"In this beautifully illustrated and photographed book, best-selling author Msgr. Joseph Champlin explores the major teachings and observances of the Catholic tradition: history, worship, prayer, sacraments, faith, moral issues, community and more. Each of the 12 chapters opens with a true story that highlights a common challenge of everyday life. Using these incidents as a springboard, Msgr. Champlin shows how the Scriptures, the Mass and the sacraments, and the resources and guidance of the Church help us to live a fulfilling, grace-filled life."

Father Joseph Champlin (1930-2008) was a prolific author, world traveler, lecturer, and passionate theologian. Ordained in 1956, Father Champlin was the pastor at several churches; at the time of his death, he was the sacramental priest at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Warners, New York. Over the years he touched thousands of lives, writing fifty books, traveling more than two million miles around the world, and founding the Guardian Angel Society, a nonprofit organization that helps needy children with their educational needs. In 1972 he served as associate director in the Secretariat for the Liturgy of what was then called the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington, DC, and he spent a year at the Pontifical North American College in Rome, Italy. Father Champlin devoted his life to caring for people and showing the compassion and forgiveness that Christ's love and God's grace provides. We are thankful that Father Champlin's magnificent work and dedication to Christ's teachings live on through his wonderful books.
