Retreat master Christopher Collins introduces a powerful approach to both the Sacred Heart devotion and classic Ignatian spirituality. 

In the tradition of Michael Gaitley’s bestselling 33 Days to Morning Glory, Three Moments of the Day presents a classic Catholic tradition in a way that is fresh and compelling. Jesuit retreat master Christopher Collins introduces three simple, yet powerful prayer habits that are at the foundation of both the Sacred Heart devotion and Ignatian spirituality and that assist the reader in turning intentionally toward the Sacred Heart of Christ.

In Three Moments of the Day, Collins guides readers through the morning offering, evening reflection, and how to ponder the gift of the Eucharist throughout the day.

Father Collins shows us how we can meet this challenge in an elegant and practical introduction to the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network. Three Moments of the Day is nourishment for the soul, a welcome companion on the journey of faith."
