This is a life-changing book. If you are seeking true fulfillment and happiness, then this book is for you. God seeks us and summons us in many and varied ways. One of the most endearing contributions of the Second Vatican Council was its clear reminder that we are call called by God to holiness. But this call doesn't (usually) come as a loud voice in the skies; we don't see visions in the night or hear voices in the tabernacle. Instead, God calls us through the people, events, and turning points in our daily lives.Embedded in a hundred such moments is the call to holiness -- and at the same time, to happiness. As Pope Francis has reminded us, that call is for everyone, not only church insiders or saints. It's a call, he says, to a "middle class of holiness," one that all of us can live.In The Art of Self-Giving Love, Bill Huebsch helps us learn how to hear that call to holiness, and also how to respond to it. The response we are called to make, he tells us, is always the same: it is to die to ourselves, to practice self-giving love, to join ourselves with the paschal mystery of Christ and shed our very selves. This self-giving love is the pathway to holiness; Huebsch helps us see it with clarity and embrace it as a lifestyle.
