Biography of Simone Weil

Simone Weil was born in Paris in 1909 to secular Jews parents. In 1936, she went to Spain to provide humanitarian support to the Republican troops in the Spanish Civil War. She had her first spiritual experience at the Solesmes Monastery when hearing Gregorian chant – in her own words – “Christ himself came down and He took me.” Since her death, in 1943, she has come to be known as a major spiritual thinker of the twentieth century. Her contributions can be found in the World Wisdom anthology, Pray Without Ceasing .
