Fr Benedict's latest.

It's not that I want to advertise a publisher and boost his sales, but that I do want to recommend this book - Fr Benedict Groeschel's "The Virtue Driven Life". I'm reading it right now and I love the word "driven" in its title. The virtues are the engine of the person, these are what drive us and, since the virtues are so neglected today, one wonders what it is that drives people! Fr Benedict makes a superb description and re-animation of the virtues - our inner motor which drives real human life. After all, the virtues are the human complement to grace. This book is top banana for Christmas/New Year reading whether you find it in your Christmas stocking or buy it on-line. Perhaps you too are reading it right now. What do you think? Fr Richard.
