What Is Your Favorite Book by Father Benedict Groeschel?

When I visited New Advent this morning for my daily dose of Catholic news and commentary, I saw that Fr. Benedict Groeschel died last night; very appropriately on the vigil of St. Francis.

From the announcement:

The Catholic Church and the Franciscan family lost a giant today. This moment is one that finds the Community of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFR) with mixed emotions, as we are deeply saddened by the loss of Fr. Benedict but also relieved that God has set him free from the physical and mental suffering he has experienced over the past decade.

The world knew Father Benedict as a priest, teacher, evangelist, retreat master, and a steadfast defender of and advocate for the Catholic Church that he loved so much. The members of his religious family saw all these things in him, too. But even more, we were also blessed to know him as a father who cared for each of us, a father who was always accessible when we needed him and always glad to see us when we came to visit.

Father Groeschel was a prolific writer who didn't limit himself to a single topic. He may be best known for his books on Eucharistic Adoration and spiritual growth. My favorite books of his are Rosary, Chain of Hope and Praying in the Presence of the Lord.
