Getting Free: How to Overcome Persistent Personal Problems:
Free yourself from persistent sinful habits once and for all! Simple willpower isn’t enough when you’re struggling against anger, anxiety, addictions, sexual temptations, and other common problems. Bert Ghezzi, author of this engaging and practical guide, insists that the power of the Holy Spirit — and only that power — is strong enough to overcome these deeply rooted and disheartening difficulties. Best of all, he shows how you can tap into the Spirit’s power now. Ghezzi, the author of many popular Catholic books (including Voices of the Saints), helps you see exactly what you’re up against in dealing with these problems. He details how you can and must be vigilant against temptations, and points the way for you to experience real freedom from evil influences.
His advice, which is firmly rooted in the wisdom of the saints, helps you gain the Spirit’s power both in your individual spiritual life and in your relationships. You’ll learn how to trust Jesus more and to control your thoughts — as well as how to let go of grudges and how to place your dealings with others on a firm Christian footing. Ghezzi’s forthright, Holy Spirit-centered approach gives you trustworthy, tested ways to gain the freedom that only God can give. Say goodbye to those nagging problems for good.
Facing Adversity with Grace: Lessons from the Saints:
What can we learn from the saints about adversity? How did they use their adversity as a means of growth rather than just as something to be endured? In this book, popular Catholic author Woodeene Koenig-Bricker offers an in-depth look at a host of saints and how they dealt with a particular type of suffering in their lives. From each saint we learn valuable lessons about the common trials that come with being human—for example, suffering from physical problems (St. Padre Pio), mental suffering (Blessed Mother Teresa), addictions (Venerable Matthew Talbot), physical disability (St. Alphonsus Liguori), marital discord (St. Rita of Cascia), divorce (St. Helena), prejudice (St. Joseph Bakhita), financial stress (St. Elizabeth Ann Seton), and old age (Blessed John Paul II). Each chapter ends with a prayer and a “For Consideration” section that helps readers view their own problems from a fresh perspective. An upbeat tone draws in the reader and helps them identify with the saints and their sufferings. Every story stands on its own and can be read in any order.
