Like Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, for whose Cause of Beatification and Canonization he has labored, Monsignor Richard Soseman has sought to use modern means of communication in the service of the new evangelization. In these reflections, originally written as web logs, he draws on his experiences as a priest both in rural Illinois and in Rome to convey the truths of the Catholic faith in an accessible and appealing manner. May those who read the present collection of reflections be inspired and encouraged in the daily living of the Catholic faith. --Raymond Cardinal Burke
Visiting Rome many times over the years, mostly for church business, I have come to appreciate the flood of meditations and thoughts that surface from walking the streets of the eternal city and touring its religious and secular monuments. Monsignor Richard Soseman captures this phenomenon in a number of reflections that blend the deepest religious stirrings of the heart with personal experience and silent reflection that can serve to feed your own journey towards God by way of the paths of holy men and women who have smoothed the pavement for us. --Bishop Joseph N. Perry, Archdiocese of Chicago

Don't pass up this wonderful collection which can be read in order, or out of sequence without any loss. The brevity of these essays make them suitable for reading at any time of the day but may be most valuable as a morning offering or as an evening thanksgiving to the God who created so vast a canvas for Msgr Soseman to paint on with enthsuasm, warmth and joy. As another reviewer has said here, it seems as if he is speaking directly to readers. I'd further describe this books as an enjoyable conversation with a friend sitting in a comfortaable armchair across a cozy study on a rainy night, with a fire on the hearth and a warming libation in your hand.
Thank you, Msgr Soseman, for your spiritual pick-me-up!
