About this item

Do you attend Mass out of love rather than obligation?

Are you closer to God now than you were a year ago?

Are you able to keep a consistent prayer life?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, your spiritual life needs a jump-start. In From Humdrum to Holy, popular priest and radio host, Fr. Ed Broom, will stir in you a holy reverence and spiritual joy that’ll point your soul to heaven.

By following the wise counsel of this experienced spiritual advisor and confessor, you’ll first learn how to identify your “kryptonite” — those hidden sins in your life that keep God from working in your soul.

Fr. Ed will walk you through the simple steps to creating a plan of life — your roadmap to the heights of holiness. In a clear, methodical, and practical way, you’ll learn how to cultivate virtues like patience and purity — virtues that are difficult to attain but essential for happiness in this life and getting into heaven in the next!

You’ll discover some of the most potent Catholic traditions, such as lectio divina, that have made saints out of countless sinners. And he’ll show you how to transform pious practices such as Confession and Eucharistic adoration into a powerhouse of graces flooding into your soul.

And finally, you’ll learn how to keep your spiritual life strong by forming a healthy conscience, and how the pains of suffering can be transformed into the tears of joy.

Scripture tells us that where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more. Our world needs saints, and God is offering you the graces needed to become one. Leave behind the humdrum spiritual life and open the door to the road to sainthood. Fr. Broom is ready to show you the way.

"Vatican II taught that all are called to holiness.  In Fr. Broom’s book, readers will find an accessible and practical guide toward that goal."

"I'm a direct beneficiary of Fr. Ed Broom's extraordinary zeal for souls. His passionate pastoral concern for lost sheep helped bring me back to the practice of my Catholic Faith in high school, and his stirring homilies enkindled in me an ardent desire for holiness. I pray that the potent practical wisdom of these pages will inspire many others to strive for greater sanctity."

Highly recommend it! This book is for those wishing to grow in holiness.
In this book, From Humdrum to Holy, I consider the voice of the author, Fr. Ed Broom, O.M.V., as one of a Sheppard, encouraging his flock to dare enter through the gates of Heaven. The chapters are short and concise with concrete examples guiding the reader how to prepare his soul for Gods transforming power from lukewarm Catholic into a fervent servant of God. He encourages us to reevaluate our sacramental life and live it more fully. The analogies, lives of saints and scripture passages he uses help bring home the point that in life as in Holy Scripture God calls us to be Holy. I highly recommend this book if your heart desires to grow in holiness. The tools are all here, it is up to us to apply them. Great gift for encouraging loved ones to walk closely with the Lord. Thanks to Fr. Ed Brooms preaching and teaching my relationship with God has been rekindled. I found his website, FATHERBROOM.COM, to be a treasure-trove for the spiritual life with his podcasts, blog articles, YouTube videos and Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola he directs at his home parish of St. Peter Chanel in Hawaiian Gardens, Ca.
