With Hearts Full of Joy: Following Christ the Redeemer

Quick Overview

Jesus lived a life of announcing the kingdom of God. Some people converted upon hearing his message and others rejected him. For centuries the Church has proclaimed that the salvation Christ won for us is a gift. But what have we done with that gift? How well do we understand it? How are we living it? With Hearts Full of Joy: Following Christ the Redeemer is a book of reflections and questions on the topic of "plentiful redemption," a theme that the Redemptorists, founded by St. Alphonsus Liguori, preached to rich and poor alike.

St. Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists, underwent tremendous conversion to know Christ the Redeemer. He learned that to love Christ required a conversion of mind and heart and undertook a lifestyle that would deepen his relationship to Jesus. His journey led him to walk away from a potentially lucrative career in law and embrace a lifestyle of poverty in service to the abandoned poor through preaching Christ's plentiful redemption. His legacy as a Doctor of the Church includes being the patron of confessors, the founder of what today is known as Moral Theology, and a man of deep prayer. With Hearts Full of Joy follows the arc of redemption as it begins with the Incarnation, Jesus' invitation to discipleship and his way of the kingdom of God, his death, crucifixion, and resurrection. Reading these reflections will help a person deepen God's offer of friendship and encourage the kind of conversion that leads to one's rebirth in Christ.
