Catholic Reads published their upbeat review of Roses for the Most High on March 11, 2020. They “recommend this poetry anthology for those who love poetry as well as for people who are discerning contemplative religious life or just want to know more about contemplative prayer in general. All of these poems would make for a really good read during the Lenten season or for a silent retreat.”

The poems from this book remind me of Thomas Merton’s writings. They’re a lot more contemplative than your average Shakespearean sonnet.”    M.S. Ocampo
