"Liz Kelly's love of her Catholic faith is an inspiration. I highly recommend her wonderful book."
--Matthew Kelly, New York Times best-selling author of
The Rhythm of Life In May Crowning, Mass, and Merton , Liz Kelly, a thirty-something writer and jazz singer, eagerly shares her ardent love for the Catholic faith. While the beliefs of the church are important to Kelly, her passion is really ignited by the holy people and places, the beloved rituals, and the rich spiritual traditions of this living faith. She celebrates them here, with wit, affection, and candor.
Kelly has realized that "the litany of reasons to love being Catholic is extraordinary." These include every#65533;thing from the crucifix, kneelers, and Ash Wednesday to Flannery O'Connor, the Swiss Guard, and Tenebrae. Though she writes that, "Mine is not an extraordinary faith, so much as a faith growing a little messy, a little rough and subversive around the edges," it is a rich, inspiring faith, celebrated by a fresh, young Catholic voice.
