It is to the book’s credit that, whether one is lay or ordained, single or married, man or woman, American or African, there is sure to be a saint who can be an inspiration to you. . . . I look forward to continuing to use these books as a means of prayer and, in the process, meeting some new friends in the Lord!St. Anthony Messenger
