Editorial Reviews

"For so many years, the depth and the beauty of the sacraments have been lost on the faithful. Spirit and Life reveals the essence of the sacraments to the reader by sharing how each one is woven from the heavens into the unique life of every person. Its pages are beautiful and the writers present a new understanding - a deeper love of the sacraments and the mystery of our Church."

"This book is absolutely amazing. What an achievement. I love the how the treasures of the faith are woven together with the Catechism, Church Fathers, Beautiful art, and personal stories of how the sacraments are transforming lives today. This is a book Catholics can read and then continue to read for a lifetime."

"I thoroughly enjoyed Spirit and Life: The Holy Sacraments of the Catholic Church. I found it insightful with fresh and substantial reflections on the Holy Sacraments. For me, Sam Guzman’s reflection on Marriage is particularly wise and helpful for all vocations in life. The whole book is filled with plenty of material for meditation combined with real life stories which provide real life application of the theology."
