and loss and speaks gently and eloquently to many forms of suffering. Those who set their goals high, yet struggle to grasp their own limitations and reconcile them with God s will, those who second-guess their paths in life, and those who mourn failed relationships, careers, or the premature loss of friends and family, will find comfort in the pages of this volume.

Thoroughly biblical, theologically sound and informed by the liturgy and personal prayer, [her books'] appeal seems to lie in the way they combine depth and universality with a tone that is both personal and affective, recalling that of medieval Cistercian Fathers. --The Times (of London)
A wonderful portrait of many failures throughout Scripture and how we all go through life dealing with the fear of failure and failure, itself. However, Boulding stresses that it is in failing that we come to realize how we can become successful. --Rev. John Hogemann, O.S.B.
Maria Boulding was one of the finest exemplars of the Benedictine monastic life, and a Christian spirit of quite rare depth and insight . . . Gateway to Hope is a book about failure which is pastorally sound, sympathetic, but never colludes with self-pity or the paralysis of mind and heart that failure can trigger. 'Failure or disappointment may be God's chance to open us more effectively than we can ever open ourselves, and to stretch us beyond our small hopes and expectations.' --James M. Gordon, author
