Recovering Faith - Stories of Catholics Who Came Home
By Lorene Hanley Duquin. This book is a collection of stories of men and women brought up in the Catholic faith who, for various reasons, left the Church. Martin Sheen, an award winning actor, stopped attending Mass because his career took precedence in his life. A racial slur caused Clarence Thomas, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, to distance himself from the Church. The common thread for each of these stories is the longing, the pull of the Holy Spirit each person felt to return to the Catholic Church. In addition to the powerful personal testimonies shared, the book also provides thoughtful answers to topics pertinent to our Catholic faith, that will deepen your Catholic spirituality. Recovering Faith is a wonderful gift to invite a family member or friend who is away from the Church to return Home. Softcover, 201 pages.
