An Easy Way to Become a Saint - September 17

Continued from yesterday...

Chapter 8. Reading

...Books that we recommend

All about the Angels
This book on the Angels comes at a most opportune moment, for no better remedy can be found for the suffering in the world at the present moment than the all-powerful protection of God's Angels.

The Angels are our best friends, and you tell your readers all about them in a way so full and interesting that your book will awaken a great love and confidence in these glorious Princes of Heaven. In return they will obtain for us many graces and deliver us from great evils.
Accept my warmest thanks for your precious book on the Angels. It is most interesting and opportune. Give us more books of this kind, which will bring comfort, truth and consolation to all.
All About the Angels is a book so full of charm and delight that it is with a feeling of regret we reach the last page and find that there is nothing more to read.

The Catholic Voice says:
Written with the object of spreading a devotion largely unknown even among good practicing Catholics, this book on the Angels introduces us to new and startling revelations about the great power and love for us of those glorious beings.

Supported by facts and irrefutable proofs, the book reads like a fairy tale.

It is a book that will charm all, priests and people young and old.

It is certainly one of the most beautiful books on the Angels yet published.

Above all, this book on the Angels does all who read it one incalculably great benefit; it makes them know and love their Angel Guardian, whom so many ignore as if he did not exist! Yet he is their most loving, most powerful, dearest friend. He has done them countless favours, for which they have never thanked him! He will do them still greater favours if they only know and love him. They want happiness; he will make them happy."
