9780060641856: The Things of the Spirit

This rich devotional book gathers the reflections of Pope John Paul II - the "People's Pope" - on themes of faith, prayer, Christian living, love, peace, and the joy that can be found even in a troubled world, when one places one's trust in Go's infinite goodness. The Things of the Spirit celebrates the simple faith that distinguishes the Pope's beliefs and pronouncements and reveals the important spiritual values that are the root of his teachings. Implicit in The Things of the Spirit is a compelling summons to Christians to rediscover those timeless truths and eternal values that transcend a fashionable but short-lived materialism. The things of the Spirit is eloquent and persuasive, a call to return to fundamental Christian beliefs, to reclaim "the things that really count: God's love for you, and your love for one another. Pope John Paul II offers the nourishment of solid spirituality, as he places emphasis on "the integrity of faith, the perfection of Christian life, and the disciplines of the Church." Addressing such persistent worldwide problems as hunger, economic injustice, war, suffering. loss of human dignity, and the longing for community, the Pope gently yet compellingly stresses the authority and power of a Christ-centered love as the key to restoring our faith and resolving humanity's deepest needs. The Things of the Spirit is a book to take comfort in, to rejoice in, and to use as a prayerful means to more rewarding life.
