“They are things that I whisper in your ear, as a friend, as a brother, as a father… so that some thought may arise and strike you: and so your life will improve and you will set out along ways of prayer and of Love.” These opening words set the whole tone of this book, which is among the top bestsellers in modern spiritual writing. To men and women at work, in their family and friendships, in the life of society, The Way offers a starting point for a prayer which finds Christ in all the experience of living. “Monsignor Escriva has written something more than a masterpiece; he has written straight from the heart, and straight to the heart go the short paragraphs which make up The Way.”
