A brief read, but a pleasant one. Spiritual conferences given by Mother Mary Francis to the contemplative nuns under her care, this are of course applicable to any friendship, and are easy to read, yet clear and clear-sighted. A good spiritual read!
A beautiful but practical and frank book on friendship. Given as a series of conferences to her Poor Clares, Mother Mary Francis' words are totally applicable to friendships outside the cloister. I love her writing style and her practical and intuitive grasp of human nature.
A beautiful set of meditations on friendship: useful for EVERYONE, not just cloistered nuns!
