Book Find to Recommend

After years of dusting The Story of a Soul by St. Therese, I finally put the book on my daily reading/study list and was immediately hooked. Reading the book had a further bonus as St. Therese mentioned a book she said changed her life. Well, the book is still in print and age has not changed the message for today’s world. I’m only a few pages in and housework could be seriously neglected until I finish the book.

It is called “The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Live” by
Father Charles Arminjon. I found my copy of Amazon and the price was extremely reasonable for a brand new, paperback copy.
