Back to Virtue: Traditional Moral Wisdom for Modern Moral Confusion, Dr. Peter Kreeft
“Kreeft issues a clear call to all Christians to get back to their active pursuit of real virtue in their daily lives. This in-depth analysis of the meaning of the virtues and their connection with the Beatitudes also summarizes a scriptural and theological wisdom on leading a holy life. Includes the accumulated wisdom of St. Paul, C.S. Lewis, and many others.”
Let us join our Holy Father in prayer for his following July 2010 petitions-
The Holy Father’s general intention is:
“That in every nation of the world the election of officials may be carried out with justice, transparency and honesty, respecting the free decisions of citizens.”
His missionary intention is:
“That Christians may strive to offer everywhere, but especially in great urban centres, an effective contribution to the promotion of education, justice, solidarity and peace.”
Lord, hear our prayer.

“I was so impressed by your beautiful tv commercials, I had to come check you out. I was away from the Church for many years, and have been “home” for about 12 years. I am a Eucharistic Minister & Catechist in my parish, and I am very interested in helping others to find their way into the Church. I will be sharing your information with my parish and friends who have fallen away from God. Thank you for starting such an important ministry! God Bless You!” – Wendy, WI
