Publisher's Summary

The founder of the world's largest religious media empire shares her beloved wit and down-to-earth spirituality in Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures. Editor Raymond Arroyo draws on hundreds of never-before-released private lessons to present the renowned nun's definitive take on the Good Book. Angelica provides readers with guided meditations and probing personal questions, and unearths an often-overlooked practical spirituality. She doesn't just explain the stories, she relates them to our daily lives, helping even those who've never opened the Bible appreciate its power and life-altering lessons. The apostles Paul (the little shrimp), Peter (that great bungler), and all the characters of the scriptures are suddenly human again, complete with their foibles and triumphs. Here is the Greatest Story, newly told as only Mother Angelica can. The Bible and you will never be the same.

Meditation at its best!!!

If you are serious about increasing your knowledge of scriptures and relationship with the Lord, i.e. become a saint, this audiobook will help you! This is the best book of meditation I have ever hear (or read). The woman who reads the book is very good at imitating mother angelica voice, including her sense of humor. Highly recommended. God Bless you Mother Angelica!!!

Highly recommended

This was a wonderful book to listen to for spiritual growth. It also made me laugh. The narrator was great at bringing out Mother Angelica’s sense of humor and wisdom. I felt like I was listening to Mother Angelica herself! I highly recommend this book and all of Raymond Arroyo’s books about Mother Angelica!

A fresh approach to Scripture that you can apply

Would you listen to Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures again? Why?

Yes. Mother's unique and down-to-earth style made learning about Holy Scripture in this a very easy way to which I could relate. I especially enjoyed Mother Angelica's views on the saints and how we can identify with their humanity. There is so much knowledge here, that relistening is a must.

Awful

I listened for about an hour. It was an hour of pain and misery. What a waste of a credit!

Geeze!
