The Joy of Being Catholic

A Resounding Affirmation of Our Faith

Celebrating the best of Catholic faith and culture, The Joy of Being Catholic offers enlightenment on topics like the sacraments, scriptures, saints, and arts.  With stories and poems to bring out the author's insights, this charmer is an ideal gift.

"What if your life were not pedestrian prose but a wonderful poem? What if your life were not a question but a revelation? Would not this be cause for joy? What if your life were not a sentence with a period at the end but a song that goes on and on? Would not this be cause for deep and abiding joy? This is what Catholicism means by joy."
The Joy of Being Catholic, from the Introduction
