I love how simple and easy to connect to daily life it is.
Dave Woods
The most compelling book of homilies ever recorded. Speaks to the heart to all people in all states of life in all social economic backgrounds. Inspiring. Moving. Perfect.

Included in the "Spiritual Reading" section of Fr. John McCloskey's 100-book Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan.
