Paperback; 72 pages; 2009
Well-known author Robert F. Morneau helps readers to focus on their relationships to others and thereby build up a better society. He offers a month worth of daily reflections on simplicity, gentleness, humility, and friendship. Each week opens with a song or hymn, followed by passages for meditation from a variety of poets, novelists, philosophers, and theologians. Each day's entry concludes with a question and short prayer. In the words of Raissa Maritain, Tomorrow will bring a good morning if today we strive to live virtuously! Morneau provides reflections on a diverse range of authors, including Henri Nouwen, Francis de Sales, Mohandas Gandhi, Thomas Merton, Thomas Keating, Jessica Powers, Evelyn Underhill, Albert Schweitzer, and many others.
