Before I review the book, I wanted to tell you a little about Saint Gianna.

In another passage, he says: In fact, lifting the veil on their private life, they show Journey of our love that love centered in Christ takes away nothing of the beautify of being in love of attraction toward and passion for the beloved, of loving transports and dedication to the children.

On the contrary, in these Journey of our love of husband and wife, these sentiments are set before us, fresh, pure and joyful, ever renewed by participation in the Church's liturgy and by communion in prayer which kept the two united during their separations, the birth of new babies and the demands of their professions.

This couple worked, prayed, lived apart, struggled with loss, and loved so deeply and tenderly. They complimented each other in every way.
