Beautiful, Simple and Penetrating James D. Catonsville MD

Beautiful and simple and deeply penetrating all at the same time! The narrating of her life alongside a progression o fquotes from the diary is like a constant renewal of loving Trust in His Mercy ESPECIALLY for those who have prayerfully read through the entire Diary, praying the chaplet AND the rosary and thereby being accompanied by the Hole Mother of our Lord and His true friends to which the mysteries also witness!

3rd time reading,this time I am engaged and nearing the end.

This is well written & researched & although a very deep subject I found that w/my 3rd attempt I have been engaged. What an amazing life! As a convert to Catholicism, this image has not been a part of my life. It will take some time to work through, to see how it fits in my spiritual life.

I’ve not had a chance to read this book yet. However I am so looking forward to it as I loved her Diary, have shared it with others and finally bought it again to treasure.
