Book Review: The One Thing 📚

I received this book as a gift from a speaker at my parish. He distributed them after giving a talk on the importance of praying as a family.

This is not the first book that I’ve read by Matthew Kelly, and, like his other work, it did not disappoint.

It’s a short book that tells a simple story that every parent has experienced. One night, his first child was crying. He picked up his boy, who fell back asleep. Only, Matthew didn’t set him down in his crib. Instead, he got lost in thought about the future for his son. His hopes, dreams, and aspirations filled his mind for three hours.

The central tenant of this book is the single reason why Matthew believes he will never leave the Catholic Church, the Eucharist. If we can teach our children the truth of the Eucharist, they will always find a home in the Church.
