  • Seventeen Steps to Heaven: A Catholic Guide to Salvation
  • Learn why heaven is worth living, working, & suffering for!
  • 17 steps to making God the true center of your life
  • Do you truly belong to Christ? Four qualities you’ll have if you do

No matter how dedicated to Christ you are, familiarity can blunt your fervor and even make you less vigilant against sin. That’s why you need this warm guide! It reveals what you must do in order to begin living your life with God truly at the center of everything you do. With these seventeen steps, you’ll be able to prevent your love for God from being diminished by day-to-day pressures.

The author, Fr. Leo J. Trese, helps you to integrate into your actions the truths you profess. He gives you solid ways to look squarely at the reality and love of God and to root out contrary attachments in your life, showing you how to improve your confessions, pray more fervently, and let the fact of God’s love and the joys of Heaven inspire you to be holy.

Refreshingly unlike many modern writers, Fr. Trese speaks bluntly of Hell and of the devastating magnitude of sin. But don’t despair! He also discloses the remedies you can use to root out even the most entrenched sinful habits and attachments. Simple, profound, and insightful, this book is an effective and long-lasting antidote to the spiritual dry rot that infects the soul of even the most careful Catholics.

Make your salvation a vivifying reality as Fr. Trese shows you:

  • God’s anger: what the inspired writers of Scripture mean when they use this phrase — and how you can avoid this anger
  • What you must do if your confessions have become casual and thoughtless
  • “It’s only a venial sin”: why this is one of the saddest phrases you could ever speak
  • God’s judgment: how you can (and should) start getting ready now for this moment of divine truth
  • Suffering from strong temptations? Three things you can do today to overcome them
  • ...and more to help you attain a truly soul-nourishing relationship with God!

    Seventeen Steps To Heaven

    This book deserves a ten star rating. Father Leo Trese brought this book to life with every day language and examples to help guide us to live our lives in a state of grace. I've read many spiritual books but this one stands out among the rest. Starting by presenting sin, judgement, Heaven and Hell to inspire you to want to do better. Next, outlining how confession, Holy Communion and a good prayer life can be an assurance of God's salvation for us. Every Catholic should read this great book.

    Great book for helping to live God's will.

    Even though I became Catholic 15 years ago, I still feel like I am relatively new. So many things that I still don't understand. I feel like this book was great at getting to the point of it all: Making God my center and showing me how the Catholic Church can help to make that happen. I liked this book so much that I bought a copy for a friend!

    Another great book which will enlighten you about Sin, repentance, dying, and Heaven. Easy to read and you won't want to put it down.
