“I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.” — St. Francis of Assisi

In this palm-sized book of insight and inspiration, Assaf offers readers bite-sized nuggets from saints (famous and obscure) to guide, comfort, and instruct. The wisdom spans thousands of years and is rooted in Christian philosophy dating back through the history of the Catholic Church.Yet, at times, it seems extraordinarily modern (“Maintain a spirit of peace and you’ll save a thousand souls.” — St. Seraphim of Sarov)

It’s a perfect book for daily meditation. It can also be used as guidance in relation to a current dilemma by opening it to a random page and listening for the insight in the selection. Let customers know that while the language is often clearly Judeo-Christian, the wisdom is of the ages.
