In this comforting, enlightening episode, Fr. John Horgan introduces us to “a unique, marvelous relationship” which is our birthright: an angel guardian God has named and chosen to be our companion and spiritual elder brother throughout our eternal journey. This spiritual friendship, Fr. Horgan emphasizes throughout his interview with EWTN Bookmark host Doug Keck, ushers us into the deep intimacy that Our Lord speaks of in John 15:15: “I no longer call you servants, but friends.” Angels at Our Side: Understanding Their Power in Our Souls and the World explains more fully than any other text of its kind, how to enter into prayer and communion with Christ through a friendship with our holy angel.

EWTN Publishing editor Brandon McGinley joins EWTN Bookmark host Doug Keck to present Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski’s timeless classic, Sanctify Your Daily Life: How to Transform Work into a Source of Strength, Holiness, and Joy. Although written in Communist-domineered post-World War II Poland, the Cardinal’s teachings undoubtedly influenced young Karol Wojtyla, now St. John Paul II, in their emphasis on the ennobling aspect of work. McGinley finds the most fascinating aspect of Sanctify Your Daily Life to be its absolute insistence on the indissoluble integration of our spiritual and our working lives. Highly accessible to all of us, and highly recommended, Doug observes.
Anthony DeStefano and award-winning illustrator Richard Cowdrey once again produce a beautiful children’s book with a message for all. As Anthony tells host Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark, The Miracle of the Bread, the Fish, and the Boy is about trusting God with all you have. Children learn an important lesson from DeStefano‘s adaptation of the feeding of the 5,000 with five loaves of bread and two fish: in Jesus’ hands, your small contribution will be multiplied many times over, for the glory of His Kingdom. Cowdrey‘s colorful illustrations are instant pleasers, no matter what the age.

Although the book is about Gospel women, men and teenagers will particularly enjoy the book for the understanding it brings to all facets of the female personality.
