Synopsis:

In this spirited volume, Groome argues that even though Catholics span a spectrum of faith, they all share eight distinctive qualities. This volume probes those qualities and invites Catholics of all kinds to connect more deeply and wholeheartedly with their own culture and spirituality.

Synopsis:

Renowned Catholic educator Thomas Groome has discovered that whether devout or alienated, reformist or traditionalist, Catholics share eight distinctive qualities. With ecumenical sensitivity and a voice refreshingly free of condescension, "What Makes Us Catholic" draws upon the core convictions of contemporary Catholic Christianity and its rich tradition to weave a way of believing that has universal appeal, offering a fresh horizon that nurtures spirituality for all.
