Single and Catholic
Living the single life – and choosing to live it in accord with our Catholic Faith – is no easy task. In these pages, author Judy Keane gives you guidance and encouragement as you find purpose and meaning in the life God has given you. More than learning to find a spouse, you will learn how to use your time in the single life to make something beautiful for God.
Within these pages you’ll read the stories of countless single Catholics who journeyed from loneliness to fulfillment, and how you, too, can fully live your Faith and accept the unique calling that Christ has called you to.
You’ll learn the five myths most single Catholics encounter, and proven yet charitable ways to respond to each. And you’ll explore the powerful role singles can – and must! — play in restoring our Church and culture.
Here you’ll meet those single saints who used the life they were given to grow in holiness and love of God, and explore the temptations and struggles that are unique to single Catholics, as well as time-tested ways to respond to each. More than anything, you’ll see that your time as a single Catholic isn’t just a waiting period but a time for you to realize your vocation and to start living a life in Christ right now.
Read this book, and you’ll gain the confidence and inspiration you need to find peace, joy, and meaning in your life as a single Catholic.
