It is a Christ-like act to befriend a sick or a lonely person: this book is a wonderfully useful guide to giving the most you can by your visits. Written by authors with long pastoral experience, it will prove a real help to all those who seek to turn the routine visit into a time of real spiritual growth.

Customer Reviews

I have found this absolutely invaluable in visiting those who are sick and/or dying. But also good for regular pastoral visits too.
