This chapter describes the genealogy, definition, and phenomenology of the ministry of presence as a contemporary form of religious ministry common across different religious communities. Resonances with Christian theological doctrines and devotional practice connected with notions of eucharist and incarnation founded in the French mystical tradition are explored. Also considered are political critiques of the ministry of presence as a quietist form of ministry.
