Based on actual events, Guiding Missal's timeless journey of faith, patriotism, and miracles will surely touch your heart. Narrated by My Military Missal, a tiny prayerbook carried in the pockets of three generations of service members in one family beginning in World War II in 1942 during the Battle of the Bulge, into the 1960's during the cold war and the building of the Berlin Wall, stoking fears of World War III. The third serviceman carries the prayerbook is his pocket as he is deployed to Mogadishu, Somalia where as a member of the Quick Reaction Force, he becomes embroiled in what has become known as Blackhawk Down. When each of these men faces death during war or a conflict, this special missal provides divine guidance and comfort emanating from its pages. Guiding Missal is Inspirational and gripping, yet gives the reader a view of battlefield humor and tragedy as seen by one who was there.
"Nancy Panko's clever tale is as comforting as a guiding missal in one's shirt pocket, tucked close to the heart."
-Scott Mason, author of Faith and Air: The Miracle List and host of the Emmy-award-winning Tar Heel Traveler series
