The Catholic Imagination PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Catholic Imagination free pdf Catholics live in an enchanted world: a world of statues and holy water, stained glass and votive candles, saints and religious medals, rosary beads and holy pictures. But these Catholic paraphernalia are merely hints of a deeper and more pervasive religious sensibility that inclines Catholics to see the Holy lurking in creation. The world of the Catholic is haunted by a sense that the objects, events, and persons of daily life are revelations of Grace. In this discussion of what is unique about the Catholic worldview and culture and what distinguishes it from Protestantism, Andrew Greeley examines the religious imagination that shapes Catholics' lives.
