Get Serious: A Survival Guide for Serious Catholics by Fr James Farfaglia
All too often when new Catholics, converts, or people who just want to live their faith look for a book it has too much unnecessary stuff along with it, extra unneeded fluff or curly Q's that really have ought to been trimmed off.
This book is plain and simple how to be serious about your faith and what is ultimately necessary without giving you extra stuff that may be nice but not useful. Be a saint! Be simple. Be Christ to the world that terribly needs his light and truth.
WARNING: IF YOU AR NOT READY TO BE SERIOUS ABOUT GOD AND YOUR FAITH GO BACK TO READ SOME READERS DIGEST STORIES BECAUSE THIS STUFF IS HARD CORE!
From Fr Farfaglia's Blog, Do Not Be Discouraged:
I am very happy to tell you that my new book Get Serious! - A Survival Guide for Serious Catholics is now available for you to purchase. The cost is only $14.95. The shipping and handling are free. If you want to live a serious Catholic life in a crazy world, then this book is for you.
Many of us have been deeply touched by a great Catholic classic An Introduction to a Devout Life by Saint Francis De Sales. A few years ago I picked up a copy and started to read it for the first time since I read it in college. I immediately thought that something new has to be written. Something new that answers the needs of today is so necessary. I decided to write a very practical book on how to live a serious spiritual life within the very difficult circumstances of our crazy world.
The project took me two and a half years to complete. Everything that I have been preaching about in my homilies is now in an easy to understand guide. The book is for adults and it is age appropriate for high-school students. It is an excellent tool for your entire family and it can be used for CCD classes, RCIA, and prayer groups.
My new book comes with endorsements from my dear friends Deacon Keith Fournier of Catholic Online, nationally known author Donna Marie Cooper O'Boyle, Spirit Daily's Michael Brown, Renew America columnist Matt C. Abbott, Judie Brown, President of the American Life League, TOB guru Steve Pokorny of the Archdiocese of San Antonio Family Life Office, and our dear Father Sam Medley, SOLT who is now a missionary in England. The book concludes with an epilogue from Catholic Online contributing author Jennifer Hartline.
This is a book that you need to read and pass around for others to read as well. I am very excited about this book because I know that it is going to shake up a lot of people. Click here to get your copy now.
