The Virtues of Holiness - Fr. Juan Luis Lorda
By Fr. Juan Luis Lorda
The Virtues of Holiness offers a road-map for navigating our everyday activities, showing how we can reach the heights of Christian life in and through our work, family, and leisure activities.
Fr. Lorda offers his readers a daily spiritual plan and describes strategies for gaining the virtues needed for following Christ closely. The next steps are familiarity with the life of Christ and developing a deep interior relationship with Him. Although its path is challenging, The Virtues of Holiness leaves no doubt that the struggle to stay close to Christ lies within the reach of every Christian.
The author draws on a wide range of Christian apologists from the Church Fathers to St. Thomas Aquinas, as well as the 16th century Spanish mystics, John of Avila, John of the Cross, and Teresa of Avila. The result is a book that is accessible to readers of all ages, and especially young believers.
