While the official saints encourage us with their example, it falls to each believer to discern his or her own path, rather than trying to imitate something not meant for them. In pursuing this theme, Pope Francis addresses dangers in the Church from those who would transform the church into a museum piece or the possession of a select few. Pope Francis notes that the true path to holiness was offered by Christ in the Beatitudes - a virtual identity card for Christians. He applies these Gospel values in clear and challenging terms. He also outlines signs of holiness in the practice of patience and meekness, in boldness and passion, and especially in the presence of joy and a sense of humour. He thus reminds us of the essential connection between holiness and happiness in the deepest sense. The book includes an Afterword by James Martin, SJ, and is in 99pp.
