About the Book

Faith Burning With Hope is a personal document of a lover of the Catholic Church, painfully aware of how the message of Jesus is lost or distorted in twenty-first-century America. Starting with the teachings of Jesus, supplemented with the wisdom of Catholic theologians, the author envisions a church proclaiming forgiveness, acceptance, compassion, and love to a world permeated by a culture of fear and unaware that “grace is everywhere.” The author suggests that this basic Jesus-message contains avenues for moving beyond scandals and provides a new perspective for looking at controversial issues.
