What's so great about being Catholic?
If you posed this question to the average Catholic, there’s a good chance they’d look a little puzzled and confess, “I don’t know. I’ve never really thought about it.”
Well, national best-selling author Michael Leach has thought about it—a lot! In Positively Catholic, Leach joyfully explores and explains 25 really good reasons for Catholics to love their faith, live their faith, and ultimately share their faith. From Mary to the Mass, from guardian angels to parish festivals, each chapter offers yet another often surprising reason for Catholics to rejoice—and rediscover their faith.
For anyone looking for reasons to be positive about, and encouraged by, the Catholic faith, Positively Catholic provides inspiring ideas that will lead to a stronger engagement with the faith as a whole, to a more passionate participation in the local parish, and to a heartfelt celebration of all things Catholic.
Michael Leach, dubbed "the dean of Catholic book publishing" by U.S. Catholic, recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Catholic Book Publishers Association. He is the author or editor of seven books, including the best seller I like Being Catholic.
