I'm a cradle Catholic, and throughout my life I've seen many devotions of older Catholics as just that... something the "old school" Catholics did, not anything relevant to my life. After all, some of those practices are exactly what confuses our protestant friends. For many years I thought it was just easier to stay away from these kinds of devotions all together. This book changed my mind. The author's insights are thought provoking and challenging on many levels. This devotional is worth the time and effort to read daily and to reflect upon to improve your spiritual life.
