God intends nothing less than sainthood for you!

The early Church held that all believers could achieve holiness. Over time, this conviction was largely forgotten. Sainthood seemed to be an honor only intended for a select few among the priests and religious.

Eric Sammons tells how twentieth century Spanish priest and canonized saint Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, recovered the message of the universal call to holiness. Declared the saint of ordinary life by Pope John Paul II, St. Josemaria developed a spirituality directed toward the sanctity of every man and woman. His legacy is the belief that each of us can, by God's grace, achieve holiness through the course of our ordinary life and work.

The heart of Sammons' practical guide to the spiritual life is a detailed examination of the steps in St. Josemaria's thoughtful plan for building a saintly life in spite of your hectic work and home life in a world filled with distractions and temptations.

Strive for your own personal holiness as you implement your daily plan to:
--Be a Contemplative in the Midst of a Busy World
--Live a Life of Prayer
--Recognize the Presence of God
--Make a Plan of Life
--Make Your Work a Way to Heaven

Holiness for Everyone will inspire you as it sets your feet on the path to sainthood.

"Eric Sammons shows that St. Josemaria has recovered the most powerful truth of classic Christianity and restated it in a way that is compelling for men and women of our time."
---From the Foreword by Scott Hahn

However, I am well versed in the fundamental way that St. Josemaria Escriva thinks about holiness and every day life thanks to the In Conversation with God series, which I have used for over a decade.
