This two volume work is a carefully prepared devotional book for Catholic readers. The order of the book follows the liturgical year, Volume I being designed for use from Advent to Easter and Volume II from Trinity Sunday to Advent. Some of the meditations are on doctrinal subjects, others on scripture passages, still others on various practical programs for action by Catholics. All have some suggestions as to how to make the use of each meditation more meaningful. This devotional book would seem to be of the greatest value to those well grounded in the Catholic faith who need to have some of its teachings clarified, some of its doctrines interpreted and above all to have their own faith strengthened by directed prayer and meditation.
