The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic by Matthew Kelly
WHAT FOUR THINGS DID… MOTHER TERESA, FRANCIS OF ASSISI, JOHN PAUL II, THERESE OF LISIEUX , and IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA ALL HAVE IN COMMON?
THEY ALL PRACTICED THE FOUR SIGNS! Four things make the difference between highly engaged Catholics and disengaged Catholics:
1. Prayer – a daily commitment to prayer. Have a time, place, and structure to prayer habit.
2. Study – be a continuous learner. Approach issues with investigation as to why the Church teach what she teaches.
3. Generosity – be generous. Bring God’s love to the world through a spirit of service, time, talent, and treasure.
4. Evangelization – invite others to grow spiritually by sharing the love of God with them.
“Matthew Kelly has a once-in-a-generation ability to bring the genius of Catholicism to life for the average person. The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic is brilliantly simple and practical. Every Catholic in America should read this book!” -Allen Hunt, author of Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor.
As human beings we are constantly engaging and disengaging in everything we do. We engage and disengage at work, in marriage, as parents, in our quest for health and well-being, in personal finances, environmentally, politically, and, of course, we engage or disengage spiritually.
If you walk into any Catholic church next Sunday and look around, you will discover that some people are highly engaged, others are massively disengaged, and the majority are somewhere in between. Why? What is the difference between highly engaged Catholics and disengaged Catholics?
Answering this question is essential to the future of the Catholic Church. If we truly want to engage Catholics and reinvigorate parish life, we must first discover what drives engagement among Catholics. Matthew Kelly explores this question in his groundbreaking new book, and the simplicity of what he discovers will amaze you.
Whether you are ready to let God take your spiritual life to the next level or want to help reinvigorate your parish, The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic promises to take you on a journey that will help you live out the genius of Catholicism in your everyday life.
The central idea in this book should change the way we live our faith and the way we teach our faith. This book is a game changer.
Matthew Kelly is a New York Times best-selling author of sixteen books, an internationally acclaimed speaker, and a business consultant to some of the world’s largest and most admired companies. In Catholic circles he is perhaps best known for his book Rediscover Catholicism, which is the most read Catholic book of our times.
