Reviews

"I bought this book in college soon after I converted to Catholicism, and although years later I have read other relationship books, this one was the first. The reason I bought it is because as a new convert I felt like I needed some Catholic advice about such a serious subject. This book did not disappoint, and frankly this book changed my life. After reading it I started to implement changes in my dating habits. Not only changes in my habits, but my whole attitude and mindset about dating changed as well. It helped me to fully understand and appreciate the Holy Sacrament of Marriage in a way no one had ever taught me before. What a wake-up call, and what a blessing! After reading (and re-reading) the book I started to live a more God-centered dating life, and very soon after I met the man God meant for me to be with! We are now married and joyfully awaiting the arrival of our first child. Anyone who is considering the vocation of marriage should read this book and seriously ponder its advice. This is certainly one of the best books for any serious-minded young (and not-so-young) Catholic to read.

 

I am a success story of a young woman who read this book and reaped the benefits of the wisdom it had to offer.

 

Like I said before, this book changed my life, Deo Gratias!"

OVERCOMING SINFUL ANGER How to Master Your Emotions and Bring Peace to Your Life

by Rev. T. G. Morrow

 

When St. Jane Francis de Chantal encouraged St. Francis de Sales to be a bit angrier over the opposition they were facing in starting their religious order, he replied, Would you have me lose in a quarter hour what has taken me twenty years hard work to acquire?

St. Francis de Sales had quite a temper when he was young. But over time he learned to convert his angry feelings into virtuous action. He knew that anger never leads to happiness. Worse, it causes tremendous harm to our relationship with God.

In these pages, Fr. Morrow shows you how to pull the rug out from beneath your anger and reclaim a life of peace and grace. You'll come to understand the root causes of angry behavior, ways to heal painful memories, and how to deal well with your hurts and humiliations.

You're not likely to overcome blowups and anxiety through willpower alone. You need tools that help you cultivate the habits that lead to virtuous action. You ll discover here simple ways to influence your behavior, control your impulses, and rebuild tattered relationships.

When you follow the simple advice offered in these pages, you'll be surprised at how quickly you're giving up all desire for revenge, forgiving those who hurt you, and finding peace in your life. You'll also learn:

  • The difference between righteous and sinful anger.
  • Why saying Well, that's just the way I am could cost you your soul.
  • The three root causes of every angry outburst
  • The five stages of healing hurtful memories.
  • How to discipline an angry child
  • The three actions every Christian MUST take to overcome sinful anger.

Achieving Chastity in A Pornographic World

Click here to see full text.

 

Practical methods to break free from unchaste behavior and truly find peace.

 

Reviews

 

This little book gives excellent suggestions for effectively overcoming sexual temptations and especially addictions. Although written from a spiritual point of view, it is consistent with the best thinking in contemporary cognitive therapy approaches. It effectively brings spirituality and morality together with the best contemporary psychological thinking.

    –Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR

 

Father Thomas Morrow, author of Christian Courtship in an Oversexed World, has come through with another very helpful book. After describing the problem in his introduction, Father Morrow then makes superb use of the thought of John Paul II in his pre-papal book Love and Responsibility and in his marvelous Wednesday audiences on The Theology of the Body to help his readers come to see the tremendous values of the virtue of chastity, which enables us to come into possession of our sexual desires and not be possessed by them so that we can give ourselves away to others in love.

This eminently practical book, rooted in Father Morrow's pastoral experience especially with homosexually oriented persons seeking to be chaste, is filled with useful advice. To overcome sexual addictions one needs God's grace, prayer, good counseling, and a good support group like the Courage group for homosexually inclined individuals.

Morrow's book should give persons who are sexually addicted great hope and those who love and advise them wonderful insights. It is warmly recommended.
