Good spiritual directors can be difficult to come by; this book offers Pope Francis to be yours. Ever wonder what advice the Pope would give you to help you grow in holiness, deepen your prayer life, know God’s will?
In Practical Holiness you’ll find the keys to discovering the answers to those questions. With anecdotes about people and stories about saints, this exploration of Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation, Rejoice and Be Glad: On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World, reminds you that there is no cookie-cutter approach to holiness and encourages you to rediscover your unique way of living out the Beatitudes and Jesus’s two-fold command of love. You’ll navigate through the “five great expressions of love of God and neighbor” – essential for any Christian in our self-absorbed, digital culture.
Reflection questions at the end of each chapter, as well as forty personal questions at the end of the book, make this ideal for reflection, adult faith formation, book clubs, spiritual directors and their directees, and further catechesis during the RCIA’s Mystogogia period between Easter and Pentecost.
