Quiero Ser Santo

Augustine Institute

"Sean perfectos, como el Padre celestial es perfecto" (Mt 5, 48), es un eco de la petición que el Levítico hacía al pueblo judío en la antigüedad: "Sean santos, porque yo Yavéh, su Dios, soy un Dios santo" (Lev 11, 44-45).

Cuando Jesús o la Sagrada Escritura nos invita a esta perfección en el actuar o a la santidad a semejanza de nuestro Dios que nos ha creado a su imagen y semejanza (Gen 1, 26), inmediatamente nos salta a la mente, ¿es esto posible? ¿No es una encomienda desmesurada fuera del alcance de una persona promedio?

La santidad es una de las maneras en que el Dios del Antiguo Testamento se mostró para con su pueblo, aunque Israel siempre la interpretó como un distanciamiento, en Jesús es más bien el modo por el cual Dios nos transforma en criaturas semejantes a su Hijo.

La iglesia es Santa porque su fundador, Cristo, es Santo y porque el Espíritu Santo, su guía y sostén, es Santo. Los cristianos somos llamados a esta docilidad al Espíritu Santo para que se muestre al mundo la presencia del Señor que da al Espíritu Santificador.

¿Y quién ha sido dócil a ese plan en comunión con Jesús y fiel al Espíritu Santo? María, la siempre fiel y dócil a Dios. El Padre Ernesto María Caro, hace un recorrido en este proceso por el que María fue siempre la Llena de Gracia, la que dijo Sí al Señor, la primera que hizo "todo cuanto Jesús le dijo" (Jn 2,5).

Prayer Primer: Igniting a Fire Within

Prayer Primer: Igniting a Fire Within

Fr. Thomas Dubay, a renowned spiritual director and author, presents a profound and practical book on the most important of all human activities, communion with God. In this four-part work, Fr. Dubay addresses the questions of many lay people and provides answers on how to pray while still living in the world. He addresses essential questions on why we ought to pray, how we ought to pray, different types of prayer within the Church, and liturgical and family prayers with clarity and insight. The last section of the book addresses common questions from his experience as a spiritual director about types of prayer encountered outside of the Church, and how to use solid discernment with the guidance of the Church when encountering these things. Using foundation stones from the Bible, the Catechism, and the writings of the saints, Fr. Dubay builds a work to help beginners in prayer and encourage them on their ascent to God.

And how can we better understand—and work to heal—those divisions? 20 Answers: Protestantism gives you a perfect beginner’s guide to the historical roots of Protestantism, its liturgical and doctrinal flavors, and its impact on the evolution of global (and especially American) Christian culture.

Faith & Reason - Booklet

Faith & Reason - Booklet

Is faith reasonable?

What can we know about God through reason alone?

How can we make sense of Christian beliefs that seem to defy logic and science?

What can I say to people who claim that the God of the Bible is cruel and irrational?

We believe that God is one, and so is his truth. The mysteries he has revealed to the world, the teachings that his Church professes and safeguards, and the conclusions that we reach by the light of natural reason all harmonize and enrich each other. But in a world skeptical of faith and often too clouded by sentiment and sin to wield reason, it can seem that religious truth and rational truth must be enemies—or at least from different worlds. 20 Answers: Faith and Reason shows you how to restore the unity of truth that is our only basis for living a coherent life of the mind and of the soul, helping you tackle both secular skeptics and your own nagging doubts.
