Made for Heaven
Made for Heaven
Join Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR—founder of Corazón Puro—on a multimedia Lenten journey inspired by St. Francis. Begin the season with a vow of poverty and end at Easter with a heart free from the desert of sin and open to love, serve, and care for others.
Made for Heaven features stunning original art by Valerie Delgado of Pax.Valerie, along with daily meditations on a passage from scripture, reflection questions, prayer, and space for journaling and notetaking.
A life of simplicity and poverty orients you toward God’s love and reminds you that you are made for heaven. Torres says the best way to prepare yourself for that final destination is to live as true pilgrims who need to “travel lightly” and detach from earthly pleasures.
In six transformative weeks, you will learn how to allow the Holy Spirit to move in your heart through a new theme each week:
Week one: commit yourself to a Lenten vow of poverty and reflect on the story of Jesus being cast into the desert as you learn to make your life entirely about Christ;
Week two: be a witness to the Transfiguration and allow yourself to become transformed, letting your spiritual gifts shine forth;
Week three: accept the call to conversion and say yes to a life of simplicity and poverty as St. Joseph did;
Week four: let the healing power of God challenge you to become a vessel of mercy and a source of loving compassion to others;
Week five: learn how to pray with confidence and look beyond ourselves; and
Holy Week: experience a deep encounter with God through the ancient liturgy of the Church.
Made for Heaven is perfect for both individual and group use. Free companion videos and a downloadable leader’s guide are available at avemariapress.com. The book and other resources are also available in Spanish.
