Still reading this book, which is really a series of meditations on the Gospels. Guardini's meditations are wonderfully illuminating and quite good start points for reflection and contemplation. Dorothy Day mentioned Guardini quite a bit, he was an author from whose work she seemed to draw sustenance, which is one reason I began reading him. The second reason is that our former parish priest recommended a number of spiritual books to us at one time and I found those I knew were favorites of mine and those I didn't know but have since read to be informative, and often good material for reflection and prayer.

This is one of the first books recommended by a spiritual director priest--one along the way. While he was not meant to last long, the book certainly was! It was first introduction to Msgr. Romano Guardini, and one for which to be ever-grateful. The spiritual instruction given as related to Our Lord's teachings and life are worthwhile for all souls to absorb in Msgr. Guardini's very accessible style. ( )

First words
Wenn damals in Kapharnaum oder Jerusalem einer den Herrn gefragt hätte: Wer bist Du? Wer sind deine Eltern? Aus welchem Geschlechte kommst Du? -- so hätte Er antworten können wie im achten Kapitel des Johannesevangeliums: Ehe denn Abraham ward, bin Ich."
A chi gli avesse chiesto, in quei giorni, poniamo a Cafarnao o a Gerusalemme: Chi dei tu? Chi sono i tuoi parenti? - il Signore avrebbe potuto rispondere come nel Vangelo secondo Giovanni: "Io sono da prima che fosse nato Abramo" (VIII 58) oppure, come nel Vangelo secondo Luca, essere egli il Messia "del casato e famiglia di Davide" (II 4). Come principiano le narrazioni evangeliche circa la vita di quel Gesù di Nazareth, che è il Cristo, l'unto del Signore?

Monsignor Guardini...has written more than just a life of Jesus. He places that life in the context of history and shows how the teachings of Jesus are related to the whole body of church doctrine and practice. --The New York Times
