Words of Wisdom, by Fr. Warren J. Rouse, OFM
198 pages paperback edition The best of Fr. Warren's inspirational messages that were previously published in the Way of St. Francis Magazine.
When I began to read Fr. Rouse’s meditations, I found myself saying out loud: “Who is this author? This cannot be the Warren Rouse I know. All the years we were teaching at the University of San Diego, he never followed my constant advice: ‘ You should publish your articles in a book.’” I am convinced that they would be very well received by the laity, parish priests and all the clergy of whatever Christian faith. These reflections hit people where they live and are not abstract or vague. I was delighted to re-read some of his writings and found them to be very much alive and filled with wisdom. This book offers 51 of his articles. I have only one question for Fr. Rouse: “You have given us 51 out of your collection. When do we get to read the remaining 50?”
