    In Conversation With God

    This is the most beautiful book I have ever read. (Writings of the saints notwithstanding.) It is superior nourishment for anyone on a spiritual journey. It is spiritual direction at its finest. Fr. Fernandez writes from the very bosom of God. And, through this book (conversation), I have discovered and fallen in love with St. Jose Maria Escriva! I purchased an extra copy for one of my adult children and plan to buy one for each of them. I plan to buy the entire liturgical year series as well.

    A little book with alot of punch

    This is one of the most comprehensive and inspirational daily meditations book I've ever read. The scriptural quotes and footnotes makes this work, not only a valuable guide to prepare for Jesus' birth, but also a steadfast reference to essential themes in scripture that one can investigate for further information and understanding.
