Using this book every day, or at least several times a week, along with a short time of silent prayer will likely lead a person to grow closer to Christ and to experience his life and love more deeply in their life. The reflections (along with a time of prayerful thought on them) help me to encounter Christ and grow more faithful as a Christian. This is turn has supported my desire and ability to share the good news with others in a way that flows from normal encounters in my life.
This book of reflections is compiled by a member of FOCUS, a national ministry that is very successful in bringing college-aged people into a closer relationship with Christ. Thus, there is a practical experience in the choice of the reflections and questions that brings them to the heart of the passage and to the heart of the individual.
"Jesus does not exclude anyone. Some of you, perhaps, might say to me: 'But, Father, I am certainly excluded because I am a great sinner: I have done terrible things; I have done lots of them in my life.' No, you are not excluded! Precisely for this reason, you are the favorite, because Jesus prefers sinners, always, in order to forgive them, to love them. Jesus is waiting for you to embrace you, to pardon you. Do not be afraid: he is waiting for you. ... For God, we are not numbers, we are important, indeed we are the most important thing to him; even if we are sinners, we are what is closest to his heart. ... If we - all of us - accept the Grace of Jesus Christ, he changes our heart and from sinners makes us saints. ... Jesus is all mercy, Jesus is all love ... he is The Lord of tenderness." (PP. 268, 315, 316, 343, 328.)
The Holy Father can also be very entertaining and even surprising:
"I feel like Tarzan and I feel strong" (P. 339)
"But please: never any sisters, never any priests with faces like 'chilis pickled in vinegar' - never!" (P. 300)
Really well put together. Nice short reflections that probably take a couple of minutes to read but say a lot. I'm looking forward to it being a part of my daily routine.
