How will you -- how can you -- answer God's call to holiness?
The path to holiness is traveled step by step. The way of holiness is lived grace by grace. Your journey to God is nothing more, and nothing less, than that series of steps.
But how do you take that step each day? How do you live that grace each day? How, each day, do you answer God's call, God's personal invitation to holiness?
What New York's Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan recommends, urges, reminds, and teaches is radical in the truest sense of that word: It is basic. It is at the roots. It is fundamental.
This solid theologian, noted Church historian, and natural-born storyteller goes first to the source: what Christ said and promised, what Scripture and Tradition tell us. Then building on that firm foundation, here, too, is what the Church teaches; what the saints have discovered, lived, and shared; what the Fathers and Doctors of the Church have written; what "ordinary" Catholics -- on that path, accepting those graces -- have come to learn.
Here is a detailed examination and encouraging explanation of faith, hope, humility, love and chastity, human formation, patience, penance, joy, and obedience.
Here is how to be a good steward of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as you hear and answer God's call.

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.
