  • 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.

    A YEAR WITH THE CHURCH FATHERS

    The writings in this book are so profond and day by day the Church Fathers impart their loving wisdom like the benign Spiritual Fathers that they are. I read each passage on its appointed day. And then review the headings for the previous day - hence I am like a workman who under divine guidance is building his house of life. Best Uses: Daily Use; Pros: Beautiful leather cover, Excellent selection of re, Printed in USA
