Catherine Doherty shows how the security to which most people cling is mere illusion, but that God offers us an insecurity that leads to perfect security.
A Christian Vision for Unstable Times
“The security to which most people cling is mere illusion. God offers us an insecurity that leads to perfect security. His security begins when we start loving him with our whole heart, our whole mind, and our whole soul, and our neighbor as ourselves” — Catherine Doherty
Catherine Doherty was a realist whose life spanned most of the twentieth century. She saw clearly what happens when we live as if there were no God. She also knew what we could become through God’s grace. Beginning with personal conversion, she calls us to restore our lives and all creation to the Father’s loving will. Our love for God must permeate our whole life.
As love of God and others grows in your soul, a massive transformation takes place through suffering. This is the threshold of a mystery into which God gently leads you.
