A Year with the Church Fathers


Today, just as two thousand years ago, we fight anger, pride, lust, spiritual sloth. Now, as then, we strive to be more diligent in prayer, more faithful to the commandments, more patient and charitable toward others and, in our time, no less than in the earliest centuries of Christianity, we need wise guidance to direct us on the road to holiness. In A Year with the Church Fathers, popular Patristics expert Mike Aquilina gathers the wisest, most practical teachings and exhortations from the Fathers of the Church, and presents them in a format perfect for daily meditation and inspiration. Learn to humbly accept correction from St. Clement of Rome; let Tertullian teach you how to clear your mind before prayer; read St. Gregory the Great and deepen your love for the Eucharist; be refreshed by St. John Chrysostom's counsel; learn the way to moderation and self-control with St. John Cassian. This book is different from a study guide and more than a collection of pious passages. It is a year-long retreat that, in just a few minutes every day, will lead you on a cycle of contemplation, prayer, resolution, and spiritual growth that is guaranteed to bring you closer to God and His truth. This beautiful gift edition has a two-tone, ultra soft cover, ribbon marker, and designed interior pages. Softcover; published by Saint Benedict Press.
