"You can't 'get' to heaven," says Mother Macrina, "you must become heaven," and the way that happens is through prayer, repentance, and love. The wise and lively Mother Macrina—a fictional character born from the imagination of author Irma Zaleski—is a modern-day "desert mother" who lives quietly, but not quite silently, in a small apartment in a town perhaps like yours. Her surprising and often humorous answers to the questions put to her by her visitors make up this charming collection of parables on God, love, and everyday life. The disarmingly simple tales address the profoundest questions of faith with penetrating wisdom and a spirit of joy.

Review:

"Zaleski wins the most-insight-in-the-least-number-of-pages award."— Christianity Today

"An inspiring little volume. . . . These brief parables will make you laugh, smile, and pause to reflect upon your own life and maybe it will help you grow. Pick it up and I am sure you will enjoy it."—Christian Register
"This little book by Irma Zaleski is an encouragement to wonder and insight. . . . And the black-and-white illustrations by Father Ron Cafew add to the simple beauty of the message."—Arkansas Democrat Gazette

"There is power in these unassuming stories."—Brother David Steindl-Rast
