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.

"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. "

What a wonderful book! In each small, bite-size chapter, Fr. Broom gives great practical and doable (that's the best part) advice on how to improve your spiritual life and grow closer to God. He shows us that holiness is something we can all strive for, yes even us ordinary people. If you take one of Fr. Brooms suggestions at a time and work on it, you'll probably grow a whole lot in your love for God. That's what I plan to do. And that's why even though I've read it, I know I'll be reading it again and again.

I enjoyed this and feel I benefited from reading it. I would have liked it to be a little longer, perhaps cover a little more territory. Recommend.
