Overview

From Msgr. Peter Vaghi—popular pastor, sought-after speaker, and author of the acclaimed four-book Pillars of Faith series on the Catechism of the Catholic Church—comes this fresh and challenging look at how Catholics can encounter Jesus and grow in their relationship with him.

In one of the first homilies after his election, Pope Benedict XVI said: "There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ." In his newest book, popular DC-based pastor and teacher Msgr. Peter J. Vaghi connects this vision to everyday life, drawing on gospel passages that portray Christ's power and his important teaching in parables and offering challenging reflections that show readers how they can draw near to Christ: by studying scripture, celebrating the sacraments, and exercising the ministry of charity.
