Catherine Doherty burned with love for God. In every word she spoke or wrote, she tried to quicken that love in the hearts of others.
In this revised and expanded edition of a Madonna House classic, we begin with the basics of our faith as Catherine communicated them — the Incarnation, the Mystical Body, the Eucharist, Our Lady, etc. — the School of Love.
As she often proclaimed, “No part of the Gospel is abstract.” In other words, without living our faith, putting flesh on the Gospel in daily life, those truths of faith lie fallow. With her unique charism of communicating how to “preach the Gospel with your life” she presents the Tools of Love, the ways to let the light of Christ shine through everyday life.
Let her exhilarating words, her fire of love, light a flame in your heart and soul!
About the Author, Catherine Doherty
Catherine Doherty used her heritage as a Russian Christian as a matrix for responding to the needs of Christian life and work in the modern world. Her own personal pilgrimage led her to be “poor with the poor Christ” in the slums of Toronto and in Harlem; and later to the establishing of the world-wide Madonna House Apostolate. A dedicated wife and mother, Catherine was also a prolific writer of hundreds of articles, a best-selling author of dozens of books, a renowned national speaker, and a pioneer of social justice. Catherine Doherty’s cause for canonization as a saint is now under consideration by the Catholic Church.
