As I wrap up my "book week" review, I thought it would be appropriate to come "full circle".
While reading Story of a Soul, The Autobiography of St. Therese, I was introduced to the spiritual work, The Imitation of Christ.
Authored by Thomas a Kempis, around 1441,"the work is a manual of devotion intended to assist the soul with its pursuit of holiness and communion with God." (Wikipedia) It is comprised of four books with various chapters in each book. It is a deep read and one appropriate to share on this 1st Friday of the month.
Each book holds beautiful suggestions to living a more Christ-centered life.
I hope that you enjoyed a taste of the reading that has been on my bedside table of late! While deeply spiritual, it has encouraged in me a desire to lead a more simpler, holier, life.
Wishing you a peaceful weekend and blessed start to your month of April,
