Share time-tested insights as Saint Alphonsus guides you to spiritual empowerment through the practice of the love of Jesus Christ.
The Practice of the Love of Jesus Christ is a how to do it book written in 1768 long before these books became a current vogue. Then, as now, this book was written for people to read in the quiet of their "upper room." It is a familiar, friendly conversation with someone about a mutual friend named Jesus Christ.
Organized around the thirteenth chapter of Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians, this classic work unfolds practical aspects of loving Jesus Christ. Four introductory chapters lay out Alphonsus's program of spirituality. The book concludes with an invaluable chapter which covers an "abstract of virtues," showing how habits of good action are to be put into practice in daily living.
