I read this right after college and am reading it again now. Gabrielle Bossis was a French woman, a single actress, who had interior locutions and wrote them down in a diary. The spirituality in this book meshes with mine and builds me up and helps me focus with a great perspective. Good for morning meditations more than a straight read-through. One of my many favorite quotes from it is "The more Christian one is -- that is, the more one is Mine -- the kinder one is. So you be the kindest of all ...more

This one is a recommendation from a bookseller that I had scribbled on a deposit slip more than a decade ago and recently found tucked away... Providence... tender and lovely.

This kind of books goes to show that our God is speaking God and we have to be attentively listening to Him with the ears of our hearts and be always ready with a nice pen and a nice writing journal. We should jot everything down and there is a time to go back and give thanks to the Lord for how good He is and also for glorifying Him amongst many people and that those words which He gave us could instrumentally help somebody in their walk with the Lord.
As we journal and pray, we get more and mor

I read this while reading Through the Year with Padre Pio: 365 Daily Readings, and Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence . That may have been a bad decision because the other two books were more personable: I could grasp Padre Pio in the one, and the scripture and meditations that "brought Jesus to life" in Jesus Calling, but in He and i, I often felt disconnected and unworthy. Perhaps this is because it was written at a different time in history, the other two being more recent. I defin ...more

It's a wonderful little book, filled with private meditations and prayer. It's probably best as a night-time reader, taking little bits in here and there. I think it would provide much encouragement for many of us, especially those who are caught up in everyday life.

I've first read some lines from this book when I was 5 years old and, while I was learning to read, my mother was often asking me to read it to her: after many years I remember the sweetness of the words of Jesus to Gabrielle.
A book from which we can learn the confidence and love we should have when we are with our sweet Brother and Savior.
Unforgettable reading.

I'll be reviewing this one for Catholic Company on my blog within tbe week, but for now I will just say it is definitely one to add to your spiritual reading list.
