9780829420258: May Crowning, Mass, and Merton and Other Reasons I Love Being Catholic

“Liz Kelly’s love of her Catholic faith is an inspiration. I highly recommend her wonderful book.”
—Matthew Kelly, New York Times best-selling author of
The Rhythm of Life

In May Crowning, Mass, and Merton, Liz Kelly, a thirty-something writer and jazz singer, eagerly shares her ardent love for the Catholic faith. While the beliefs of the church are important to Kelly, her passion is really ignited by the holy people and places, the beloved rituals, and the rich spiritual traditions of this living faith. She celebrates them here, with wit, affection, and candor.
Kelly has realized that “the litany of reasons to love being Catholic is extraordinary.” These include every­thing from the crucifix, kneelers, and Ash Wednesday to Flannery O’Connor, the Swiss Guard, and Tenebrae. Though she writes that, “Mine is not an extraordinary faith, so much as a faith growing a little messy, a little rough and subversive around the edges,” it is a rich, inspiring faith, celebrated by a fresh, young Catholic voice.

Book Description:

  Thirty-something Liz Kelly is successful writer, a jazz singer, and an assistant to the president of Harvard Univeristy.  She is also a devout Catholic who loves her faith and is eager to share its beauties with others.  "Mine is not an extraordinary faith," she writes, "so much as a faith growing, a little messy, a little rough and subversive around the edges.  But the litany of reasons to love being Catholic is extraordinary."

Kelly offers her personal list of reasons to love being Catholic--from May Crownings to daily Mass, to Pope John Paul II and kneelers in chruch.  With wit and great affection, she describes the holy people and places, beloved traditions, and joyful practices that constitute the vast, rich panoply of Catholic life well lived.  She shows how the Catholic Church is a great storehouse of spritual gifts that are offered to each believer.

May Crowning, Mass, and Merton is an exuberant and lively look at a fully-alive faith and a young woman who embodies the hopes and promises of today's spiritual seekers. 

 

About the Author:

Liz Kelly is the author of both fiction and nonfiction books, including The Rosary: A Path into Prayer (Loyola Press), and a jazz singer who has released two CDs. She currently lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, and is pursuing graduate work in Catholic studies at the Unviersity of St. Thomas.
