Back cover copy

There is a secret hidden in the gospels. It's a secret in the sense that it is something that cannot be learned from others. The gospels can only point to it until we get the point for ourselves. The stark and startling revelation is this: we exist and are held in being because God loves us. This means that when we try to understand ourselves, when we ask, "Who am I?" we must more accurately ask, "Whose am I?" I am, you are, we are, the outpouring of love. We are loved absolutely and unconditionally, or we would not exist. Spirituality is about letting this reality permeate every aspect of our being, psyche, understanding, and experience. The founder of the Redemptorists, Saint Alphonsus Liguori, wrote, "For God, heaven is the human heart." He recommended that we meditate on three concrete realities of God's love: the crib of Christ, the cross of Christ, and the Eucharist. However, these do little good until we look at them for ourselves. This book is an invitation to do just that. Ken Sedlak, C.Ss.R., is a Redemptorist priest serving at the Redemptorist Apostolic Center at St. Michael's in Old Town Chicago, Illinois. He has pondered these questions and more for the past 20 years and is cofounder of Pathways, which sponsors programs for young professionals seeking to integrate body, mind, and spirit. He is also on the core team of STILLPOINT, a contemplative outreach center.show more
