Living the Sacraments Now Available in Spanish!

Vivir los sacramentos book cover

I was excited when my book, Living the Sacraments: Finding God at the Intersection of Heaven and Earth, was published last year, and I was excited again when I learned that the book had received an award. Now, I’m excited yet again to announce that the book is available in Spanish!

Introducing: Vivir los sacramentos: Encontrar a Dios en la intersección de cielo y tierra

Here’s the description in Spanish:

Demasiados católicos ven los sacramentos como ritos de iniciación aislados y desconectados de la vida cotidiana, en lugar de verlos como puertas de entrada a una relación gratificante con Dios. Este malentendido aleja a los católicos de la esencia de su vitalidad espiritual y hace que la Iglesia sea menos relevante para su experiencia.

En Vivir los sacramentos Joe Paprocki desarrolla este aspecto fundamental de la vida católica con su estilo amable, práctico y accesible. Nos presenta los sacramentos como un camino espiritual cuyo poder y gracia abren nuestro corazón al encuentro continuo con Dios. Al invitarnos a profundizar en el misterio de cómo Dios se nos revela a través de los sacramentos, enseñarnos la esencia de cada sacramento de forma amena e invitarnos a ser reflejo de la imagen divina de Dios, Paprocki nos muestra que los sacramentos nos permiten sentir la presencia de Dios en los ritos de la Iglesia y a través de experiencias tangibles en nuestra vida diaria. Somos llamados no solo a recibir los sacramentos, sino a vivirlos cada día.​

  1. Joe, this is Maureen Brennan, from St. John the Baptist Parish in Winfield, IL. We have not spoken in a while, but I wanted to say-AWESOME that you have done Living the Sacraments in Spanish. I am very interested in offering a night of formation for our Spanish Catechists-as we do with the East/West DuPage Deaneries. St. John’s would be willing to host. Any speaker ideas? And how much for the books in bulk???

    • HI Maureen…so good to hear from you! Thanks for your kind words and inquiry. I’ll respond via email and we can talk about the possibilities. -joe
