 Our Description


Rev. Edward J. Hayes, Rev. Msgr. Paul J. Hayes, James J. Drummey

A great number of people today have put moral and ethical principles aside, and some have even removed religion entirely from their lives.  This radical rejection of God and morality, Pope John Paul has said, "represents one of the most acute pastoral concerns of the Church amid today's growing secularism, wherein many, indeed too many, people think and live as if God did not exist."  (Veritatis Splendor, n. 88).

The tragic consequences of ignoring God and essential moral standards are all too apparent in the shocking headlines in our newspapers and the frightening scenes on television.  Catholicism and Life explains the necessary place of the moral principles contained in the Ten Commandments and shows how God helps us to follow those principles by giving us a share in the life of the Blessed Trinity through the seven Sacraments.

Relying heavily on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and such important papal documents as Veritatis Splendor, this book touches on many of the moral dilemmas facing people today and offers some practical advice on how to resolve those dilemmas by following God's blueprint.

Catholicism and Life also traces the scriptural origins of the sacraments, those channels through which God pours out His graces on us, and explains the rites that will help us to live the Christian life to the fullest.  But most important of all, it points to Jesus as the way, the truth, and the life.  With its popular style, Catholicism and Life makes interesting reading for almost anyone, but is particularly suited for a one-year high school or college course, as well as for adult education or RCIA programs for those seeking entrance into the Catholic Church.
