About this item

From the founder of EWTN Global Catholic Network comes this profoundly practical, humorous, and common-sense approach to answering life’s most vexing questions. Mother Angelica gently confronts your real-life struggles, lifting your heart to God and leading your soul to heaven as she provides answers from a life dedicated to God – not the promises of a world entrenched in vice.

Mother Angelica will become your trusted companion in the battle for virtue as you read through her advice and answer her call to grow closer to Christ. She’ll help you conquer your most deeply rooted sins, and she’ll lead you to overcome the fear of death, the pain of guilt, and the seemingly benign attachments you have to the things of this world.

She’ll also lead you to a more profound understanding of the spiritual life, explaining why it’s so hard to be good, why suffering must happen to even the best of us, and why God doesn’t answer all your prayers. With Mother Angelica as your guide, you’ll also learn:

How to pray even when God seems distant or silent. Ways to overcome the difficulty in believing in God. The five steps to discovering God’s will for you. The eight kinds of suffering – and how each can shape and purify your life Ways to avoid the most common mistakes in praying to God. What to ask for – and what not to ask for – in prayer Ways to overcome lust – and what God is trying to teach you with this affliction. How to throw your guilt into the ocean of God’s mercy. How to forgive, even when your pain is justified. The difference between good pride and bad pride How to listen as your guardian angel cautions and inspires you. How Jesus gives meaning to your loneliness. Why there is a heaven – and what you’ll do there.

First published nearly thirty years ago, this book remains as relevant and timeless as ever.

Great book
This is the best book I've read recently. Twelve chapters, broken into three topical groups; First Things, Life & Love, and Last Things. With all the wisdom, grace, and humor that Mother is known for, I was definitely not disappointed. I usually read straight through a book, but I have hopped around a bit this time. Easily five stars!

Not just for Catholics
You don't have to be Catholic to enjoy, learn, or be inspired by Mother Angelica. Whether you are searching for God, wondering why we suffer, or a devout Christian, you will be enlightened through her humor and honesty. I have bought five and given them to friends after reading this.

Perfect reading book
If you want to change yourself (not others) this is a book for you. It helps you understand what you are going through and that you are not alone. It is not a "religious" book but a down-to-earth book. Mother Angelica knew how to write and I'm grateful for her. I hope they make her a saint too.
