    As with all books of a short nature, yet of a Catholic spiritual orientation, one is more amazed yet again at the level of wisdom and depth present within this book. This book ought to be something of a core requirement to read for all Catholics, who taking their Faith joyously and seriously in seeking to get to Heaven should follow through with reading once a year for the rest of their life, especially around the time of Lent [2 Weeks Prior to Holy Week].

The book is broken up into 2 parts, the first is aspects of Dying to Self (Prayer, Fasting, Sacraments, Dispositions, etc...) and then the second part is a 10 Day Exercise of Meditations, this I recommend doing 10-Days prior to Easter Sunday (wherein on Easter Sunday we arrive at the 10th Day of the Meditation).

    I try to read this book every Lent. This was my third time through. The fact that I'm finishing in September says something about how good I am with my spiritual reading. This is a practical and scriptural guide to living the good life. As Bellarmine loves to remind us, the good life is an attentive preparation for death and the life to come.

    A guide to the proper way to live/strong> The clearest cut and the direct way we should conduct our lives. My regret now is in not having read this earlier in life and then practicing it afterward

    St. Robert Bellarmine has some great insights in this book, particularly with how he deals with the sacraments. There were some parts of his discussion on matrimony on which I think the Church has come to a different understanding, however. I enjoyed the first half of the book more than the second half of the book. The second half deals, in part, with a plan for dying, including suggestions on what to do (per day?!), if possible. His section on confirmation was amazing -- something to share with p St. Robert Bellarmine has some great insights in this book, particularly with how he deals with the sacraments.

    Written in 1619, this book is surprisingly relevant. The author's premise is that dying well first requires living well! I have fuller review posted here: http://brightcatholic.blogspot.com/20...

    The title seems a bit depressing. The contents of the book cover how we should live, so we can die well. It is a great book that should be reread and take notes from. Every young and old person ought to read this book.
