God intends nothing less than sainthood for you!

The early Church held that all believers could achieve holiness. Over time this conviction was largely forgotten. Sainthood seemed to be an honor only intended for a select few among the priests and religious.

Eric Sammons tells how twentieth century Spanish priest—and canonized saint—Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei, recovered the message of the universal call to holiness. Declared “the saint of ordinary life” by Pope John Paul II, St. Josemaría developed a spirituality directed toward the sanctity of every man and woman. His legacy is the belief that each of us can, by God’s grace, achieve holiness through the course of our ordinary life and work.

The heart of Sammons’ practical guide to the spiritual life is a detailed examination of the steps in St. Josemaría’s thoughtful plan for building a saintly life in spite of your hectic work and home life – in a world filled with distractions and temptations.

Strive for your own personal holiness as you implement your daily plan to:
• Be a Contemplative in the Midst of a Busy World
• Live a Life of Prayer
• Recognize the Presence of God
• Make a Plan of Life
• Make Your Work a Way to Heaven

Holiness for Everyone! will inspire you as it sets your feet on the path to sainthood.

Who is Jesus Christ?

Unlocking the Mystery in the Gospel of Matthew

By Eric Sammons, Foreword by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R.

Christ's contemporaries ascribed to him many names and titles, as we see recorded in the New Testament. Each one tells us something different about who Jesus is. With references from Church Fathers, the saints and Doctors of the Church, Sammons unlocks the multiple dimensions of Christ so we may better recognize and welcome Him in our lives.
Published by Our Sunday Visitor

"Who is Jesus Christ? Unlocking the Mystery in the Gospel of Matthew is a very serious and well-thought-out attempt to teach us once again just who is being proclaimed in the Gospel of Saint Matthew. It is a slow, steady journey through this Gospel, a journey that pauses over and over again to examine in a thoughtful and prayerful way the names and titles given to our Lord in this Gospel... Working through this book is like taking a course by a well informed and highly intelligent teacher. At the same time it is like making a retreat led by a prayerful and spiritual retreat master."
- Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R.
