A sharp consciousness of the Liturgy, the psalter, the religious life, and of the great mysteries of the Faith suffuses these utterances. One is awakened by the demanding syntax, the fresh vocabulary, and the curious focus (on everything from a turtle's eye to a Ph. D. examination to the Stations of the Cross). A book to be kept near one's breviary, one's missal, and one's Bible."- Thomas Howard, Author, Evangelical is Not Enough "Mother Mary Francis' book of spiritual poetry is organized around themes of life and Liturgy that occasion her beautiful and touching poems. For many, these poems will lead us to the core of the reality she sees in her life as reflected in the word and world of God."- Fr. James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University "Mother Mary Francis is a poet in her own right. Her life has been centered on love, sacrifice, silence and prayer. This alone explains why the harmonious music of her words has the unmistakable ring of joy, the joy that can spring only from a heart that has given everything to God." - Alice Von Hildebrand, Author, By Love Refined
