How do I find fulfillment in life? How do I obtain happiness? How do I fully become a man or woman? Despite a multitude of self-help books in recent years, these eternal questions have become increasingly urgent in today's directionless world.

Author Jacques Philippe provides some answers. In his new book, Called to Life, he explains that a complete and fulfilled life is much more assured when we stop trying to chart our own course, when we realize that we are essentially creatures called by God. He goes on to describe where and how these calls take place: the events of life, the Word of God in Scripture, and interior motions of the Holy Spirit. Learning to recognize and follow these calls is what leads to a happy and full life.

Called to Life includes a special section on how to read Sacred Scripture prayerfully (Lectio Divina), making this a timely source of inspiration and guidance following the recommendations of Pope Benedict XVI and the 2008 Synod of Bishops on the Word of God.

Prayer changes our lives. Through fruitful prayer, God freely graces us with the gifts of joy, peace, courage, and determination.

We can often find, however, that, despite our good intentions, prayer doesn’t come easily. We often have obstacles in our path—distractions from the outside or our own internal weaknesses—that keep us from praying or being faithful to our Christian commitment to Love.

Allow your heart to be guided gently by Fr. Jacques Philippe toward a joyous prayer life that feeds your soul and revitalizes your relationship with the Lord.
