" Fins connaisseurs de l'âme humaine, les premiers moines du désert l'avaient déjà découvert : l'homme est très souvent aux… prises avec des pensées fort profanes. Les trois vices principaux que sont le besoin permanent de manger (gloutonnerie), les fantasmes sexuels (luxure) et l'amour de l'argent (cupidité) sont les premiers à se manifester ; viennent ensuite les trois émotions que sont la tristesse, la colère et l'acédie ; et enfin les deux vices spirituels de la vaine gloire et de l'orgueil. Or nous sommes, nous aussi, tous assaillis par ces mêmes obsessions. Comment y faire face sans pour autant livrer un combat impossible ? Cette "pharmacie spirituelle" veut nous accompagner à appréhender nos sentiments négatifs pour leur opposer des paroles de sérénité, d'humour et de confiance. Tout cela dans un seul but : vivre en paix avec nous-mêmes. " -- 4e de couv. Titre uniforme: Die spirituelle Hausapotheke.
