Called to Be Holy based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A rewrite of Priests for the Third Millennium. Pay a little bit more and read the original. Both books are based on talks now Cardinal Timothy Dolan gave while rector of the North American College in Rome. While both books read like they are directed at seminarians and priests, the editing to make this book appropriate for lay people is lacking. That said, Priests for the Third Millennium, and this book which is an offshoot, have excellent counsel. Cardinal Dolan shares a deep spirituality, and addresses everything from personal development (don't be a slob, or arrogant) to the importance of prayer and humility. Either book ought to be high on the reading list of everyone, and required reading for all seminarians and priests. The importance of prayer comes through strongly, as well as living the virtues.
This little book is right up there with "Mere Christianity." A future classic.
