Product Description

Celibacy is one of God s greatest gifts to the world ... and also one of the most misunderstood. With clear, insightful reflections, Fr. Apostoli provides a penetrating look at this valuable discipline based on his 40 years as a priest, spiritual director, and seminary teacher. Several bishop have made this highly acclaimed work required reading for their seminarians. He discusses: Why priestly sex abuse is not caused by celibacy Celibacy in the Old and New Testaments, as well throughout Church history Why so many in the secular world reject celibacy without truly knowing what they re rejecting How celibacy is a perfect expression of Christian love How celibacy can bring true, lasting happiness and joy The many fruits and gifts that come from being celibate Whether you are a young adult exploring a religious vocation, are already ordained, or are a member of the laity who wants to understand what the Church teaches and why, this is an important book for every Catholic to have. When God Asks for an Undivided Heart provides a sensitive, insightful look at the gift of consecrated celibacy. With his many years of experience in formation work and spiritual direction, Fr. Apostoli writes convincingly on this topic for the young adult considering the call to priesthood or religious life... The concept of an undivided heart as the best road to a happy and productive celibate life is one that needs to be reaffirmed, as Fr. Andrew has done. from the Foreword by Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR

HASH(0x9a0ccae0) out of 5 stars This book is the best I have read on the call to celibacy by ... Sept. 5 2014
By Muldoon - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is the best I have read on the call from God to a life of celibacy. If it were possible, I would place it in the hands of every seminarian, those considering the religious life, lay people who have discerned the call to give themselves entirely to God in consecrated life and also to every spiritual director. Thank you Father Apostoli for writing about the difficult questions one faces during the discernment process. Bless you!
