Congratulations to Arthur Howells and BRF for producing a book which encapsulates what I knew of Br Ramon SSF. I really appreciate the way the author has blended the story of Ramon's life with extracts from Ramon's own words. And the thematic extracts from his writings provide material for individual or group reflection. Personally, I will be using the book for my daily spiritual reading, as a 'starter' for prayer. Thanks for the publication of this book which I am sure will do a lot to help keep Ramon's teaching alive.
