How will you — how can you — answer God’s call to holiness?
The path to holiness is traveled step by step. The way of holiness is lived grace by grace. Your journey to God is nothing more, and nothing less, than that series of steps.
But how do you take that step each day? How do you live that grace each day? How, each day, do you answer God’s call, God’s personal invitation to holiness?
What New York’s Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan recommends, urges, reminds, and teaches is radical in the truest sense of that word: It is basic. It is at the roots. It is fundamental.
This solid theologian, noted Church historian, and natural-born storyteller goes first to the source: what Christ said and promised, what Scripture and Tradition tell us. Then building on that firm foundation, here, too, is what the Church teaches; what the saints have discovered, lived, and shared; what the Fathers and Doctors of the Church have written; what “ordinary” Catholics — on that path, accepting those graces — have come to learn.
Here is a detailed examination and encouraging explanation of faith, hope, humility, love and chastity, human formation, patience, penance, joy, and obedience.
Here is how to be a good steward of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as you hear and answer God’s call.
