A Faith That Frees
By: Richard G. Malloy
CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION AWARD WINNER: POPULAR PRESENTATION OF THE FAITH (2ND PLACE)
"If you were accused of being Catholic, is there enough evidence to convict you?"
That's a question Fr. Rick Malloy poses to his undergraduate students as well as to people in the pews. But he does more than challenge them: Fr. Rick clarifies what their faith really means, how it has the power to set them free, and how they can be a leaven in society and culture.
Fr. Malloy speaks to all Catholics who are neither ideologically "left" nor "right" but simply seeking to understand and live the gospel in a messy world of confusion, violence, and excess. He brings to life a Catholicism that does justice and a faith that forgives. He brings a positive and enthusiastic point of view that is more needed than ever.
