These stories of Catholic faith will inspire you to live courageously. May these stories of grace and courage find their way into your heart each morning. May they influence the way that you treat others. They have the power to slowly transform your life over the course of the next year. A Catholic Heart Day by Day offers living love, inspiring action, and everday heroism. Father Richard's stories will take you from Nazi Germany to the American Heartland to the Jordan River, from Pearl Harbor to the beaches at Normandy, from ancient Israel to apparitions of the Blessed Virgin in Bosnia-Herzegovina. You will encounter extraordinary Catholics, including St. Edith Stein, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and America's St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. You will hear a child's words of trust in God, the last words of a martyred priest, the favorite prayer of Pope John Paul II, and the startling words of Mother Teresa to the U.S. Congress.
