The new life in Christ We receive at baptism is sustained by our practice of the three theological virtues: faith, hope, and love, backed by the practice of the four moral virtues, viz., prudence, Which directs us in making correct choices in life; justice, which helps us give others their due; temperance which helps us control our emotions and passions; and fortitude, which helps us overcome fear that keeps us from loving God. This book demonstrates very effectively how one can go about living out all those virtues With the help of the Holy Spirit who inspires and strengthens us to come to the aid of our neighbour through Works of mercy in his spiritual and bodily needs in a consistent and joyful manner. It takes the reader beyond the emotional quotient evident in every act of mercy to the concreteness of the true Christian vocation, connecting love of neighbour with love of God as seen in the Gospel, in the process raising us above our self-centredness to a high level of other-centredness — the level at which We meet Jesus.

Christ* Church* Mankind; The Spirit of Vatican II according to POPE JOHN PAUL II
The glory of God is the living man, say St. Irenaeus. This same perception so dear to John Paul II is central to the vision of faith that underpins Vatican II, reemerges in its documents, and shines out of the long and intense witness of Pope John Paul II.
Yours is the Church
this book provides an urgently needed and eye-opening reminder of the historical witness, cultural greatness, moral leadership, and perennial relevance of the catholic church. Christianity has radically changed the world for the better. in a book that's both thoughtful and entertaining, Mike Aquilina shows how the Gospel really has been the good news in the most practical ways possible. Even the atheist ought to thank...whoever he thanks...for the rise of Christianity.
