The popular spiritual writer Fr. Rawley Myers presents daily readings on the spiritual life according to the saints. Combining both the thoughts and writings of the saints along with interesting biographical facts and events in the saints lives, Father Myers allows the saints to instruct us on how to be like Christ.
As Christ's closest friends, the saints knew Him best. They have the wisdom of Heaven, and are our tried and true guides to Heaven, for the saints take us to the feet of Christ. The saints in this book not only inform us about Christ, but they introduce us to Christ, whom they loved so much. To know Jesus is the heart of our faith. No one knew Him better than the saints.
"Rawley Myers has provided us with a way to encounter a saint every day. In a couple of paragraphs or in twenty-five lines, we meet Augustine or John of the Cross, Gertrude or Vincent de Paul. Saints clarify and instruct. Father Myers gives us something ultimate to think about each day as it is reflected in the life of a Dominic or a Catherine Labouré."
-Fr. James Schall, S.J., Georgetown University
