This reader's uncle is a lapsed Catholic, recently diagnosed with terminal cancer that has progressed to a very serious point:
I'm putting together my own card and "care package", and I am wondering if there are any suggestions for a Catholic book that might be good for a man in his situation, a lapsed Catholic who has maybe two or three months to live (barring a miracle - my friend did just go to Lourdes and prayed for him there!). Obviously, I doubt he would read anything that is either too deep or too long - there's something to be said for those "quick stories of hope" books. But there must be some book out there that someone has written, in an easy-to-read style, that would help one who is now dying to desire reconciliation with the Church before death. Any thoughts?
