  • A Year With The Church Fathers: Patristic Wisdom For Daily Living
  • A well-planned daily retreat 
  • Short readings for each day 
  • Perfect for reading in a year, or for any time

In A Year With The Fathers: Patristic Wisdom For Daily Living, Mike Aquilina, popular author on Patristics, gathers the wisest, most practical teachings and exhortations from the Fathers of the Church, and presents them in a format perfect for daily meditation and inspiration.

  • Learn to humbly accept correction from Saint Clement of Rome
  • Let Tertullian teach you how to clear your mind before prayer
  • Read Saint Gregory the Great and deepen your love of the Eucharist
  • Do you suffer from pain or illness? Saint John Chrysostom's counsels will refresh you
  • Do you have trouble curbing your appetite for food and other fleshly things? Saint John Cassian will teach you the true way to moderation and self-control

A Year With The Church Fathers is different from a study guide and more than a collection of pious passages. It is a year-long retreat that in just a few minutes every day will lead you on a journey of contemplation, prayer, resolution, and spiritual growth that is guaranteed to bring you closer to God and His Truth.

    Fantastic Year, year after year

    I purchased this copy for my pastor. I've had my copy for about 3 or 4 years and never tire of the gems of wisdom found daily from the writings of these brilliant men. I am ready to purchase another copy for one of my physicians who reads scripture daily and is one of the most caring person I have ever known. I think A Year with the Church Fathers is a wonderful gift for anyone you really appreciate. It reminds them daily of you.

    A Year With The Church Fathers

    An excellent compilation of meditations from the writings of the patristic fathers which helps to build a daily foundation for prayer and spiritual growth and awareness.

    So many places for this volume!

    I have looked at this title for as long as it has been published but only recently could find the money to purchase it. It is so well worth the amount I paid! I teach Archdiocesan Catechist Certification classes and direct our parish and school catechetical meetings here in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. I use the readings, the reflections and the prayer at the end of the readings & reflections for closing our meetings and classes. They are good substance and well-received by all! Thank you!

    Walking in their footsteps

    In reading this, it has been a blessing to know that what we are experiencing in our walk of faith today - has already been walked by God's good and faithful Church Fathers. They shine the light of truth to guide our path. Thank you Mike Aquilina for putting this together in a user friendly format!

    A Year with the Church Fathers

    I've enjoyed the readings so far. The book arrived in a timely manner and without any damage. It will be a good companion throughout the year.

    Very well done

    This is a great book, beautifully bound, quality paper, with beautiful illustrations on every other page. The book is of outstanding quality and is designed to be used year after year after year. Most important of all, the quotes taken from our church fathers are profound, meriting our daily meditation, and will aid our understanding of Christ and the Christian message.

    Very nice product

    Purchased on line for my husband's birthday. Also had it gift-wrapped. The blue wrap is very attractive and nicely wrapped. The gift card was a religious one, which was a very nice surprise. The book is soft leather bound and beautifully printed. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

    If you are looking for an unusual gift for Confirmation or RCIA this is a good one.
