Chris Gleeson has updated and added new material to his wonderful first editionof this book. As well as the eight Stars, we now have four Canopies, each of them aligning with one of the four Weeks of the Spiritual Exercises of St Igantius.
For more than twenty years, Chris Gleeson was at the head of two Jesuit school communities, and called upon to present numerous public speeches, homilies and reflections, spoken and written. Always, dotted among these commentaries, were qiotations from many sources. He has put together a collection of these 'nuggets of wisdom', as he calls them.
An inspiring collection of quotations, extracts, poems and aphorisms, illuminated by the author's reflections and anecdotes. 'A gem on every page and a definite resource if you enjoy pertinent stories and wisdom of the ages. For parents and teenagers themselves, it offers encouragement and inspiration'.
