Item description for The Meaning of Life: The Catholic Answer by Alban Goodier...
Overview No matter how good your intentions are, you can easily get so caught up in the things of this world that you forget God. But according to the insightful Jesuit priest Fr. Alban Goodier, the worldly man "knows in his heart, without a doubt, that he is a traitor to his human nature." With his book The Meaning of Life, you can finally make the searching examination of your own life that you must make if you want to stay on the path to Jesus Christ. Fr. Goodier helps you hear the voice of your own conscience, which will speak the truth to you about your life, your priorities, and your relationship with God. He calls you to take a hard look at the way you're living now, and to take responsibility for the choices you've made - and will make. The choice you need to make now, he explains, is the choice to live for God rather than for yourself. To help you fully and unreservedly choose God, Fr. Goodier explains how living an innocent life will ennoble you and bring you great rewards. Even better, he details all the ways in which you can find happiness by rising above the concerns of this world - yes, even amid the cares and duties of your daily life! He shows how the very fact of God's existence gives meaning to your life in a way that worldly possessions or success never can. Nor is that all. Fr. Goodier gives you practical strategies you can use to set your life on a wholeheartedly spiritual course. He demonstrates how the saints prove that you can overcome weakness and temptation, and directs you to your best sources of real help as you strive to live for God in this world. Uncompromising, incisive, and comprehensive, The Meaning of Life is a much-needed wake-up call for every comfortable Christian!
