Here's help for everyone who makes good resolutions, but who has trouble keeping them. According to the author, Fr. Philip E. Dion, your problem is probably not that you're too weak to be good - God gives everyone the help he needs to conquer sin. Rather, you may be struggling because you aren't taking full advantage of the many spiritual means that God has made available to help you live a truly holy life. That's why Fr. Dion wrote A Handbook of Spiritual Perfection - to show you simple ways that you can, by God's grace, start keeping your resolutions once and for all.
In a word, this wise book explains how God has provided you with everything you need to overcome your faults and, indeed, to be perfect! Fr. Dion gives you practical methods for using God's gifts profitably and intelligently. He shows you how to motivate yourself to grow in holiness, how to pray more deeply than you may ever have before, how to identify and root out your predominant fault (and your other faults), how to make your Confessions more fruitful, how to abandon yourself to God's will, and much more.
Above all, Fr. Dion reveals how you can integrate his sensible and deeply spiritual advice into your daily life, so that at every moment you'll be giving glory to God and reaping the peace and happiness that come from serving Him.

Philip E. Dion (1910-1994) was a gifted teacher, writer, and retreat master. He wrote five books and numerous articles that reflect his humor, compassion, and strong ability to encourage. He was able to distill profound theological truths so that even non-theologians could understand them with perfect clarity. His works offer today's readers both the motivation and the means to grow in spiritual perfection.Review:
