Visionary Wisdom for Daily Living

In A Year with the Mystics, popular National Review journalist and commentator Kathryn Jean Lopez offers readers a tour of the magnificent variety of mystical writing in the heart of the Church, featuring reflections from both household and contemporary names like Saint John Paul II, Mother Teresa and Edith Stein, as well as titanic historic figures such as St. Catherine of Siena and John of the Cross. The words of these holy men and women of prayer are presented in accessible doses ideal for daily prayer amidst the seemingly all-consuming busy-ness of life.

With the small commitment of a few minutes a day to prayer with mystic saints and other holy ones, you will be making time for communication and peace in the heart of the Trinity. Your faith will grow and you will see that the life of a contemplative in the world can be yours; it can become for you the air you breathe and a wellspring of renewal in your life as a Catholic, rooted in the sacraments.

Beautiful gift edition, with two-tone ultra soft leather-like cover, ribbon marker, gilt page edges, and designed interior pages. 373 pages, 5-3/4" x 8-3/8".
