I was given one of the volumes of In Conversation with God within the first month of my decision to join the Church over 5 years ago.  I have been reading these treasures almost every day since that time and they have had a profound effect on my Catholic faith.  There is a 3-4 page meditation each day based on the scripture for that day’s Mass.  Francis Fernandez is a brilliant writer and I strongly recommend making his books part of your daily reading.

From the publisher: Sceptre Publishing

This seven-volume set gives you brief (five to six pages) meditations for every day of the Church’s entire liturgical calendar, including feast days and each of the three cycles of Ordinary Time on Sundays. Author Francis Fernandez-Carvajal makes generous use of the writings of the great saints as he brings you focused and moving meditations on themes taken from the Mass readings for that day, the liturgical season, and more. This work is rich and extensive enough to serve as your spiritual reading for a lifetime, as it helps you relate the particulars of the message of Christ to the ordinary circumstances of your day. Each volume is small enough for you to carry it to Adoration or some other suitable place for meditation.
