Overview

Father Ronald Lawler, O.F.M. Cap. (1926–2003), was a priest, teacher, author, theologian, catechist, spiritual advisor, and mentor, who lived the great life of faith and encouraged others to join him in loving Christ and His Church. In The Great Life, those who knew and loved Father Lawler honor him by continuing his work of presenting the faith in its fullness and beauty. This collection of essays is not only an invitation to know the faith, but also to love, live, and teach it from the heart of the Church.

From the Introduction by Kenneth Ogorek: Teaching the Catholic faith well . . . was the lifelong work of Father Lawler. . . . In applying himself to the work of catechesis, Father Lawler encountered dozens of brilliant Catholic women and men—scholars and leaders in their respective fields—many of whom got to know him well and, knowing him, loved him.

Many of these great Catholic minds and hearts desired to honor Father Lawler’s memory by offering their thoughts on the teaching of the Faith. This book presents these essays, not only to honor Father Lawler, but more importantly to continue his work of presenting the Faith it its fullness and beauty.

Father Lawler’s dearest desire was for all women and men to walk with our Lord as their saving Friend, living the great life of faith as members of His one Body, our Church. These essays will inspire many on their walk of faith.
