Interior Freedom - Fr. Jacques Philippe
By Fr. Jacques Philippe
Interior Freedom leads one to discover that even in the most unfavorable outward circumstances we possess within ourselves a space of freedom that nobody can take away, because God is its source and guarantee. Without this discovery we will always be restricted in some way and will never taste true happiness.
Fr. Jacques Philippe develops a simple but important theme: we gain possession of our interior freedom in exact proportion to our growth in faith, hope, and love. He explains that the dynamism between these three theological virtues is the heart of the spiritual life, and he underlines the key role of the virtue of hope in our inner growth. Written in a simple and inviting style, Interior Freedom seeks to liberate the heart and mind to live the true freedom to which God calls each one.

I heard Fr. Jacque Philippe being interviewed on Catholic radio a few weeks ago and was very drawn to his words. I decided to look into his writings and purchased Interior Freedom. Although this book just 134 pages long , it is full of much simple wisdom based on the Beautitudes. I would read alittle and ponder. I highly recommend this little gem of a book.
