    Product Description

    You were created by God to be a Saint, scripture says: "To all God's beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints: Grace to you�" (Romans 1:7) The Bible is the first book of the lives of the saints, and it is a pillar for Catholic Spirituality. As Scripture says: "Remember your leaders, who spoke to you the word of God. Consider how they ended their lives, and imitate their faith." (Hebrews 13:7) We must take this call to be saints more seriously than any other desire we have in life. To be unsuccessful in this is the only eternal failure we can make in life. There is no place we can go to avoid involvement in the war between heaven and hell on earth. We cannot remain neutral between God and the Devil; we will side with one or the other. There is no third option: 100 years from now we will either be with the saints in heaven or with the damned in hell. And, this final destination does not last 100 years, but for eternity. Our Lord said: "What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world, yet lose his own soul?" (Matt. 16:26) No task in life is more important than sainthood. This book shows the connections between the scriptures and the saints.

    Included in this book are chapters covering: Scriptural Guides to Purgatory, Dreams, Nutrition, and Chastity. Plus, Practical Guidelines for Spiritual Living, Why Pray the Rosary?, Life's Answers, Understanding atheism, and the Trinity in creation.
