Ludwig Monti
WALKING IN THE LIGHT OF LIFE
Biblical Breviary
Preface by Card. Gianfranco Ravasi

«We have in our hands these brief meditations which in themselves can only occupy a few minutes of the day. Yet they are destined to leave a trace in the spirit, to introduce a ferment in our thinking and acting, to produce a sort of vaccine against superficiality, banality, commonplace» (Card. Ravasi in the Preface). Referring to the fortunate tradition of the “breviary”, Ludwig Monti, “the finest interpreter of the Bible”, as Card. Ravasi defines him, offers us in this text, for each day of the year, a short biblical passage, from Genesis to the Apocalypse, followed by a brief meditation, to open roads and stimulate reflections, to guide our journey in the light of life, as the title states, taken from Ps 56:14. Meditation is a cure for the soul, a sort of medicine of the spirit, a catharsis of the mind, and it is especially so when, as in this book, it points to reflection on the Word of God.
