Overview

Nearly a century ago, the Trappist monk Jean-Baptiste Chautard sat in the silence of his cell and wrote this classic book, showing us how to live in the noise and bustle of the world and to win more souls for Christ. Praised by Pope St. Pius X, Pope Benedict XV, and by many cardinals and bishops, Inner Strength for Active Apostles was an instant hit, and has since been read with gratitude by hundreds of thousands of busy parents, teachers, preachers, catechists, and other Christians working in the world to save souls without losing their own. These Christians turned to this book because Fr. Chautard understands -- and here offers sure remedies for -- the particular spiritual problems that afflict all of us who try to bring others to Christ. He explains how to avoid the self-righteousness and pride that bring down successful apostles, and the indifference and despair that cripple unsuccessful ones. Relying on the spiritual wisdom of the greatest saints and mystics of the Church (from St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas to St. Francis de Sales and St. John of the Cross), Inner Strength for Active Apostles shows you how to achieve each of the three essential goals that you must accomplish in your apostolic efforts: you must win souls to Christ; you must promote your own spiritual welfare; and you must give glory to God. Here is a spiritual handbook that will bring holiness to you as you spread Christ's gospel, and will make it easier for you -- by your words and your example -- to lead ever more souls to Him.
