Item description for Enjoy Your Precious Life: Spiritual Joy Through Faith and Will-Training by John T. Catoir...
Overview Enjoy Your Precious Life is the third volume of Father Catoir's popular trilogy of books on joy including Enjoy The Lord and God Delights In You. The series was written to help Christians understand that they have a vocation to live joyfully. The very idea of the "duty of delight" may seem daunting, and for some even beyond human strength, but with God all things are possible. In this final volume, the author goes beyond the material covered in the other two books to stress the faith issues involved in our relationship with God as they relate to our personal sense of joy. Spiritual Joy is Joy with a capital "J." It is a lasting awareness of God's life in us. As such, it is something the world cannot give. At the same time, it is an experience meant for all those who believe. How we grow in joy during times of doubt, fear, guilt and suffering are covered in Part One. Part Two suggests ways to pray for this joy. In Part Three we are shown how we can claim Christ's joy for our own through faith and will-training. It is the author's prayer that the reader will experience in the pages of this work a real sense of God's abiding presence with his gifts of love, peace, and especially joy.

Spiritual and Practical Enlightenment Dec 24, 2004
The ability to see life as worthwhile, engaging, meaningful and JOYFUL! This is what "Enjoy Your Precious Life" helps us to see. The writing style is very interesting and deep. Not boring, but light and at times humourous. It is the type of book that one can't put down. This book has helped me in my life, and I am sure that it will help others. Always be open to God's promptings, and happiness, fulfillment and JOY will be with us always!
