Overview

We all desire a life of enlightenment, happiness and peace. At the same time we recognize that life comes with suffering. How do we reconcile these two realities? As Christians we believe that Christ reconciles these two realities; that in Him we can enjoy enlightenment, happiness and peace even in the midst of a life of suffering, trial and tribulation. Holiness is the goal of our earthly journey toward the fullness of light, happiness and peace. In a world that thirsts and aches for meaning and purpose, the spiritual life provides the means for attaining this goal. This present work summarizes and explains the tried and true in Roman Catholic tradition in the areas of prayer and spiritual development. It is a blueprint in which everyday Catholics can find their way to the sanctity for which we should all aspire.
