50 Reasons I Love Being Catholic


Winner of a 2007 Catholic Press Association Award! —First Place, Popular presentation of the Catholic faith

There are so many reasons to love being Catholic, and thirty-something Liz Kelly—a successful writer and jazz singer—eagerly shares those reasons in May Crowning, Mass, and Merton. Kelly says, “Mine is not an extraordinary faith . . . but the litany of reasons to love being Catholic is extraordinary.” Kelly lists 50 reasons to embrace the Catholic faith, including daily Mass, kneelers in church, and the crucifix. With wit and great affection, covering everything from Michelangelo’s creation frescoes to Pope John Paul II, this lay Catholic reminds us all why the Catholic faith is so special.
