About this item

The Hidden Power of Kindness

Kindness counts. If you have trouble acting with the consistent kindness our Lord expects, your relationships with God and those you love may be suffering.

Probably you just can't find the time — and can't ever seem to develop the patience — that you need in order to be consistently kind amid the irritations that afflict you daily. That's why this book is such a godsend.

You'll learn how to be kinder, even in difficult circumstances

There's nothing complicated or magical about learning to be kinder; it just takes greater attention to the things that you do and how you do them. The Hidden Power of Kindness shows you how to become more aware of even your most offhand daily actions. You'll find simple, step-by-step, and spiritually crucial directions for how to overcome the habitual unkindnesses that creep — undetected — into the behavior of even the most careful souls.

If you want to make progress in the spiritual life, you can't afford to miss the bracing insights in this handbook for souls who yearn to be kinder. They'll give you years of solid help in overcoming sin so that you'll live more fully with others — and truly transform your corner of the world!

You'll learn:

  • Four ways you can become more considerate . . . immediately!

  • Sympathy: why it's your spiritual responsibility to show it to others — and five ways you can start doing so

  • Three things to do — and three things you must not do — in order to grow kinder quickly

  • Saints for Sinners

    Christ came not to call saints but to make them — often out of weak, stupid, and sinful men. That’s why the saints are not only models of holiness for us to imitate; they’re reminders that God’s grace can outshine every human flaw.

    As Alban Goodier’s classic Saints for Sinners shows us, even the greatest saints had to battle the same stubborn vices, temptations of the flesh, and bouts of spiritual dryness that afflict you and me today. In these pages, with a style that perfectly blends hagiographical detail, spiritual meditation, and a skilled storyteller’s touch, Archbishop Goodier brings us the tales of:

  • The mercenary fighting man and itinerant gambler who left behind his rough soldier's habits and founded a religious order to care for the sick

  • The backward, sickly teenager, disowned by his family and dogged by the Inquisition,who became a miraculous healer and paragon of humble simplicity

  • The willful Tuscan beauty with a bad reputation who forsook vanity and lust to answer God's call to live in poverty and penitence

  • The brilliant, brooding Spanish nobleman who gave up everything to be a missionary — only to see most of his efforts fail

  • The royal chaplain and daring Counter-Reformer who escaped the gallows but had to endure a lifelong interior martyrdom of doubt and discouragement

  • The hedonistic heretic and womanizer who traded worldly pleasure for divine happiness, and became one of the Church's greatest theologians

  • And other inspiring tales of imperfect souls "made perfect in infirmity"

  • Read these stories and find in them delight and encouragement, as well as hope. You'll come to see that there is no one so sinful, weak, or desolate that God has not already raised another like him to the heights of glory.
