One of Saint Pius X's favorite books

Satan never rests from
setting traps along our path.

So the more we seek to win souls,
the more we risk losing our own.

That's why nearly a century ago,
the Trappist monk Jean-Baptiste
Chautard sat in the silence of his cell
and wrote this classic book.

It sat on the bedside of
St. Pius X . . .

. . . and has been praised by
Pope Benedict XV and countless
cardinals and bishops.

It's been read with gratitude
by hundreds of thousands of
busy parents, teachers, preachers,
catechists, and other Christians
working in the world.

You'll find here the wise
spiritual guidance you need
to live in the noise of the world
and win more souls for Christ.

Fr. Chautard explains how to avoid
self-righteousness and pride that
bring down successful apostles . . .

. . . and the indifference and
despair that cripple unsuccessful

Relying on the spiritual
wisdom of the greatest saints
and mystics, he shows you how
to achieve success in
your apostolic efforts.

Read this book and
you'll grow in holiness . . .

. . . and you'll lead ever
more souls to Christ.

St. Francis de Sales carried a
copy of this book in his pocket for 18 years!

Its wisdom formed St. Francis's soul, and it helped him become one of the Church's greatest saints.

Now this book can do the same for you.

It's no longer fashionable to speak of the Christian life as a "battle," but there's actually no better way to describe the tug-of-war for your soul that's raging right now between the forces of light and darkness.

Here, Dom Lorenzo Scupoli helps you take your proper part in this spiritual battle so that you can win — decisively — the war for your soul.

This book has been loved by saints and sinners alike ever since it was written four hundred years ago. Why? Because it offers sensible advice to help you overcome spiritual obstacles and achieve spiritual perfection.

Best of all, Spiritual Combat doesn't just tell you what you ought to be doing in order to live a truly Christian life — it also shows you how to do it.

These directions include: 
  • Seven reflections to help you be sorry for sinning
  • Twelve ways to think about death — they'll help you live better today!
  • Prayer: seven ways to achieve its full benefits
  • What to do when prayer is dry and burdensome . . . or simply impossible
With wise spiritual guidance like this and much more, you'll soon be winning all your spiritual battles — battles that most people concede without a fight!
