Probably Fr. Faber's greatest book. Includes The Ruling Passion, Human Respect, The Right View of Our Faults, Abiding Sorrow for Sin, Scruples, Spiritual Idleness, True Signs of Progress in the Spiritual Life, and more--27 chapters in all! Typical of Fr. Faber's keen insight into all matters bearing on True Religion. Shows that growth in holiness is the issue of life and deserves at least as much intelligent attention as our physical life!
Father Frederick Faber was a noted English hymn writer and theologian, who converted from Anglicanism to the Catholic priesthood. His best-known work is Faith of Our Fathers. Though he was a Roman Catholic writing for fellow Catholics at that point, many of his hymns today are sung by Protestant congregations.
