“but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” —Luke 10:42
“In this book…Father John provides both an elegant and memorable method for meditation along with very helpful examples of specifically how to put this method into practice. He manages to do this while keeping our sights on Christ, not the method… May your faith, and the faith of those you love, be uniquely blessed by this important work.”

The Better Part
Fr. John Bartunek, LC, S.Th.D
This book should be declared a national treasure! We lead tremendously busy lives, with 1,001 things to do. Even so, every saint and renowned spiritual director through the ages has said the same thing: If we desire to become saints, we must spend time daily in meditation. The Better Part enables us to read, meditate, absorb, and apply the Gospels to our lives. It serves as a catalyst to personalize times of prayer, enabling us to follow the Holy Spirit’s lead along the path of holiness. The portable resource has a ribbon to mark your place and contains detailed indices to help you meditate either on the liturgical seasons or the virtues you feel most in need of developing.
The best-selling book, now in its fourth printing, features a substantive, meditative and flexible structure. The first section offers a detailed and practical guide to Christian mediation. The second, larger section is divided into units. Each unit consists of five parts: a passage from the Gospels and a four-part commentary based on the same four themes throughout the book: Christ the Lord, Christ the Teacher, Christ the Friend and Christ in My Life. All four Gospels are contained and commented upon in their entirety.
You lead a tremendously busy life, with 1,001 things to do so The Better Part enables you, through small daily meditations, to read, meditate, absorb, and apply the Gospels to your life.
