Mother Angelica was honored by St. John Paul II for reaching millions on EWTN and changing hearts with simple words and phrases. Her special charism was an ability to link the life of Christ with your own. This was her constant emphasis because it was at the core of her own faith, which she taught with wit and pathos. Her reward was seeing nonbelievers convert and Catholics return to the Church with new prayer lives and powerful spiritual understanding. Now collected for the first time in one volume are her choicest reflections and exhortations. Their theme: how to draw closer to Jesus authentically, without self-deception, but also without exaggerated fear.
Mother s writings are distilled into twenty-nine brief , brilliant chapters to strengthen your daily spiritual practices. Revealed here is a saintly soul determined to share her profound understanding with a wider public. Tens of millions of viewers later, and even after death, she is still at work.
Besides abundant Scripture references and Mother s personal prayers for dozens of everyday intentions, worries, and crises, the book s chapters include:
- Resisting Temptation
- Love and Reparation
- A Deeper Understanding of Repentance
