When Catholic Means Cosmic
David Richo, Best-selling author of When Catholic Means Cosmic and many other titles
Original Date: Thursday, October 22, 2015
When Catholic Means Cosmic argues that real faith finds its goal, as St. Thomas Aquinas states, not in adherence to beliefs or in devotional feelings, but in generous and compassionate action. True faith in the gospel of Jesus is shown first of all in having and showing love for everyone. This introduces us to the bigness of our faith since it shows it to be about universal love. In this way, faith is a driving force of our evolution as connected beings. When Catholic Means Cosmic presents a liberated Catholicismone that is about its values, assets, and limitations. While some people have divided religion from spirituality, this book now looks at reconnecting them sanely and exuberantly as it examines the marvels and challenges on our journey of discovering where we are going.]
