When he reflected on his twenty-five years of speaking and writing, Matthew Kelly realized that his biggest inspiration continues to come from the many faithful men and women who support the Mission of Dynamic Catholic. He decided to send an email to all of these Ambassadors, asking for their answers to three questions:
- Why do you love being Catholic?
- What is your favorite memory as a Catholic?
- As a Catholic, what are your hopes for the future?
This book is the result of that rallying call. Compiled from thousands of answers, this collection is both inspirational and motivational.
The authors are people just like you—they’ve laughed, cried, suffered, and celebrated their way through all the ups and downs of life. Some have been Catholic all their lives; others have taken a longer route home. All, however, can speak to the amazing gift that the Catholic faith has been in their lives.
The collection of entries in Why I Love Being Catholic celebrates the best of the Catholic faith, highlights the everyday miracles taking place all around us, and reminds us that there are thousands of everyday heroes out there who dare to have big dreams for the Church. Even amidst struggles or an atheistic culture, holiness is possible and grace abounds.
The stories herein will remind you that the best of the Catholic Church provides us with every reason to live our lives with hope.
