Thank you

The readings each day are such a joy that is bringing me closer to Jesus a d understanding Saint Faustina. I am in a weekly conference call with friends and was feeling so lost. My friends have more knowledge and understanding of the scriptures than I do. So when they share I’m thinking “oh my, where did that thought come from, are we reading the same thing”. I do share and always say thank you for enlightening me. They are very understanding and tell me we are all learning. So thank you for lifting this feeling of being lost in this adventure in getting closer to Jesus. Cathy

I plan to re-read the beautiful writings every year

Amazing...can’t get enough!

I started this late but I am compelled to keep listening for many of the recorded days in a row. I will catch up shortly because I am compelled to keep going to the next recording. It will be a little hard when I catch up and only get 5-8 minutes a day. The reading feeds my soul and is probably better than reading it myself because of Father’s great reflections which make the diary even richer. Thank you!

Very helpful especially to a person that didn’t read the whole bible yet. Thank you very much, Father Mike. May God continue to bless you and keep you. The more I love reading the Bible. Made me more aware of my actions.
