Fr. Hugh Thwaites, S.J. And The Imitation Of Christ

After the bible, there is no sounder spiritual reading than The Imitation of Christ.
It encourages us gently, yet with firmness, to follow Christ more faithfully, and shows us how to do it. Fifteen minutes a day would give us a balanced spiritual diet.
Since it was written, early in the 15th Century, thousands of editions and translations have appeared.

Link (here) to Sonitus Sanctus and listen.

The version Fr Thwartes has read is by far the best English translation of the Imitation of Christ I've set my eyes (and ears) upon.
I've heard the mp3 files dozens upon dozens of times, perhaps even a hundred times over the past years and still continue to listen to them (A very beautiful voice, beautifully read!!!)
