This is an awesome little book!! It really could be a handbook on life for Catholics.
The chapters are short but power packed with balanced wisdom and advice on such subjects like confession, sadness, zeal, prayer, temptations, interior peace, liberty of spirit and many others.
Many of the excerpts are from St. Francis de Sales….one of my very favorite saints to read!!
This is one book that has been invaluable to me throughout the daily grind, when struggles may abound. It gives a person the peace of knowing that God is ever there to help. He is merciful and kind.
It also gives logical and practical advice for those who may tend toward scruples, or towards sadness….those with more of a melancholic temperament.
You won’t be disappointed if you purchase this book and it finds its little nook on your bookshelf! 🙂
From the Back of the Book:
Light and Peace is a handbook for getting to Heaven – a short and practical course in proper Christian living that covers all the important aspects of our religious duties.
Far and away the telling feature of this little book is its immense common sense and good advice.
Light and Peace shows that perfecting one’s self is not a complicated task, but one which requires good, practical thinking and a knowledge of the task at hand – in short, “Light” on the path – which is what this book is.
Thereafter the result one’s knowing where he is going spiritually and how best to achieve this end is “Peace”, that peace which Our Lord promised and which the world cannot give.
