This book was the fifth one that Michael memorized. It was premiered November 30, 1999 at Blessed Kateri Tekawitha Parish in Hoopa, California. This was the first Sunday of Advent, in a sense the first liturgical day of the New Millennium. Reading this text is not the same as hearing it. There is a special blessing at the beginning and at the end for those who "listen" to the text. There is a clarity in the hearing that helps the understanding of a text filled with depth and symbolism. The theme of Endurance is easily understood in the hearing.
