    1. It took me awhile to read this, because I needed to be clear-headed and able to focus to soak it all in. I usually hi-light or underscore passages that strike me as pithy or amazing. Since this book is a conversation between God and St. Catherine of Sienna, with God doing most of the talking, I wanted to be paying close attention. There is a lot to take in and many of the concepts were new to me, so it was no easy read, but well worth it because you feel He is warmly talking directly to you. Nee [...]


    2. An excellent, excellent read. One of the best books in my collection and I find it hard to part with it when I lend it to friends.
