About Light And Leaven: The Challenge Of The Laity In The

Product Description Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas is one of the most courageous leaders in the Church, known for his outspoken support of unborn life, orthodox faith and morals, and reforming Catholic institutions. In Light and Leaven he offers a forthright perspective on the state of the Church today and calls on the lay faithful to meet its challenges boldly. Touching on topics including parish renewal, the state of Catholic education, the centrality of the Eucharist, the need for prayer and silence in a noisy and distracted age, and the battle between good and evil in the Church and world, Bishop Strickland's wise insights and evident love for souls will inspire and edify you. Review Bishop Joseph Strickland has penned a book that gives light in the darkness and hope for those feeling hopeless. Light and Leaven: The Challenge of the Laity in the Twenty-First Century serves as the lantern we need to shine through the fog. Bishop Strickland's love for the Church bleeds through in the pages of this book. Perhaps more importantly, so does his humility. With the heart of a shepherd, Strickland weighs in on these issues and more. He does so with a light touch and a huge helping of humility. At the same time, he doesn't pull any punches. --Pete Socks- The Catholic Stand Whether it's the 100,000 Catholics who live in East Texas or the broader Catholic faithful who follow him on Twitter, or those who can now read his bold perspectives in Light and Leaven, one thing is for sure, Bishop Strickland is unlike any bishop we have seen in decades. Readers of Light and Leaven will quickly learn that there has likely never been a bishop, since probably Bishop Fulton Sheen, who speaks so plainly on matters of faith and morals. This East Texas farm boy has gifted to the Catholic laity around the world what they have lacked for nearly a decade a shepherd. Read Light and Leaven to discover that despite the disappointment we have experienced in our Church, there is a light that remains and will not be overcome. --Lisa Wheeler, President, Carmel Communications, Co-producer, Unplanned About the Author Joseph E.
