How can average Christians apply mercy and justice in their everyday lives? Can someone disagree with certain teachings of the church and still be a faithful Catholic? Why is forgiveness essential to freedom? What is effective prayer? What does it mean to be holy? Addressing these questions and many more, Fr. Brennan helps us see how our faith can make clear what matters most in our lives and the lives of those we love. Patrick J.
