Reviews - What do customers think about Mercy Flows: Reflections Of A Married Priest?
Heartfelt...humorous, serious, and inspiring Nov 10, 2006
Father Rod is an amazing man. I have always enjoyed his preaching and have always walked away with something to ponder or use to improve my spiritual life or my life in general.
This book takes normal every day events and presents them in a way that mirrors the spiritual life. It provides points to ponder at the end of each chapter and also a prayer to help meditate upon.
I truly enjoyed this novel. I'm almost embarassed because as Father Rod says in this book it has always been sort of embarassing for him to be introduced or referred to as "the married priest." I'm sure I've done that on more then one occassion.
If you love life and every day events presented in a way that it truly ties into Scripture...this is a book for you.
Thank you, Father Rod. I enjoyed it tremendously!
A Review of Mercy Flows Feb 28, 2006
Mercy Flows does much to demystify the life of a married priest. Full of insightful observations about not only the priesthood, but also family life, Fr Rod Damico reveals the man behind the collar as all too human and exceedingly compassionate. But it is the underlying humor of this book that draws the reader in and compells her to keep on reading...a humor that will leave one chuckling over one of Fr. Rod's stories long after the initial belly laughs have tapered off. This useful and engrossing little book does much to encourage the spiritual in all of us--since the author has such a tremendous understanding the human condition, and so joyfully celebrates the bounty of God's generous and divine mercy. Fr. Rod is a talented storyteller...I so enjoyed spending time with him. You will, too.
Entertaining and thought-provoking! Aug 19, 2005
Fr. Rod Damico's book Mercy Flows gives a refreshingly honest glimse into the author's most meaningful memories. This collection of short stories provides both humor and insite. The book has the power to provoke the reader's personal memories and encourages spiritual reflection.
