Thirty steps to holiness — in just ten minutes a day!

Here’s a way you can make a retreat, even if you can’t tear yourself away from the demands of work and family.

Make your retreat anywhere!

These ten-minute meditations are perfect for bringing a retreat right into your home or workplace. Designed as a thirty-day program to lead you to greater love for God, these brief reflections give you guidance on how to get started on a more serious commitment to Christ, and how to deal with common challenges and obstacles that confront you along the way.

You’ll get practical directions for how to live in the world

Author F. Maucourant gives you here a plan of action for growing in holiness — one you can begin to implement in minutes, wherever you may happen to be. You’ll start right at the beginning, with directions on how to evaluate how well you’ve answered Christ’s call, and how much you live for Him in your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions.

After that, these meditations call you to recognize the most important truths: the love with which God created you, your value in God’s sight, and His love for you (especially as shown in the Eucharist). Then, once you’ve renewed your awareness of these great facts, Maucourant shows you how you can, in light of them, let Christ dwell in you and act in your soul more freely.

Once you have given yourself to Jesus in the ways this wise retreat master directs, he shows you how to turn to Jesus for direction, as well as how to rest in Him, to abandon yourself to His will, and to share your joys and sorrows with Him. At that point you’ll be ready for Maucourant’s final, stunning meditations that give you guidance about how you can let even your imperfections draw you closer to Jesus, and how you can prepare now for union with God in Heaven. This delightfully portable thirty-day retreat program will begin to transform your life on the very first day!

Each of these profound reflections comes with:

  • Special prayers for each day
  • A daily examination of conscience
  • A brief spiritual message to carry through the day

  • “A treasure trove for today’s Catholics.”
    Rev. Romanus Cessario, O.P.

    “A fine resource which can provide useful assistance for busy people
    who want to live the spiritual life more intensely and deeply.”
    Most Rev. John J. Myers, Bishop of Peoria
