Give This One Away Aug 6, 2007
Of the many hundreds of books I have read, only a few get on my "Give This One Away" list. It's my list of books I give to friends, relatives, and people I just meet who I feel could benefit from one of the books I prize. This book falls into my category of books which will help those in despair.
Many people suffer differing levels of despair -- a giving up. For some, it's on their marriage, their job, or their friends. For some it is on life or happiness in general. For some it is on the Catholic Church, or God Himself. There are few books I find which can consistently "speak" to those in despair. On many levels, on many topics, Mother Angelica's book does the trick. Certainly it is the Holy Spirit working through her to touch hearts. Something I could never do on my own. So, for the people who enter my life and tell me of their despairs, I will give a copy of this book. Then we'll let God do the rest.
It's the least I could do for Him, and for them.
YOU NEED THIS BOOK! Apr 10, 2007
Most of us at one time or another, no matter the depth (or lack thereof) of our faith has asked the questions she answers in this book. Why am I here? What does God want from me? Why does God allow suffering? These and many more have been asked by many. I joined the Catholic Church 7 years ago and have been blessed beyond belief! Don't get me wrong, my life is far from perfect, I have health problems, debt problems and the other little things that drive us all crazy, BUT, I have been blessed with a wonderful family, the most awesome husband who I'm still crazy in love with, but most of all, the grace to see the beauty of the FAITH. I've grown deeper in my faith and closer to God in my 7 years as a Catholic than I ever did in my 30 years as a Protestant. This isn't a slam of Protestantism; I have no quarrel with anyone who claims Jesus Christ as their savior. However, the Church is filled with spiritual riches and many wonderful teachers. You'll enjoy Mother Angelica's take on life and her great stories of real people that God has put her in contact with. She may be a nun, but she's very relatable. If you're looking for a "magic pill" to cure all your ills, or to climb to the top of a tall mountain to find the "answer of life" from a wise holy man, this isn't it. To the reviewer who slammed this book and Mother by asking "is is really that cut and dried?" I say, Yes, it is that simple. We make things more difficult than they need to be and as Mother points out, it is often because we suffer from the sin of pride. We are constantly focused on ourselves.. ME, ME, ME... how does this affect ME? What's in it for ME? Take the focus off of yourself and put it on the ONE who loved you SO much that he created you and sent His only son to die for YOU! It IS simple, but you simply have to do it.
Timeless wisdom from M. Angelica Mar 9, 2006
What can I say that hasn't already been said? If for no other reason, read this book for her chapter all about suffering. As Catholics we sometimes take for granted that Holy Mother Church teaches us that suffering can be redemptive, and non-catholics will benefit from Mother Angelica's straight forward explination......
I have loved Mother Angelica for years and am convinced that this remarkable nun will one day be raised to the altar and be cannonized!!!!! I LOVE THIS BOOK!
Great book from the great communicator Mar 8, 2001
Mother Angelica is truly a great communicator. I love the way she explains in simple terms how to bring God into everything. The examples she uses of her conversations with people are excellent!
She's great, her EWTN show is great, and her message is the greatest thing of all---the Truth!
Is it really that cut and dried? Feb 4, 2001
Mother Angelica's "answers" are often too simplistic or general to be applied to the average person's life. In this book, she provides no more insight than she does on her show. Instead, like her show, she focuses on moral proclivities and proselytization. This isn't very helpful for the average sinner. If you want to study for the Christian exam, the answer book has already been written.
