The Family that Overtook Christ Study Edition

The Family that Overtook Christ Study Edition

In addition to its value as Cistercian history and as an adult study on the virtuous life, this book is also an excellent read for young adults who are preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. "By the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are . . . more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed" (CCC, no. 1285). In this exciting chronicle of the life of twelfth-century knights, we can learn much about defending and spreading the faith in true soldier-like fashion. Here, we have an entire family of nine saints who lay before us their individual means of achieving intimate union with Christ. Learn with the Fontaines family how to supernaturalize the natural, develop a God-consciousness, and attain sanctity by being yourself. Perfect for high-school read-aloud, this new study edition has over 250 footnotes for increased comprehension and provides discussion/meditation points to promote the art of spiritual conversation. The appendix lists formulas of Catholic doctrine that are essential for confirmands not only to know but also to incorporate into their own spiritual lives. This engaging book provides many excellent lessons in sanctity for anyone interested in living the "authentic Christian life."
