These sparkling essays on a variety of interesting subjects are written with insight and wit by an author widely recognized as one of the finest masters of English prose in the Catholic Church today. Fr. George Rutler touches upon philosophy, theology, history, biography, art, travel, politics, and more as he shows Christ making himself known to us in the events of daily life.
A parish priest in New York City, Fr. Rutler has seen, and been edified by, the comings and goings of countless souls. He shows that they, and indeed all of us, are like the men on the road to Emmaus—common pedestrians walking, often unknowingly, with Christ, who explains the meaning of things and sets their hearts aflame.
