“Reiser’s Ramblings” is a collection of daily and weekly meditations and devotions. It includes daily reflections from the best columns written over the past three decades by Fr. Bernard Reiser, former pastor of Epiphany Parish in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. In the book, find Fr. Reiser’s take on everyday topics such as family, kindness, gratitude, prayer, helping others, and staying focused on what’s important in life. Fr. Reiser’s essays are rich in symbolism, wise in understanding of human nature, and fruitful in explicating the word of God.
Fr. Reiser brought together a wonderful collection of “ramblings” that all of us can take home and take to heart. Father was a master in the art of spiritual storytelling; he engaged, entertained, and challenged with undeniable hope. He was a gift and he shared it generously in this lovely book. Included are stories with the deep conviction that our human journey and our spiritual journey are intrinsically linked. He shared observations that are sometimes so wondrously obvious and visible, and he did it in a way that feels like you’re hearing from a close friend.
