Why Catholicism Matters: How Catholic Virtues Can Reshape Society in
the 21st Century: by Dr. William Donohue
Why Catholicism Matters offers a fresh and compelling look at how the teachings of the Catholic Church continue to provide the best guide for a healthy, happy society. Using the four cardinal virtues – prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance – as a springboard, this insightful book delves into the issues facing the Church and the broader community, and shows how the Church is at the cutting edge of providing solutions to those issues.
The main theme of his book is that every Catholic who desires to be active in the work of the Church (an apostolate), must have a robust and dedicated interior life. This interior life or “true life” is a familiarity with God and knowledge of his love through a devout life of prayer and participation in the sacramental life of the Church. It is a lesson in how to be a worker in the vineyard of the Lord. This is not a feel good flowery dissertation on the spiritual life, rather it is the meat and potatoes of what we need to be doing to grow in faith and relationship with God.
With his customary insight and reverence, Sheen interprets the Scripture and describes Christ not only in historical perspective but also in exciting and contemporary terms -- seeing in Christ's life both modern parallels and timeless lessons. His thoughtful, probing analysis provides new insight into well-known Gospel events.
