Holy Goals for Body & Soul - Catholic Shoppe USA

Holy Goals for Body & Soul


Hockey-playing Catholic bishop Thomas J. Paprocki has a message for teens and young adults: athletics and fitness provide daily ways to connect with God. Bishop Paprocki weaves his unique personal story with eight athletic topics and connects them with a path to wholeness.

Holy Goals for Body and Soul links lessons from the world of sports and fitness - especially the experiences of a Catholic bishop who plays ice hockey - with concrete ways to live a holy life. In Bishop Paprocki's view, everyone is called to holiness, which can be encountered anywhere: "I encounter holiness while training for a marathon. I encounter holiness during a workout at the health club." He explores eight sports-related topics to help the reader navigate a life of holiness:

1. Fear
2. Frustration
3. Failure
4. Fortitude
5. Faith
6. Friendship
7. Family
8. Fun
