It's vacation time again and you're going on a guilt trip. You remember what it's like. You've been there-confronted with the temptation to violate the commandments in the hot tub, on the dance floor, at the bar or in the alley out back. You're struggling. Do you justify your actions and face damnation, or cancel the trip entirely? WHAT WILL YOU DO? A Traveler's Pocket Penance guides the reader through a personal contrition of prayer to appeal for the forgiveness of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The perfect size for the adventurer or business traveler. This book is dedicated to all those who struggle to make the effort to do the right thing.
