Holiness for Everyone: The Practical Spirituality of St. Josemaria Escriva
by Eric Sammons


Courtesy of Our Sunday Visitor, this week’s giveaway is a copy of Holiness for Everyone: The Practical Spirituality of St. Josemaria Escriva by Eric Sammons. If you want to achieve sanctity in the ordinary situations of life, this is the book you need. Here’s a snippet from my review:

“As in Who Is Jesus Christ?, Eric includes helpful end-of-chapter suggestions. Each chapter concludes with Read, Meditate, Pray, and Contemplate items which yield a lectio divina style reflection. In most book, I usually skip the end-of-chapter questions, but these provoked me, pushing me toward serious reflection.
If you want a more biographical introduction to St. Josemaria or Opus Dei, there are several great options (I especially recommend John Allen’s book, Opus Dei, or Scott Hahn’s spiritual memoir.) However, Eric’s book moves past biography into the realm of spiritual reading. He doesn’t just provide basic facts; he gives you a roadmap toward holiness, unveiling Escriva’s ‘ordinary path’ toward sanctity and inviting you down the Way.”

In order to win this week’s giveaway, leave a comment below answering this question:
