Item description for How to Be Happy - How to Be Holy by P. Osullivan, Paul O'Sullivan & Op Fr Paul O'Sullivan...
Very few Catholic writers indeed can touch the minds and hearts of all Catholics-whatever their background -and Fr. Paul O'Sullivan happens to be one of these rare few. In How to Be Happy-How to Be Holy, Fr. O'Sullivan teaches all Christians about prayer: 1) how to pray, 2) how to derive immense benefits from prayer, and 3) how to enjoy the deep consolation of prayer. In the process, he focuses first on the profound meanings of our basic Catholic prayers: The Sign of the Cross, The Our Father, The Hail Mary, The Glory Be, The Apostles' Creed, The Morning Offering, The Confiteor, etc. Next follows a full and beautiful explanation of the Rosary and each of its Mysteries. Then he paints the wonders of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and finally he concludes on the power of ejaculations and the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. The most beautiful aspect of this consoling and moving book-as in fact of all Fr. O'Sullivan's writings-is his frequent use of lovely, short anecdotes from the lives of the Saints. And the principal value of this book is that it proves one need not be a saint to enjoy prayer and to derive great benefits from it. Every Catholic should own and read this charming book, for if ever a book were conceived and written to inspire people to pray, and to show them what great results and consolations are to be derived from prayer, it is Fr. O'Sullivan's How to Be Happy-How to Be Holy.

More About P. Osullivan, Paul O'Sullivan & Op Fr Paul O'Sullivan
Father Paul O'Sullivan, O.P., was born on February 7, 1871. After studying in Dublin, he went on to Rome, where he was ordained a Dominican. He then pursued a Lectorate degree for theology, which in turn prepared him for his future career in writing simple, profound books and preaching to the faithful. He is the author of How to Be Happy, All About the Angels, The Wonders of the Mass, Read Me or Rue It, An Easy Way to Become a Saint, and The Secret of Confession. Father O'Sullivan also founded the "Catholic Printing Press" and established the Rosary Association, one of several associations he created with the Church's permission. He wrote on and had a great devotion to St. Philomena as well. He died in 1958, on the Feast of the Presentation.

Interesting book Dec 31, 2000
Father O'Sullivan briefly goes through popular prayers and their powers such as the Sign of the Cross, the Our Father, the Hail Mary, the Creed, the Gloria Patri, etc. His meditations for the Rosary are some good ones that I'm going to use. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because he repeats some things that he covers in other books of his.
