"I believe that popular piety is a powerful way to open our minds and hearts to the revealed Word of God in Scripture and above all in the New Testament revelation of Jesus Christ." --Alfred McBride, O.Praem.
Each chapter of the book intertwines a Catholic teaching with the witness of a saint or other exemplary person to show that faith lived daily is a most powerful way to get at the heart of God's Word. Those you will meet include Blessed Franz Jagerstatter, Pope John Paul II, C.S. Lewis, and Pope Benedict XVI.
Reflections, prayers, questions, and sidebar meditations reinforce the connections made between the Church's teachings and the reader's spiritual and moral life. You will come away from this book with an informed mind and an uplifted heart for maintaining a strong devotional life.
