ÔÇ£Test everything; hold fast to what is good; abstain from evil.ÔÇÖÔÇÖ 1 Thessalonians 5:21

The renowned Cardinal George Pell, formerly Archbishop of Sydney and recently appointed by Pope Francis as Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy at the Vatican, challenges readers with the admonition of Saint Paul to ÔÇ£test everythingÔÇØ. These powerful reflections consider some of the ultimate questions that confront us all: Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? What is the good we should do and the evil we should avoid?

Reaching out to youth, as well as to people of all ages, faiths, and experiences, Cardinal Pell uses an engaging style mixed with a keen Aussie wit. He writes as a seasoned story-teller, an expert historian, an insightful scholar, a patriot par excellence, and an outstanding Churchman.

His advice to all is credible, practical, and helpful: Search for genuine love. Do not follow the crowd. Remember to pray. He reminds Christians, ÔÇ£Every lover must be a fighter. . . . We know that evil will triumph if good people do nothing.ÔÇØ To those harboring doubts or tempted to disbelief he brings steadfast encouragement. ÔÇ£The Christian vision does not deceive,ÔÇØ he writes, ÔÇ£if it comes slowly, wait, for it will come without fail.ÔÇØ

Among the many interesting topics he discusses are the Trinity, the meaning of suffering, the relationship between faith and science, the role of Christians in public life, and the enduring wisdom of Humanae Vitae.

Cardinal PellÔÇÖs overall message points us to the Cross of Christ as the unique and final measure of what it means to be human, and thus holy. Cardinal Pell, modern man of faith, vision and action, inspires readers to go deeper and to ÔÇ£test everythingÔÇØ.
