    “This work will be a great resource for both laymen and religious in their personal lives as well as in their individual ministries. It will be great for use as a spiritual tool for prayer and reflection, not only in Holy Cross ministries, but in any Catholic institution that chooses to use it. I have already found several applications in which we will use it at Notre Dame High School.”
