A Passionate Adventure: Living the Catholic Faith Today offers a wonderful opportunity for English-speaking readers to learn more about the Servant of God Albino Luciani, Pope John Paul I, the short-lived and too little remembered Pope, whose smile and warmth are echoed again in Pope Francis.
Along with a short biography, the book contains a large selection of English translations of Luciani’s sermons, talks and articles on the faith from 1959 to 1978, the time when he was Bishop of Vittorio Veneto and Patriarch of Venice.
The future Pope explains the various aspects of the faith in a clear and vivid style, responding to the challenges that secularism presented to the faith of Catholics in his day, which are remarkably similar to the ones we face today. He shows how living the faith each day is a “passionate adventure” for someone in love with God.
