Is Catholicism more than giving up beer or chocolate for Lent?
Even if it is good beer or great chocolate the answer is a resounding yes! In fact, we re called to have such faith that when others meet us they actually see Christ. But how do we do that in a world where Notre Dame means football and not Our Lady? By following the lead of so many before us…
We have living examples of holy men and women who overcame the same types of temptations we face and shortcomings we all have, to become huge, blinking neon signs that pointed to Jesus. And if they can do it so can we…with a little practice.
Author, lecturer, and Catholic convert Matthew Leonard combines the stories of the saints triumphs and struggles along with his own personal anecdotes and wry humor to show us all a fresh take on the art of being truly Catholic in a contemporary world.
“We all need help to grow spiritually, especially when it comes to cultivating a life of prayer and holiness … Matt Leonard shows us the way. Full of biblical wisdom and practical insight, readers will be inspired and challenged to grow, and then motivated and empowered to go forth.”
—Dr. Scott Hahn, best selling author and speaker
“‘Louder Than Words’ is a theological thrill ride, one that will leave you breathless and exhilarated by God’s love. Matthew Leonard knows the Catholic faith and, even more impressively, he knows how to articulate it in a way few others can. This book inspires while it challenges – echoing Sacred Scripture, it will both comfort you in your afflictions and afflict you where you might have grown too comfortable. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and get this book.”
—Mark Hart, author, speaker, and Executive Vice President of Life Teen International
“Matt Leonard wants to show us that God repeatedly chooses weak folks like us to accomplish glorious things.”
