When Father James Keller founded The Christophers in 1945, he chose an ancient Chinese proverb as the motto, the credo, for the movement: "It's better to light one candle than to curse the darkness". Father Keller wrote the first Three Minutes a Day book of daily reflections in 1949, believing that "the most effective exterior action had to come from a strong interior spirituality".The popular series has continued for fifty years. With a story or anecdote for each day of the year plus a scripture verse and a prayer, each volume offers daily inspiration throughout the year. This is the thirty-fourth volume in the series. It is a collection of some of the best stories from several volumes, and to make it a true perennial, it includes a separate section for twenty-five movable holydays and holidays.
