And it is by far the longest. In fact, it is just slightly longer than the other three combined. I picked the first book up because it was promoted by TAN books in an email blast. They were promoting a bundle of books by Father Paul O&#039;Sullivan. I know I have seen the covers before. And based on when the books were first published maybe even back to the Catholic Book Stores of my youth. A few of the titles piqued my interest. And books form TAN never disappoint. But I was not read to buy the whole bundle. I should have. As I have now read 4 and already have a2 more in my to be read list. For those not familiar as I was not:\r\n\r\n“Fr. Paul Henry O&#039;Sullivan, O.P., S.T.L., P.G., E.D.M., was born in Tralee, Ireland in 1871 and died in Lisbon, Portugal in 1958.”\r\n\r\nThe description of this volume is:\r\n\r\n“Lovely short anecdotes from the lives of the Saints, showing us in a warm, encouraging and inspiring way the importance of prayer and the ease with which we can all derive great benefits therefrom, without yet being Saints ourselves. Covers the meaning of the basic Catholic prayers; plus, the Mysteries of the Rosary and the wonders of the Mass. Written for all and all should read it.”\r\n\r\nThe chapters in the book are:\r\n\r\nIntroduction: Read, Catholics, Read \r\n1. The Morning Offering \r\n2. Morning and Evening Prayers \r\n3. The Sign of the Cross \r\n4. The Our Father \r\n5. The Hail Mary \r\n6. The Power of the Hail Mary \r\n7. The Creed \r\n8. The Confiteor \r\n9. Hail Holy Queen \r\n10. The Gloria Patri \r\n11. The Rosary \r\n12. The Old Irish Woman’s Rosary \r\n13. The Popes and the Rosary \r\n14. Meditations on the Mysteries \r\n15. The Annunciation \r\n16. The Visitation \r\n17. The Birth of Our Lord \r\n18. The Presentation in the Temple \r\n19. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple \r\n20. The Sorrowful Mysteries \r\n21. The Agony of Jesus in the Garden \r\n22. The Scourging at the Pillar \r\n23. The Crowning with Thorns \r\n24. Christ Carrying His Cross \r\n25. Jesus Dies on the Cross \r\n26. A Lover of the Passion \r\n27. The Resurrection \r\n28. The Ascension \r\n29. The Descent of the Holy Ghost \r\n30. The Assumption \r\n31. The Coronation of Our Lady in Heaven \r\n32. The Wonders of Holy Mass \r\n33. What Is the Mass? \r\n34. The Joy of the Saints at Mass \r\n35. Priests, the Happiest of Men \r\n36. The Benefits of the Mass \r\n37. Priests, Angels on Earth \r\n38. How to Hear Mass with Profit \r\n39. The Value of Small Things \r\n40. Ejaculations \r\n41. What the Saints Say of Ejaculations \r\n42. Our Angel Guardians Introduction\r\n\r\nIn the introduction we are told that:\r\n\r\n“This booklet has in view to teach Christians: \r\na) How to pray. \r\nb) How to derive immense benefits from prayer. \r\nc) How to enjoy the deep consolation of prayer.”\r\n\r\nAnd also:\r\n\r\n“First of all, what is prayer and how should we pray?\r\n\r\nThe second great thought is that God has bound Himself most solemnly to hear our prayers.\r\n\r\nA third truth which we must bear in mind is that every prayer we say with reverence and trust, such as any ordinary Christian can say, gives God immense glory and pleasure.\r\n\r\nFourthly, our prayers obtain for us many important graces and blessings which we shall never get and never enjoy if we do not ask for them.\r\n\r\nFifthly, all men desire happiness, all men seek happiness, all men work for happiness.\r\n\r\nGod alone gives happiness, as God alone gives life and health. Happiness is God’s greatest gift, for it embraces what is best for us.”\r\n\r\nThis book is an excellent read. I believe that no matter who we are we can always improve our prayer life. It can develop, grow, and deepen. But Like anything else it will take, work, discipline, and effort. This volume is a fantastic tool for growing in the discipline of prayer, and through prayer to learn to be more happy, and to become more holy.\r\n\r\nMatthew Kelly often uses the line “Become the best version of yourself.” In his talks and in his books. I heard his say that he used to tell people to become saints, but that they would say that they did not think they could be saints. But when he switched to the best version they embraced it. This volume could easily be a precursor to much of Kelly’s writings. It would also be an excellent read for fans of Kelly’s works. \r\n\r\nThis book is well written. Father Paul draws extensively from the saints and church writings. One of the statements that really hit me was:\r\n\r\n“Prayer Is The Greatest Power,\r\nThe Greatest Consolation In The World”\r\n\r\nThis book can easily be read by anyone with a grammar school education. It is easy to digest. And can take a lifetime to apply. It is well written. It will encourage and challenge the reader.\r\n\r\nIt is another excellent volume from TAN Books and Father Paul O’Sullivan. I highly recommend it.\r\n","date":"Dec 26th 2023"},{"name":"Came B.","rating":"5","title":"How to be happy, How to be holy by ft.

Everyone wants to be happy. While not everyone wants to be holy, we all should—especially because this is the surest way to become happy. Christ Himself gave us very clear directions on how to be happy when He sat down and pronounced the Beatitudes. Since then, all the Saints have sought to follow the advice of their Divine Creator and Redeemer in the way of true joy.

In How to Be Happy; How to Be Holy, mainstay author Fr. Paul O'Sullivan offers guidance on how to achieve both sanctity and happiness, showing how the two go hand in hand. Providing lovely anecdotes from the lives of the Saints, Fr. O'Sullivan shows us in a warm, encouraging, and inspiring way the importance of prayer and the ease with which we can all derive great benefits therefrom. While not yet Saints ourselves, we will surely make it there following the advice of this little book. Among the contents are expositions on all the major prayers (and some lesser-known ones), explanations of the Mass, meditations on the mysteries of the Rosary, and more. This book is a pocket method for approaching heaven and thus true happiness.
