Praise abounds for Father Roger Landry’s engaging book, Plan of Life: Habits to Help You Grow Closer to God. Heavy-hitters in the defense of the faith – like George Weigel and Mary Eberstadt – as well as influential Church leaders, such as Boston’s Cardinal O’Malley, New York’s Cardinal Dolan and Apostolic Nuncio to the U.N. Archbishop Auza, have joined together to recommend this charming guidebook for making a plan to better know, love and serve God.

In the book’s introduction, Landry recalls that “Saint John Paul II summed up the Church’s wisdom regarding attaining union with God by naming six pillars of ‘training in holiness’: grace, prayer, Sunday Mass, Confession, listening to the word of God, and proclaiming that word.” Making sure these pillars are present in our spiritual lives requires a genuine commitment to living a “plan of life.”
