What does it mean to be a holy person? The answer might surprise you.
This delightful yet challenging book from spiritual director Albert Haase provides practical wisdom for becoming holyright in the midst of "ordinary" life.
"Any and every situation holds the grace for the transformation called holiness. . . . [By] imitating Christ and emptying myself for the benefit of another," Haase writes, "I can become holy right where I am."
Haase guides us in this new way of living, offering practices that help us discern what God is calling us to in each moment, as well as clear direction for living in the Spirit, the source of our holiness. With brief, engaging chapters that share real stories of people who are living out holy transformation and short reflection questions, this book is designed to fit realistically into our already full lives.
"I believe that holiness is not as elusive or impossible as most of us think," Haase says. "That's not to say it's easy; it certainly is not. But I think there are many people in the world . . . who know that God calls them right where they are. Living in and guided by the Spirit, they imitate Jesus: they selflessly respond to God's call in this sacred moment for the enrichment of others."
You can too. Here's how.
