MoreThanSurviveSmallMore Than Survive

By Fr. Frank Freitas

Three years ago in Are We There Yet?, Fr. Frank Freitas offered inspiring advice to help people discover how to become the person God is calling them to be. In More Than Survive, he follows up by proposing that, more than merely survive in an increasingly hectic world, God wants us to thrive. This needn't be a daunting challenge, he writes, but it does require the establishment of a firm Christian underpinning to guide us through our day-to-day lives.

This short book is boiled down from an interesting and at times incendiary interview of Cardinal Raymond Burke by French author Guillaume d’Alançon. Interesting in that it offers insight into the thoughts of a distinguished and highly influential Churchman. Incendiary in that it often seems d’Alançon is seeking to juxtapose the thought of Burke with that of Pope Francis in a way that may (and possibly seeks to) inflame divisions within the Church.
