Interior Freedom Week 1 of 5

From the back of the book:

Despite the most difficult situations that can restrain our physical movement, each person has deep inside a place of freedom that no external power can take away, because God himself is its source. A person wins inner freedom to the extent that he connects to its source–God himself–by practicing the virtues of faith, hope, and charity. These theological virtues are the center of the spiritual life. As the basis for interior growth, they become the source of the glorious freedom of the children of God.

Written in a simple and inviting style, this book seeks to liberate the heart and mind to enable it to live the true freedom to which God calls each one.
