+Discontinued through PO reconciling

What's the difference between saints, heroes, other great achievers-and the rest of us? Not their natural gifts, but their acquired ability to focus their wills toward high aims, writes the distinguished psychologist (of the old school), Jesuit Johann Lindworsky.

A pioneer in the psychology of the will, Fr. Lindworsky penned many scholarly works, but nothing for the average layman until this popular book was written in 1929.

But he had a second, vital purpose: to counteract dangerous writings in psychology that were luring Catholics into error. Grounded in sound science and Catholic principles, Fr. Lindworsky's wisdom is as timeless and effective as most modern "selfhelp" hooks are faddish and misleading.

  • What virtues do you most lack?
  • Right and wrong ways to control our thoughts. Training the imagination

  • Tend to hesitate and miss your opportunities? Your cure
