Sacred Scriptures are full of examples of individuals who consider themselves too weak to do God's will. Think of the Apostles who lacked the courage to accompany Jesus to Calvary, despite everything they had seen and heard. We are all called to become saints in the kingdom of God, but we must be open to receiving His gracious gifts through faithful and humble hearts. This book is designed to help you grow in a new virtue each month as you journey with St. Lucy Filippini. Let her teach you the true meaning of justice, meekness, eutrapelia, and much, much more. The choice is yours: will you be like the Cowardly Lion, afraid of your shadow, or will you be triumphant with Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah?
Like most little girls, Coleen wanted a horse...but her parents said the backyard was too small. That opened a totally new world for her, one filled with books to read and stories to write. She now has two Master of Arts degrees, one from the University of Iowa in English literature and one from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in dogmatic theology, summa cum laude. Her professional background includes teaching English composition and literature courses at the college level for ten years and serving as an editor in the healthcare profession for fifteen years. Her first story, written at age seven, was about a hippopotamus. She has been writing ever since.
