How did the maestro advise the young violinist?

There is a story of a young violinist who had an audition at Carnegie Hall. As she hurriedly exited the subway, she was momentarily disoriented. To her relief, she saw an old man with a violin under his arm and thought that surely he would know.

“Sir, can you tell me how to get to Carnegie Hall?” she asked.

“Practice,” he said, with a grin.

It’s the same way with Catholic spirituality—growing in faith is all about practice.

This collection bytoday’s most respected Catholic writers offers a compendium of these practices, traditional and contemporary, that can enable us to sustain and grow a vibrant spiritual life.This must-have volume will quickly become a trusted companion for an entire lifetime of engagement with thebeauty and richness of the Catholicfaith.
