A Godly Humanism
Full Product Description
Sign-posting his conversation by the milestones of his own spiritual and intellectual journey, Cardinal George invites us to view the Church and her history in ways that go beyond the categories of politics--through which we find merely human initiative, contrivance, and adjustment--and rather to see the initiative as God's first and foremost. God is the non-stop giver, we are non-stop recipients of his gifts, and the recent popes, no less than the Father of the Church, have made every e ort to make us aware of the graces--that is, of the unearned benefits--that God confers on us as Catholics, as Christians, as believers, and simply as human persons. Pope Francis, he reminds us, contrasts human planning with God's providence, and this book is at once an exposition of that providence and a personal responseof gratitude for the way it has operated in one man's life. This persuasive book, imbued with the thoughts of profound thinkers from the Ancient world, from St.
Augustine and other Church fathers, and steeped in the wisdom of church teaching from earliest times through to the Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis, invitesand persuades the reader to reimagine the church as communion and the life of faith that we live as part of it.
