Item description for The Catholic Heart Day by Day: Uplifting Stories for Courageous Living by Richard Beyer...
Overview "The Catholic Heart Day by Day" combines story and devotional writing that seeks to inspire faith. Not a book of theology or doctrine, the resource is about the living love, action, and heroism of everyday Christians.
Publishers Description "You are not alone on this pilgrimage of faith" These stories of grace and courage will find their way into your heart each morning. They may even influence the way that you treat others. They have the power to slowly transform your life over the course of the next year. The Catholic Heart is about the living love, action, and heroism of everyday Christians. Father Richard's stories will take you from Nazi Germany to the American Heartland to the Jordan River; from Pearl Harbor to the beaches at Normandy; from ancient Israel to the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin in Bosnia-Herzegovina. You will encounter some extraordinary Catholics including America's Elizabeth Ann Seton, Maximilian Kolbe, and Edith Stein. You will hear a child's words of trust in God, the last words of a martyred priest, the favorite prayer of Pope John Paul II, and the startling words of Mother Teresa to the U.S. Congress. As Father Richard chronicles the Catholic heart of faith, you will find your own faith rekindled.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Heart Day by Day?
This is an excellent quick daily read. Dec 10, 2009
There is a daily one page or less reading comprised of a heading, then a quote from the Bible, followed by a short story which illustrates/expands on the heading/Bible quote. For example. July 17--Deliver Me from Fear -- "And anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." (Mathew 10:38-39) This is followed by a story about a concentration camp during WWII. Sometimes, people are not able to connect with what God is saying in the Bible and how it applies to their everyday lives. For me, this is where the real strength of this book comes into play, as Father Beyers does an excellent job bringing together stories that truly illustrate the power of the Living God in our daily lives. I believe this book is appropriate for all ages.
