When we lack a basic understanding of what the Church teaches, we can feel as if we're on a road without a map, or have the wrong map, or only pieces of the map. So how can we journey to the Father and the eternal life Christ won for us? Rerouting addresses this problem head on, putting the map once again into our hands-or, in today's Language, providing us with the voice of a GPS device telling us where we must go in order to come safely home. Starting with why God created us, Fr. Riccardo shows us step by step that the only path to true happiness is life with Jesus.
