by Father John Bartunek, LC
Daily Meditation...keeps your faith lively, supple, and relevant. It irrigates the soil of your soul, making your life more fruitful and continually opening up new vistas along the path to spiritual maturity.
Now, Father John Bartunek, author of Inside the Passion, has created an extensive Christ-centered resource to serve as a daily meditation companion. The Better Part is meant to be a catalyst to personalize your times of prayer and meditation, enabling you to follow the Holy Spirit's lead more readily. This excellent commentary on the Four Gospels contains four different meditations for each Gospel reading. Each unit consists of five parts: a passage from the Gospels and a four-part commentary based on the same four themes throughout the book: Christ the Lord, Christ the Teacher, Christ the Friend, and Christ in My Life.
All four Gospels are contained and commented upon in their entirety. This structure is substantive, meditative, and flexible. Truly, this is a book for a lifetime! The back of the book also contains a lectionary cycle for Sundays, Solemnities, and major feasts throughout the year. This daily prayer book is perfect for a holy hour, and different reflection questions are in every daily meditation for journaling or a small-group discussion.
