I am so in love with this book. I forgot it one Sunday and I was devastated - it has changed the way I approach the mass! I also just really love beautiful books, and this book is gorgeous. Thank you so much for this, I am so happy that I found it!

This book has been a blessing! I truly have never been more engaged in mass than I am in this season. I read before mass and feel prepared and engaged for a change! Not just checking it off my list each week. My second favorite part is focusing on my weeks intention going forth. In 2018 to be engaged, present, and active with my faith is a direct result of this beautiful book. THANK YOU!!!!

I ordered the journal based on a recommendation of a few friends who loved it from my bible study, and I am not disappointed. It is beautifully crafted and so helpful in preparing for and reflecting after mass. I am so excited to use this journal for the remainder of the year!

Thanks for ESS! I use it each week as I prepare for my homilies. I love that there is so much space to write and take notes and draw pictures and circle things and put arrows...I appreciate the design and the simplicity and Iā€™m looking forward to the 2018-19 version.
