Fr. Robert Garrity, JCL, STD (Assistant Professor of Theology) just published his new book: Resurrection Power: Spiritual Solutions for an Anxious Age. This book is the perfect companion to your Easter season celebrations.
Anyone who knows Fr. Bob also knows about “resurrection power,” but when did he first begin thinking about it? Many years ago, it turns out, when a stranger mentioned to him that Jesus’ resurrection is one of the most historically-proven events in human history. “That got me thinking–and prayer,” Fr. Bob said. “I began to research the reasonable grounds for faith in the resurrection of Jesus. Then my studies on the resurrection began to change me! Out of gratitude to God, I thought I should write down a few thoughts about the supreme importance of the resurrection of Jesus and its application to our lives today.”
Fr. Bob’s book uses examples from the Bible and from the lives of the saints to illustrate how resurrection power can help you overcome the anxieties of daily life in order to live with peace and joy.
“I have become in recent years much more aware of resurrection power as a very real help toward living life joyfully and to the full,” he said. “Resurrection power can help us to rise above difficulties or to live well with unresolvable challenges. … Spiritual renewal is an important need in today’s world, and I hope that this book can contribute toward this need.”
