"Good teachers of the spiritual life--who open up the gospel so that we can live it ourselves--are rare.Father Albert Haase is one of these wise people. He joins biblical wisdom with centuries of lived experience.In This Sacred Moment he focuses on the inward deepening that shows itself in a generous outward life.And blesses us."
Emilie Griffin, author of Doors into Prayer and Souls in Full Sail

Timothy M. Gallagher

"With engaging Franciscan simplicity, and in a lucid and accessible style, Father Haase writes of holiness as responding to God's call in the present moment--a teaching he finds in the spiritual classic Abandonment to Divine Providence and re-presents in contemporary terms.. . .[Readers] will find much to ponder in the rich examples and insightful reflection questions offered in this down-to-earth and warmly written book."
Timothy M. Gallagher, O.M.V., author of The Discernment of Spirits

Gary W. Moon

"What a refreshing mixture of story and spiritual wisdom. Fr. Albert Haase offers a simple yet profoundly insightful book for finding the marvelous mundane in the moments of our day. I believe spiritual directors and directees will find this book to be a rich resource."
Gary W. Moon, M.Div., Ph.D., vice president, Richmont Graduate University, and author of Apprenticeship with Jesus

Alice Camille

"I've finally got an answer for folks who wonder how it's possible to pursue holiness in a cavalierly secular age. I can tell them:journey intoThis Sacred Moment. Father Albert envisions holiness as a series of gentle decisions refashioning us into people of charity. With an engaging mix of Scripture, storytelling, practical steps and reflective questions, he makes holiness seem not only possible for you and me, but quite likely.Unleash your inner saint!"
Alice Camille, coauthor of The Forgiveness Book
