Staying Faithful Today

I recently read the book Staying Faithful Today by Fr. Alfred McBride.  This books uses a combination of short personal stories, Scripture passages and discussion questions to help show how you can maintain fidelity in our secular society.

Fr. McBride describes fidelity as ". . .keeping your promises to God, family, and flag."  Each of the chapters in this book touch on fidelity in a different aspect of your life. He discusses being faithful to your community,your parish,  your friends, yourself, your spouse.

This book is a very quick read.  I believe you would gain the most from this book if it is read in a group format.  Each chapter contains discussion questions and scripture meditations that would be best shared with a group but you can still gain much from the book if you read it and complete the exercises alone.

This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Staying Faithful Today - To God, Ourselves, One An. They are also a great source for serenity prayer and baptism gifts.
