The Spark of Faith

Understanding the Power of Reaching Out to God

About this item

Faith is essential to our spiritual growth yet, too often, good Catholics hold misconceptions about faith’s meaning or role – misconceptions that can lead to spiritual stagnation.

In these pages, Fr. Wojciech Giertych, OP, Theologian of the Papal Household, corrects prominent errors and clearly articulates what faith is, how it works, and how it may expand, or wither, within our soul.

He explains that the initial moment – the spark – of faith which ignites our entire spiritual life comes first from God. Because faith is a divine gift that is alive, we can explore the laws of its development and learn the principles of its nourishment in order to fully live a life of faith that influences our intellectual and moral life.

Fr. Giertych’s moving and practical reflections on the spiritual life bring ancient wisdom to bear on our modern age, teaching what it really means to have and grow in faith. You’ll come to understand the proper relationship between faith and reason, and you’ll deepen your understanding of the role of prayer in the life of faith.

The Spark of Faith will help you focus your attention on God as the fundamental source of all the spiritual goods we need and cherish.

Fr. Giertych has served as the Theologian of the Papal Household for two popes. His is wisdom you can trust.

If you want to touch God read this book!
This book, like no other, helped me understand what faith is, and how it operates. I think faith may be the least understood theological virtue, yet it is so central to our encounter with God. It is the means by which we actually touch God. Papal theologian, Fr. Wojciech Giertych, has a gift of expressing the most profound and complex theological truths in clear, concise language grounded in the concrete circumstances of everyday life. While not a light beach read, it is an accessible treasure chest of wisdom. This book is to be read, savored and reread.
