Reviews - What do customers think about Latin Sayings for Spiritual Growth?

A Book That Flows Naturally From the Author's Pen  Jan 22, 2005
I visited St. Meinrad's Archabbey many times during Lambert Reilly's tenure as archabbot. Whenever he saw a guest walking a hallway he stopped for a quick chat. He was very approachable and humble for a man with such a heavy responsibility. He retired and returned to parish work in December, 2004.

This book is just what I would expect from him: simple, humble, approachable, and steeped in Latin. He taught Latin in his earlier days. Do not be frightened by the title. This is not a book for scholars, it is a book for laity. If you read one short devotion each day, you will probably enjoy this book.

ARCHABBOT LAMBERT REILLY IS MY UNCEL WHO I HAVE BEEN VERY CLOSE TO SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL. HE WAS ALWAYS SOMEONE I ADMIRED AND ALWAYS WAINTED TO BE LIKE. HE IS A VERY SMART AND HOLY MAN. I LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART AND I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM HIM. HIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL AND I WILL READ IT AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN. IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I HAVE SEEN HIM, AND I THANK GOD FOR ALL THE TIMES I GOT TO VISIT HIM BY PHONE. SO PLEASE READ THIS BOOK AND I HOPE IT WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART AS MUCH AS IT HAS MINE. MAY GOD BLESS.
 
A good book for those who practice lectio  Jul 16, 2002
What a FUN book...but also a useful one.

A fond introduction by the editor (a former student of the Archabbot's) leads you into pithy latin expressions which are then translated and followed by a light (very light but still insightful) meditation, and Reilly writes with a humble yet amusing style.

This is an extremely useful for those of us who practice lectio divina and who might be having some difficulty with it, as sometime happens with a discipline...a gentle way to get back to it. I highly recommend it.

 
A Lovely, Fun and Helpful little book  Jul 13, 2002
The author of this book, Archabbot Lambert Reilly, OSB, appears to be the soul of humility and he writes mediations that are light and yet provocative beneath some familiar and some unusual latin "sayings". My favorite, perhaps be cause it applies so well to me, "Profecto deliramus interdum senes" (The head grey, and no brains yet). If you're someone who wants something light and useful to read on a daily basis, but can't take the platitudes and sentimentality of some of the more popular "day to day" books, this one is for you. Thoughts on faith, hope, love, prudence, Justice and fortitude. It's well worth buying.
 
Light reading for those familiar or unfamiliar with Latin  May 17, 2001
Carpe diem - Seize the day! Mortuo leoni, etiam lepores insultant - Rabbits may pull dead lions by the beard. Operi Dei nihil praeponatur - Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God.

This short, small book is filled with common and not-so-common Latin phrases perfect for meditation. Each phrase includes an English translation and is followed by a brief commentary on the saying.

Readers will particularly enjoy the lesser-known phrases, and the encouraging words of Saints Augustine and Thomas Aquinas.

In the process not only will you learn something about your faith, but you might also pick up a little Latin.
