Conquering Coronavirus: How Faith Can Put Your Fears to Rest

  • Practical weapons you can use to conquer this faceless enemy
  • Ease the burden placed on you and your family and others

Whether the coronavirus still threatens you, your friends, and your family or has harmed someone you love, these pages will ease your fears, heal your wounds, quench your sorrow, and bring you the consolation God provides to all who seek Him in pestilential times like these — times that are, in fact, not foreign to our ancient Faith.

For in Christianity’s two-thousand-year history, cruel persecutions and sudden, uncontrollable plagues like COVID-19 have time and again struck mankind, challenging Christians to rise up spiritually against evils that cannot immediately be conquered materially.

Now our turn has come . . . along with the help we need to succeed. Here celebrated Catholic author and media host Teresa Tomeo has drawn forth from Scripture, the lives of the saints, and contemporary sources a healing balm for souls — believers and unbelievers alike — who have been shaken by the frightening evils thrust upon us by this coronavirus. With scores of emotional stories and practical weapons you can use to conquer this faceless enemy — and with reflection questions that make it perfect for group study and book clubs — these welcoming pages offer you:

Inspiring true-life narratives of selfless souls — healthcare workers and other public servants — on the frontlines of the battle against the virus

Touching tales of clergymen providing creative ways to minister to their flocks — sometimes risking their lives to do so

Prayers appropriate for the unique threats — material and spiritual — that we face today

Powerful quotes from Scripture and from beloved saints that provide guidance and hope for such times, and welcome consolation for our losses

Advice to help you bear gracefully the many unexpected burdens that are suddenly yours to carry, including those you never asked for and do not want

Surefire ways you can — and should — ease the burden the virus has placed on others (and simultaneously ease your own)

Creative ways to respond at home and elsewhere to the limitations the virus has imposed on your days and ways, and to the invitation from God that is implicit in each of those limitations

Long-forgotten but time-tested traditional practices that will not only carry you through this crisis but also yield for you and your family a healthier, holier lifestyle once the crisis is over.

 

The Virtue of Hope: How Confidence In God Can Lead You to Heaven

In this marvelous series of reflections on Hope, adapted from a series of talks, Father Philip Bochanski not only lays out what hope is but also shows how we can exercise this theological virtue, through being daring, changing our ways, serving the Lord, struggling, suffering, and praying. Beginning with the Book of Genesis and proceeding through the Gospels, Aquinas, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, he examines how hope directs us to our ultimate goal of life with God and gives us the strength and perseverance to attain it. 

Bochanski’s fascinating stories of “Heroes of Hope”— inspiring saints such as St. Augustine and St. Teresa of Calcutta—show us how these familiar names learned to hope through moments of intense personal difficulty and crisis. Bochanski also tells fascinating stories about the lives of individuals like Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, St. Gianna Beretta Molla, and Chiara Luce Badano, showing how these seemingly ordinary Catholic laypeople applied their hope in God to the challenges of their state in life and the modern world.

The Virtue of Hope is excellent spiritual reading for everyone, an instruction manual for how to grow in hope and in bravery in the face of life’s challenges. It is a clarion call that hope must not be merely theoretical, but must “lead us to a deeper relationship with God, an encounter with the One who loves us and calls us to friendship with Himself.”

    Book really helped me in this time of fear. Loved the different scenarios at the end of the book for whatever you are going through.
