The Catholic Writer's Guild awards its "Seal of Approval" to "Forgotten Truths to Set Faith Afire! Words to Challenge, Inspire and Instruct".

I was humbled and honored to be notified last week that the Catholic Writer's Guild has awarded its "Seal of Approval" to Forgotten Truths to Set Faith Afire! Words to Challenge, Inspire and Instruct.

"The SoA is not a critique of a work, but rather an assurance of its Catholicity and that neither the work nor its author go against the Mageristerium authority of the Catholic Church." CWG "evaluates for Catholicity, not for writing style or quality."

Other individuals who have read the book have offered their view on its content. Here are excerpts from what four readers have shared:

I am very impressed with this book and the author's commitment to writing about the Catholic Faith in a very informational and inspirational manner. I have no doubt that this book will help others on their Faith journeys.” Donna M. Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN host and author of numerous books, including Mother Teresa and Me.

 The volume is a generous compilation of some of the most impactful and challenging quotes and passages from saints and theologians throughout Catholic history. Each page is filled with powerful words to affirm, inspire and encourage Catholics and Christians in their faith.”  Anne Costa, author of Refresh Me, Lord and Lord I Hurt!

One thing I like about the book is that you can open it anywhere, read a passage and ponder on what you have read for either a few minutes or for however long you want.” Catherine Vallier, Lay Dominican

“This book is easy to read and difficult to put down…I am not a Catholic, but as a Christian I thoroughly enjoyed the book's treasure of Biblical quotes and those of religious leaders and others dating back centuries. It enhanced my own faith, as I'm sure it would that of any Christian.” Bernie Conklin, author of A Potpourri of Poetry

Have you read the book yet? What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to family and friends? If so, why? If something you have read in this book has touched your heart, or stirred your soul or reignited your faith, I would love to hear from you.
