“Holiness is a Beautiful Struggle.” – Mother Angelica

My favorite of Raymond Arroyo’s books is “Mother Angelica’s Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality.”   It’s one of those books that as I read it now, can understand better what I experienced when I first returned to God twelve years ago.  My hope is that others will stumble upon this book and come to befriend Jesus through Mother’s miraculous works; will come to know Him on a deeper level through the Wisdom He gave her; will pick up the books waiting on their e-reader or bookshelves and devour them for the miracles they hold; for the miracles they are.  There are miracles all around us if we just open our eyes.  So if you’re looking for a miracle, here’s an easy one.

Since her death this past Easter Sunday, many of us are taking a closer look at Mother through her writings.  For me, this book is just a start…

“A Christian does not strain after God the way one seeks a lost object, he merely becomes more and more aware of what he already possesses.”  – Mother Angelica
