Abstract:

Presents the Catholic faith as a spiritually fulfilling, intellectually coherent answer to the most important human questions: Why are we here? What can we know of God? How should we live? The Catholic Passion is not an argument for the Catholic faith but a journey to the heart of it, a richly rewarding reflection on prayer, the Bible, sacraments, the Church, and God-made-human in Jesus Christ. These are mysteries, Scott concedes, but living mysteries that pulsate with meaning for us. "We see miracles every day," he writes. "We see lives changed by the encounter with the risen Jesus." Scott illuminates the Catholic mysteries with the insights of great Catholic figures of modern timesthe American writer Andre Dubus, the French composer Olivier Messiaen, the Chinese human rights activist Henry Wu, the French martyr Charles de Foucauld, the American reformer Dorothy Day, and others. He directs his keenly perceptive words to contemporary peoplereaders, young and old, who seek a faith that burns in the heart as it enlightens the mind.
