About the book
"Reiser's Ramblings" is a collection of daily/weekly meditations/devotions ~ daily reflections from the best columns written over the past three decades by Fr. Bernard Reiser, former pastor of Epiphany Parish in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. From farm living to an eternity in Heaven, Fr. Reiser brings together a wonderful
collection of Christian spiritual "ramblings" that all of us can take to heart. We end up with a lovely book of short, easily read reminiscences and edifying stories and thoughts, with each column titled. The reader is
meant ponder the spiritual message and meaning in each column and how, or if, it applies to each individual life.
Father Bernard Reiser - Dec 29, 1924 - Dec 27, 2011 an American Roman Catholic priest known for his preaching and for his charitable giving, both locally and abroad. Father was ordained on June 4, 1949, by Archbishop John Gregory Murray. His first Solemn Mass was at Holy Name of Jesus, the parish where he attended as a child. He was assigned to St. Mary of the Lake parish in White Bear Lake, MN. In 1964, Archbishop Leo Binz asked Fr Reiser to start a parish in the quickly-growing suburb of Coon Rapids. Seventy acres of farmland was acquired for the new church, which was named Epiphany after one of the great feast days of the Lord.
Under Father Reiser's leadership, Epiphany grew to become one of the largest Catholic communities in the state. In addition to a spacious sanctuary, the Epiphany campus includes an elementary school, a Perpetual Adoration chapel, a senior housing complex, an assisted living facility, a cemetery, and several outdoor shrines. While being retired he volunteered his time to parishes in and around the Twin Cities of Minnesota.
