Paperback 354 pages
Cardinal John O'Connor of New York presents profound meditations on all aspects of the Catholic faith based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In a style that is personal and informal, Cardinal O'Connor draws from the Scriptures, Vatican II and real life examples and experiences to help the reader have a better appreciation of the Catechism and a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith. In a series of 41 meditations based on the four parts of the Catechism -- the Creed, Sacraments, Commandments and Prayer - The Cardinal connects the teachings of the Catechism with the themes and biblical readings from the Church's liturgical year to inspire the reader to put into practice in his daily life the Catholic faith taught in the Catechism. His medications include such topics as "The Truth about Creation," "Virtue and the Art of Living," "The Last Thing," "The Great Sacraments of Healing," "The Key to the Universe," and "At the Heart of All Prayer."
