is quickly becoming the most read Catholic book of our times. From the
spellbinding opening story, Kelly grips his readers and takes them on a
life-changing journey to rediscover the genius of Catholicism.
“There are many – Catholics and non-Catholics – who do not
want to rediscover Catholicism. Others
think that religion, and Catholicism in particular, has no place in the modern
context. I will admit that Catholicism
is old. But let me ask you a
question. If you found a really old
treasure map would you throw it away just because it was old? No. The age of a treasure map doesn’t
matter. What matters is whether or not
it leads to treasure. Catholicism is a
treasure map. It may be old, but it
still leads to treasure. Let’s
rediscover it together… and help others to do the same.”
“God always wants our future to be bigger than our
past. Not equal to our past – bigger,
better, brighter and more significant.
God wants your future and my future, and the future of the Church, to be
bigger than the past. It is this bigger
future that we need to start to envision and imagine.”
“One of the most incredible abilities God has given the
human person is the ability to dream. We
are able to look into the future and imagine something better than it is today,
and then return to the present and work to make that richly imagined future a
reality. Who is doing this for the
Church? Together, let’s start to envision an incredible future for the Church.”
