Read it slowly, deeply, and often. Fr. Faber will have you falling in love with Jesus day after day, and he'll have you viewing the world from Our Lord's perspective--taking "His side" in everything. My dog-eared copy has a permanent place next to my bed, and I expect it always will. Don't hesitate. Get it now!

ALL FOR JESUS-The Easy Ways of Divine Love. Fr. Frederick William Faber. Every catechism student should remember learning that God made us to know, to love and to serve Him. Because we cannot serve Him without first loving Him, and we cannot love Him without first knowing Him, Fr. Faber develops several extremely powerful motives for our loving God, and then offers a number of very creative ways in which we can best serve God out of love, rather than just out of duty. Fr. Faber says "Nothing is easy, which we are not happy about while we are doing." He then shows how to make the service of God easy by doing all for love of God. "I want to beguile you into serving Jesus out of love," says Fr. Faber, "for everything comes easy to love." One of this famous convert/priest's greatest books written precisely to help us save our souls by doing ALL for God out of love for God - which is by far the easiest way of salvation! Comprehensive inspirational insights! 308pp. PB. Imprimatur.

This is a book to find a quiet moment in order to read and pray. It is a book that nourishes the spirit with chapters such as: Intercessory Prayer; Sympathy with Jesus, Praise and Desire, or the Riches of Poverty. I would recommend it highly, especially if one is going on retreat.

Fr. Faber writes about prayer development, the essential elements of Catholic life and advises how to bring these into everyday life.
His message, although written a long time ago, resonates and echoes much of what our Pope Francis says. A very accessible book of spiritual guidance and direction.
