Editorial Reviews

Andrew Apostoli
"At this time when Pope John Paul II is calling upon all the faithful to build "a civilization of love" to counter the prevalent "culture of death", Fr. Lovasik's book on kindness will prove to be a powerful help for achieving that goal. It clearly shows that kindness is love put into practice, and traces how kindness must begin in our thoughts, be communicated in our words and reach its fullest expression in our daily actions. This book is made to order for anyone seriously wanting to respond to the present movement of the Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth for Christ!"
Kenneth Baker, S.J.
"Supremely practical. If you would like to improve your relations with others and so lead a more happy and peaceful life, get this book and read it carefully."

    It changed the way I live

    This book completely changed me. After reading it I found it difficult to say a mean word because I realize it would offend God. It is hard for me to explain, but since I read this book I smile more, pray more and enjoy being kind because it is pleasing to God. This book brought me closer to Him. I have always wanted that but it never seemed to happened. This book put God first and foremost in my mind and my life. And even though I have some areas of difficulties in my life, this book and my new close relationship with God has brought me such a wonderful feeling of peace and happiness. You will love this book. You will treat people better and they in turn will treat you better, and you will get closer to Our Lord.

    I Also Recommend:

    This book is easy to read and great for everyone.

    This has been my all time favorite book. I am an avid reader and believe it is an easy read. I found it to be so helpful that I give it out as gifts as often as possible. I want everyone in the world to have a copy in their hands. I use it as a guide to my life. The original was written years ago but speaks to us in modern times and has prompted me to learn more. I am a better person and desire goodness for other people. I think everyone of every age would enjoy reading this book.
