“In prayer there are joys that cannot be compared with any other joy, and at the same time prayer is a constant struggle. But in either case we do not do it alone: we pray as members of a great praying communityand it is much larger than we can suspectand we do not struggle alone to pray. Many invisible helpersin heaven and here on earthare with us and assist us.” Christoph Cardinal Schönborn
“Deserves wide circulation. No one is better qualified than Schönborn to write on how the Catechism is to be lived. An indispensable companion to the Catechism.” Fr. John Hardon, S.J., Author, A Treasury of Catholic Wisdom
