Our Sunday Visitor, 176 pages
Stress is a way of life for most of us as we face life’s myriad challenges. Greg Willits can’t take away our “knots” of anxiety, but he does suggest how we can find peace in the midst of our worries through self-mastery.
Sharing his own experiences, Willits offers advice on fostering healthy habits, dealing with stressful situations, and identifying blessings amid our difficulties. Above all, he counsels habits of praying, seeking God’s will, maintaining faith and hope, and frequenting the sacrament of Reconciliation.
Unsurprisingly, he recommends a particular novena — to Mary, Undoer of Knots, a favorite devotion of Pope Francis.
The Willits relate new ways to make the New Evangelization part of your daily living . . .
The New Evangelization and You
Servant Books, 2013
160 pages, $16.99 paperback
If you’re looking for a good summer read that jives with Legatus’ mission, this is it. Subtitled Be Not Afraid, Willits’ book encourages Catholics first to know their faith, and then to live it and share it authentically with others. That should sound very familiar to all members of Legatus.
Many Catholics have heard of the New Evangelization, but don’t know what it means or how to apply it in their lives. Willits explains the New Evangelization and examines realistic ways to make it a part of one’s daily living. His book will light a fire under readers and inspire an active response of faith.
