    A GR’s friend recently asked me if I gave 5 stars to all spiritual books. Actually I don’t. This is the sixth book by Fr. Gaitley I have read and while it is good, it seems to rehash ideas he has presented and discussed in other books. He makes the point, and I agree, that repetition allows us to go deeper in our learning and our relationship with God. Every time I have read or facilitated one of his books/consecrations, I have delved deeper and gone further. This book is no exception* and yet I A GR’s friend recently asked me if I gave 5 stars to all spiritual books. Actually I don’t. This is the sixth book by Fr. Gaitley I have read and while it is good, it seems to rehash ideas he has presented and discussed in other books. He makes the point, and I agree, that repetition allows us to go deeper in our learning and our relationship with God. Every time I have read or facilitated one of his books/consecrations, I have delved deeper and gone further. This book is no exception* and yet I would have preferred more new material. The emphasis on the Gospel of John and the free download of Leonardo Defilippis’s version are a big plus. March 22, 2020: As I was bereft when my retreat with St. Joseph finished, my sister suggested beginning this one. Along with it, we are also listening to Leonardo Defilippis's version of the Gospel of St. John which is mesmerizing and a free download of it comes with this consecration. *Perhaps some of my disillusionment with the book rests on the recent revelations concerning Jean Vanier, who Fr. Gaitley cites as an exemplary father figure during a large section of the book. Of course, it is not Fr. Gaitley’s fault that he put his trust in the wrong person. Who has not done that?! In fact, he began the book commenting on his misplaced trust in the former Cardinal McCarrick. So, in a way it is almost ironic that another iconic figure in the spiritual world has fallen. We are ALL, every one of us, sinners. And yet, at the same time I could not get the whole incident out of my head as I was reading the book. Hopefully in a future revised edition Fr. Gaitley will be able to make use of this information. This book was published February 5, 2020 and the information about Vanier was released by his community on February 22, 2020. Praise and thanks be to God for His Divine Mercy. May He continue to have mercy on us all.

    A beautiful, inspirational read. It brings the Gospel of John to real life for all walks of life by explaining the symbolism involved in this Gospel. The book was well written encouraging daily looking up!!! “33 Days to Greater Glory” is the third book in Father Gaitley’s trilogy. The other two books are: “33 Days to Morning Glory” then “33 Days to Merciful Love” All Highly Recommended Self Consecration Reads!!!

    Very good. Like his other consecration books, Fr. Gaitley writes in an easy manner, but with depth, so to be attainable in all walks of the spiritual journey. This is an excellent unpacking of our relationship to God the Father (to the extent it can be unpacked! Ha). I think one *could* read this book before “33 Days to Morning Glory” and “33 Days to Merciful Love” and still come away with a richer faith (isn’t the Father always reaching for us?). However, it is a natural read after the others. Very good. Like his other consecration books, Fr.

However, it is a natural read after the others. And while the Church has a plethora of writings on Mary’s role (and “33 Days to Morning Glory” is certainly a gentle guide and opening to Mary), sometimes new Catholics like to start elsewhere. You cannot go wrong jumping into the arms of the Father. I have this sense that one could read this book early on in his faith (maybe late middle school or high school even) and plant seeds of knowledge and faith that would grow fruitfully, even if later. I’m sure I’ll be rereading this again soon and encouraging my teenagers to do so, as well.

    I've always loved the Gospel of John, which was what originally drew me to this book, but now I love it even more. Fr. Gaitley does a great job peeling back the layers of symbolism and meaning in this gospel and brings it vividly to life. It's perfect Lent reading since we read so much of John during the Sundays of Lent in Year A! :) (Which is what we're in right now.) Highly recommend.

    I had high hopes for this book and really wanted to love it. I love all of the other books by Michael Gaitley but this one just fell flat. I didn't really get anything out of it. I didn't learn anything new, nor do I feel closer to the Father for having read it. I'm pretty bummed. I had high hopes for this book and really wanted to love it.

    Fr. Gaitley uses the Gospel of John as a framework to consecrate yourself to the Father. There’s beautiful daily meditations that have truly challenged my perspective and provide much reflection on themes that are so relevant to our society today.

    This was my first Fr. Gaitley book, and certainly won’t be my last. I loved his easy, inviting approach to the scripture readings. His zeal for the book of John was contagious, and I found myself growing in relationship to the Father, Son and Spirit each of day of our 33-day retreat. I’ve studied John in-depth before, but Fr. Gaitley’s perspectives were new and fresh, I really enjoyed this book!
