A Worthy Reception

Authored by Kelly Mantoan
Preliminary work by Thomas à Kempis
Edition: 1

'A Worthy Reception' pulls thirty chapters from the classic 'Imitation of Christ' by Thomas à Kempis to create a retreat that will prepare you to receive Our Lord in Holy Communion with greater reverence and humility. If you find yourself growing lukewarm in the faith, or struggling with the same sins time and time again, Kempis' words will help you shake off worldly distractions and push you towards a closer relationship with Christ. This 500 year old spiritual classic has inspired saints of all generations and now is presented in a short accessible retreat format that anyone can squeeze into their schedule, no pilgrimage required. Spend four days with these timeless words and discover what centuries of Christians have used to strengthen themselves against worldly distraction and sin, while cultivating a deeper love of Our Lord.

"This retreat offers a straightforward but compelling experience of Thomas a Kempis for anyone looking to deepen their spirituality. This retreat's simple, 4 day format is a great way to bring a more concrete faith in the day-to-day, or to step back and refocus on your own personal faith in times of dryness." -Christy Isinger, blogger 'Fountains of Home'

"A Worthy Reception is a powerful way to better prepare your soul to receive the grace God longs to give you through Confession and the Eucharist. The readings from Thomas a Kempis are soul deep, convicting, and altogether they have the potential to be inspiring and transformative for your spiritual life. If you're looking for a resource that is easy to use that can help renew your passion for holiness and love for the Lord, especially in the Sacraments, A Worthy Reception and an open heart will do just that." -Mary Haseltine, blogger 'Better Than Eden'"

"Kelly takes a retreat I was always too intimidated to try and made it approachable and doable for a busy pregnant mom. It felt accessible and incredibly uplifting!" - Nell O'Leary, blogger 'Whole Parenting Family'
