Be Holy: A Catholic’s Guide to the Spiritual Life

If you’re hoping to get to heaven, you’ll need a plan to reach your goal. Do you pray? Give any thought to the virtues? Do works of mercy? And what about the sacraments? Been to confession lately? Are you doing any spiritual reading?

This handy manual not only presents all the elements of a successful life, it also helps you incorporate those elements into everyday practice. Be Holy is the guide you need to achieve holiness now and heaven later.

“…a very serious expression of solid Catholic theology and tradition, and a convincing example of orthodoxy that attracts young adult Catholics. Readers can get old-time religion with a new expression and experience.” – Father Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R.
