Author Mark Hart draws upon the beautiful scripture reading of the Beatitudes and brings today's youth Blessed Are The Bored In Spirit: A Young Catholic's Search for Meaning. Aimed directly at Catholic youth, this book is written from Mark's own experiences of going to Mass every week without ever truly understanding it, owning a Bible without reading it, and going to Confession without feeling repentant. In Chapter five Mark says, 'My image of God the Father, enthroned in heaven in flowing white robes and Birkenstock sandals, was overshadowed by my certainty that he didn't want me to have any fun. God was all about rules.

'Mark asks youth, 'Is that your experience of Catholicism? Is yours a faith of Thou Shalt Not? If so, forget about a dreary life of mindless obedience to rules you don't understand. It's time to enter into the transforming light of your Creator who invites you to live from the still center of his undying love.'

Throughout Blessed Are The Bored In Spirit, Mark's humorous and hard-hitting reflections drive home the point that God isn't calling the reader to be a good person-- someone who merely obeys the rules-- but a new person in Jesus Christ. This book will help the young Catholic in your life to grow in his or her Catholic faith beyond the sacrament of Confirmation and allow for continual connection with the faith. The paperback, Blessed Are The Bored In Spirit, measures 7.9 x 5.1 x 0.4 inches in 129 pages.
