In our daily struggle to achieve higher standards of living, to satisfy our ever-increasing quest for more in this day and age, it's easy to remain distant and isolated from higher human value concerns. We're so busy living and pursuing personal goals, to many of us the rest of the world doesn't figure in our daily life in a significant manner. This work helps us find a path that brings us back to center. It blueprints a way back from the alienating pressures that surround us to finally regain inner harmony.

Initially, the reading awakens in us the desire to return to a more balanced existence, to find room in our heart and in our spirit to appreciate everything we enjoy simply by living among the non-poor of the first-world, where sanitary conditions, clean water, education, and endless comforts surround us while in the other two-thirds of the world our brothers and sisters across the globe must cope without the bare necessities that we take for granted. After we recognize our many blessings, it's a simple task to seed in us the desire to share, to give of ourselves to alleviate the plight of so many billions of people without clean water to drink or enough food to feed their family or a room to shelter their loved ones. Ultimately, the work succeeds in turning us into caring, sharing individuals eager to give of ourselves, of our wealth, and of our time, stretching a hand to the less fortunate, to consciously and conscientiously follow a path of service in a life-long journey that adds a new cherished dimension to our existence.

For its readers with eyes to see and ears to hear, the work manages to add a spiritual component to their lives as they attempt to alleviate the burden of so many with so much less in their communities, across the nation, and throughout the third-world.

Appreciate the way it has been updated in the light of public interest in climate issues, religious dialogue and the appointment of Pope Francis. Lacks even-handedness and critical thinking. Hagiographical. Too afraid to point up the negative aspects of Francis
