New Books by Diocesan Authors
August 10, 2023
Article excerpt: Why did you write this book? "I want to help parents raise saints. We are living in a moment of great confusion, when even many Catholics don’t understand who they are and why they were made; that they were born at a particular time and place, surrounded by the people in their lives, for a particular purpose; that at critical times in their lives, doing God’s will means choosing Christ over the comforts and approval of the world; and that there is beauty and honor in suffering and sacrificing for Christ."

Show summary: In the battle for our children’s souls, Catholic parents have a key advantage over the world: our children were made for heaven. God willed us to exist now—in a world that celebrates sin as virtue and punishes Christians as “haters”—as part of His merciful plan. Unbreakable helps Catholic parents raise strong children able to resist the soul-endangering temptation to “get along” to “get ahead” in the world.
