Overcoming Sinful Anger

About this item

When St. Jane Francis de Chantal encouraged St. Francis de Sales to be a bit angrier over the opposition they were facing in starting their religious order, he replied, “Would you have me lose in a quarter hour what has taken me twenty years’ hard work to acquire?

St. Francis de Sales had quite a temper when he was young. But over time he learned to convert his angry feelings into virtuous action. He knew that anger never leads to happiness. Worse, it causes tremendous harm to our relationship with God.

In these pages, the wise Fr. Morrow shows you how to pull the rug out from beneath your anger and reclaim a life of peace and grace. You’ll come to understand the root causes of angry behavior, ways to heal painful memories, and how to deal well with your hurts and humiliations.

You’re not likely to overcome blowups and anxiety through willpower alone. You need tools that help you cultivate the habits that lead to virtuous action. You’ll discover here simple ways to influence your behavior, control your impulses, and rebuild tattered relationships.

When you follow the simple advice offered in these pages, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’re giving up all desire for revenge, forgiving those who hurt you, and finding peace in your life. You’ll also learn:

  • The difference between righteous and sinful anger.

  • Why saying "Well, that’s just the way I am” could cost you your soul.

  • The three root causes of every angry outburst

    Hardly Catholic, condescending, filled with bad advice
    I thought this was a reprint of an older book. Wrong! It was difficult to wade through, spiritually lacking, and cannot be recommended to anyone. A friend of mine also read it and had the same reaction. Skip this one and read the saints instead.

    Mad much? Parenting/marriage tip book
    This book is phenomenal! I have had anger issues for my entire life. This book is short, direct, and clear. I love it. I have just purchased two more as gifts and will probably increase those too. For me it is a parenting book and marriage book in one.

    Very good
    The book is well written. A very good synopsis of different causes for and types of anger and the difference between sinful anger and just anger. There are good suggestions for controlling anger and eliminating it from our lives.
