"If you're breathing and you've got two legs..."

What made the experience of listening to Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality the most enjoyable?

One can gain insights by listening for just a few minutes. If you don't have much time and still want to feel like you can benefit from a few moments here and there during the day, this book is for you.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality?

"Careful what you attribute to the Lord. Sometimes it's just a bird squawking."

What aspect of Raymond Arroyo’s performance would you have changed?

It would be nice had he used his own voice before each Mother Angelica quote to separate them more. I liked his impersonation of her in the biography because it was just little snippets, but this book is mostly Arroyo reading as her. It is just way too much. The content is what makes it all worthwhile.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing extreme. Mother Angelica is very down to earth and accessible in how she discusses faith and spirituality.

Any additional comments?

I already had the book before getting the Audible version. Hearing it brought new life to the words.

Outstanding!

What made the experience of listening to Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality the most enjoyable?

Mother's lessons are fantastic! They have been put together in a way that flows perfectly. This book can be listened to for hours or just small chunks of a few minutes. Raymond Arroyo did an excellent job editing and putting this together.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Found another narrator. I'm generally not a big fan of Raymond Arroyo, I personally think he comes off as vain and smug. While he does a good job of mimicking Mother's cadence and speech, it just doesn't sound right. The book is so good though that you quickly forget the narration and find yourself concentrating on Mother Angelica's excellent lessons.

Any additional comments?

If you are a Catholic, this may be one of the best spirituality books you'll ever read. I loved it and plan on listening to it over again on a regular basis.
