In a series of short meditations of a few pages each, Father Canals presents in simple and clear phrases a practical way to deal with the key points of common spiritual struggle. Topics such as the need to pray, to overcome temptation, to handle humiliations, to find serenity, for example, are laid out from the perspective of everyday life. The book can be started almost anywhere. Each chapter is a self-contained unit that provides inspiration and encouragement.
Throughout this book the author reflects the insights of Blessed Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, the Founder of Opus dei, who spread throughout the world the conviction that holiness must be sought in the midst of daily life.
