My Daily Life is the follow-up title, and natural complement to, Father Paone’s indispensable My Daily Bread. While the latter focused on the interior life, My Daily Life focuses on the exterior life, offering practical advice on daily living and getting to the heart of human nature.
This powerful little volume will help you navigate a world that is “no paradise, neither…and utter hell.” My Daily Life offers sound advice on a host of daily struggles, including:
• How to strive for earthly fulfillment within the bounds of reason, reality, and morality (p. 12) • How to overcome our insecurity in a world that we cannot control (p. 59) • How to achieve self-possession by controlling undue anger (p. 87) • How to face life with a realistic outlook and avoid being overly emotional (p. 122) • How the theological virtue of hope can benefit us in our earthly goals as well (p .273) • And much more…
Father Paone presents the readings in “bite-sized” portions that make it easy to maintain a daily devotional schedule. This convenient, palm-sized book is overflowing with common sense, compassion, and holiness. The passages in the book will help transform belief into realization, and theory into practice. My Daily Life is an essential and relatively unknown part of the canon of great Catholic literature.
My Daily Life is a practical guide that will help you to persevere in the holy resolutions which you make at the time of confession, Holy Communion, missions, retreats, or any moment of grace.
A portion of proceeds from every purchase of this Confraternity of the Precious Blood title go directly to The Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood in Brooklyn, NY to support them in their vocation.

Life Changer Review by bizzy
This is not a book of prayers, as implied by the other reviewer. It is a book about why we act the way we do. If you read it thoughtfully, you will understand yourself and others on a new level, and thus be in a position to truly improve your life. Father Paone stresses throughout the book that we are imperfect, that we must be patient with ourselves as we strive to improve. The book has changed my life by bringing me peace and by gently pointing me in the right direction. It is catholic in the true sense of the word, i.e. "universal"--Father Paone's understanding of human psychology and of God's infinite mercy will benefit *anyone* who is willing to read it.
