Seventeen Steps to Heaven: A Catholic Guide to Salvation - Leo J. Trese - Google Книги
A reprint of Fr. Trese's bestseller, "Everyman's Road to Heaven," this work successfully applies the catholic doctrines elucidated in Trese's "The Faith Explained" to daily catholic life. The short chapters no more than seven pages each! The advice and inspiration is better and more persuasive than most books of this nature, and many of his points will linger with you. For example, I've never forgotten Trese's words on the temptation to judge others: There should be a corresponding growth in our understanding of our neighbor and his problems.
This means that we shall be quicker to make allowances for the weaknesses and the mistakes of our fellowman. Words of harsh criticism seldom will be heard on our lips. We shall remember that, with our advantages, we are probably not doing as much as the person who, with his handicaps, seems to do much less. The man or woman I am tempted to condemn may stand far higher in God's eyes than I do. We do not know all the hidden influences that affect our neighbor's actions.
We do not know the kind of home and parents he may have had, the inadequancies of childhood training or the inner wounds he may have suffered. God knows all these things and takes them into account in His judgement. I do not know them; therefore I do not make myself the judge of my neighbor's virtue. Certainly I cannot condone. But, with compassion strong within me, my attitude toward the errant one will be that of pity rather than contempt. It will be a prayer for him, rather than abuse of him, that my mouth shall speak" Diverse in subject and filled with wisdom, this title warrants a spot in every Catholic's library Excellent overview of Catholic teachings on heaven and how to get there.
I enjoyed this book very much. It was accurate and detailed enough to keep me interested, but not so scholarly and detailed as to make it boring.
It was very easy to read and very informative. This was such a good read. Full of wit and good humor, this book is so hard to put down. A great to analyze our lives and what we can do to get to Heaven. My husband is dying from lung cancer.

Books by Leo J. Trivia About Seventeen Steps t No trivia or quizzes yet. Quotes from Seventeen Steps t Find your personal worth in your special calling from God Our Christian vocation carries responsibility, but it has its compensations, too. One such compensation is the wholesome feeling of personal worth that should be mine. If I am important to God, I am indeed an important person. Other people may not rate me very highly. My talents may be quite limited, and to those who know me, I may be just an average sort of person.
My job may be a relatively humble one, and I may be tempted to feel inferior as I see others around me making their mark in the world. Then I remember that money, position, and popularity - all the yardsticks by which the world measures success - are to God nothing more than a child's playthings. Eventually they must be cast aside and left behind. In the meantime, if I am in a state of grace and am following God's will as my road map through life, then every least action of mine has an everlasting value.
However lowly the world may esteem me, every breath I draw is precious to God. Speaking again in human terms, God made me because He needs me. There is something that has to be done that only I can do.
What greater personal worth could there be than to be needed by God? It matters little that I do not know the nature of my essential role in God's plan. It is enough to know that I am as valuable to God as the most distinguished person the world has ever acclaimed. This sense of personal worth is not pride. It is not even vanity. Pride consists in declaring my independence of God, as though I alone were responsible for whatever merit I possess. Vanity is simply a silly preoccupation with God's lesser natural gifts, such as looks or talents. It would not be humility - it would be a belittling of God's wisdom and goodness - to pretend that I do not amount to much, that my life is meaningless, that I would never have been missed if I had not been born.
It is quite true that apart from God I am nothing.

It is just as true that God's love has made me great. To admit this is to do simple justice to God. I must never surrender to the temptation to think, "I am no good. I am a failure. How awful it would be, after all the love God has expended and is expending on me, to brood and sorrow because I do not receive as much human love as I might wish. That would be about as silly as the complaint of a millionaire at not winning on the penny slot machine.
