This is the fifth book in the series -and though like a mother I can’t say I like one child better than the other – this one is very special. Maybe because the topic of prayer, our personal connection to God and His personal connection back to us is just plain WOW!
Maybe its the cartoons. I love cartoons and for the first time, I found some wonderful ones that sort of just “say it” as to prayer and how powerful it can be for us.
And maybe, its just that with each book, I learn a little more how to do things better. The older I get the more I look for verification that older and wiser is a good thing.
This is the very first book in the series – and far away still our best seller. Why? My personal opinion is that I had so many people praying rosaries for this book – and the rosary as a form of prayer – next to the Eucharist – just gets results! I still pray the rosary every day for the power and blessing I find through it – no I don’t always get what I ask for – not always – but a whole lot of times I do! This book did more to convince me of the power of the rosary than anything else except perhaps for Pope John Paul’s Encyclical on the rosary which is included in full in this book. The rosary is a powerful, powerful form of prayer – and you will be amazed when you read these stories. Amazed, uplifted and encouraged to keep praying the rosary.
Nothing can bring us closer to God than admitting we need Him in our lives. Try as we might, we just keep making mistakes, saying the wrong things at the wrong time and doing things that we are sorry for afterwards. This book doesn’t concentate on our faults and failings but rather on the immense love and mercy God. Thse are very powerful stories that will change your life. Really. You have no idea how powerful this sacrament can be until you read some of these amazing stories. I loved doing this book. It totally changed my understanding of this sacrament.
Also available is the Workbook. I know it sounds weird to have a workbook for reconciliation.. .but it works! I am still using mine.
