These meditations are a magnificent gift .
Hear Joseph Ratzinger proclaim a deep religious fortitude with a sparkling intelligence.
I listened carefully to Ratzinger as Pope Benedict XVI for many years and am grateful that this resource allows me to make him part of my daily prayers.
When Defillipis speaks, he embodies these meditations so that listening every day is to have Benedict XVI standing with me leading the prayer.

The book is well indexed and begins with a valuable introduction to Ratzinger and Benedict XVI. Thanks to all at Saint Luke productions and Ignatius press for making this available
