Editorial Reviews


"In this humble, graceful treatise on love and friendship, Fr. Lauenstein deftly embroiders the fabric of Scripture and the Church Fathers with many insightful anecdotes and illustrations from his own long experience, showing how anyone--yourself included--can become clothed in holiness." --Patrick Madrid, Author, Life Lessons: Fifty Things I Learned in My First Fifty Years

"Filled with wisdom and anecdotes, this is a wonderful and unique book on holiness. With quotes from Aristotle, G.|K. Chesterton, John Paul II, and many others this profound yet very readable and practical work presents beautiful reflections on the invitation to deep friendship with God. I highly recommend it!" --Vinny Flynn, Author, 7 Secrets of Divine Mercy

"After examining the nature of authentic human friendship, Fr. Lauenstein uncovers many important parallels to our relationship with God, and concludes that the heart of holiness lies in an intimate relationship of love that is able to converse easily and often with God."
-- Fr. Dennis J. Billy, C.Ss.R., St. Charles Borromeo Seminary

"This book is a great read to help us encounter the unconditional love of God, and develop a deeper and lasting friendship with Jesus Christ."

-- Sr. Susan Fischer, O.S.F., Redemptorist Retreat Center
