Meet this monumental Church figure and saint through this unique collection of encouraging words, thoughtful meditations, and his saintly approach to prayer.

About this Book:

With amazing courage Pope Paul VI faced hardship in his papacy and held steadfast to hope, leading the Church through some of the most turbulent times in recent history. This precious keepsake book underlines his faith, his strength of character in following God's will, and his steady leadership during a formative time for the Church. Compiled on the occasion of his canonization, this pocket-size volume provides readers with an introduction to this often-misunderstood pope whose words and actions have proven to be bold and prophetic for those who wish to follow the way of the Lord. Taken from a wide array of his talks with people from around the world, they highlight what it means to be a disciple today.

The compiler, Mary Leonora Wilson, FSP, entered the Daughters of St. Paul on the same day Pope Paul VI was crowned as pontiff. Her special connection and love for the saint is evident in the care taken to choose those words of the holy father's that would most inspire all those who seek God, especially those who face darkness, fear, or seemingly insurmountable odds. With themes on the cross, courage, joy, Mary as Mother, and the Eucharist, readers will be delighted to discover a wealth of wisdom for their own path today. The book also includes a wonderful collection of prayers from the new saint, as well as original prayers from the compiler paired with each meditation, and a brief contemporary biography.

Reviews
Katherine Bogner says...
With his recent Canonization, Pope St. Paul VI is getting a little more attention, and rightly so. His teachings on family and sexuality during his papacy 40 years ago are proving prophetic and are needed more than ever. This book was a perfect introduction to get to know him better, and I thoroughly enjoyed and learned from it. The book includes a brief biography at the beginning and then breaks into themed chapters where excerpts of his writing on various topics have been assembled in readable lengths. The selections are from various homilies, addresses, and writings and cover topics like Mary, suffering, and the Eucharist. I think that it would be a great book to pick up for inspiration from a wise and influential leader, and would be easy to use as a springboard for prayer. Pauline Books & Media provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
