Getting the keys to the family car has been a symbol of independence ever since there were cars. You’re not a kid anymore, and you can make your own choices — speed, route, direction, destination. It’s a fantastic journey that can take you nearly anywhere, as long as you follow the signs.
That’s a lot like your spiritual life. You can take the wheel of your faith, get out there, and go. And just like a good road trip, your spiritual life can be full of adventure, joy, and exhilaration. But there are also signs to watch out for and hazards to avoid.

That same outpouring of self is found in Dorothy Day’s House of Hospitality, real-life reflections on the beginning of the Catholic Worker Movement. Finally, at the heart of St. Francis’ and Pope Francis’ teaching is that embracing poverty can lead to healing and restoration in a broken world. Three important works all Catholics should read.
