In Holiness for Everyone, Eric Sammons organizes the wisdom of St. Josemaria Escriva into an action plan for living out holiness in your everyday life. The goal: to foster God’s grace within you so that you can be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ.

In page after page, Eric Sammons unpacks St. Josemaria’s spirituality and offers you practical reflections and suggestions for meditation, oral prayer, and contemplation. With this book as your guide, you’ll soon make a habit of powerful spiritual exercises that will assist you in advancing in holiness and keeping Christ at “the pinnacle of all activities.”
