Brings the Sacraments to life
This book is such a beautiful vision of the sacramental life of the Church. The beautiful pictures and reflections personalize and make real the deep mysteries of our faith. I loved Sam Guzman's reflection on Marriage and found so many real life stories which helped me to understand and think about the sacraments differently. Such a treasure!

The compelling photography drew me in to find truth, beauty and goodness. With contributions from St. Cyril and St. Ambrose to Kendra Tierney and Lila Rose, I found encouragement and instruction to support my faith and reason. This book is a great resource for teachers of the faith and would make a great gift.

Beautiful and Uplifting
Spirit and Life merges meditations on the Sacraments with stunningly beautiful art, bringing to life and elevating the reflections. Drawing from Sacred Scripture, the Catechism, Church Fathers, clergy and laity, this book is a great resource for contemplating the gifts of the Sacraments. Each time I read a section or enjoy the incredible photography, I am struck by awe and wonder and find something deeper to reflect on. Truly a remarkable meditation aid!

Spirit and Life Set

Prayer. Why should we practice it especially by way of the Sacraments? Not because we feel emotionally inclined, but becuase it is the right thing to do.
