“Fr. Molinié brings us back to the essentials of the Gospel: the simplicity of following Christ and the grandeur of God’s plan for us. Every Catholic will find in this book clarity, rejuvenation, and wisdom.” —Fr. Alexander Wiseman, SSPX

The Courage to Be Afraid is remarkably different from other spiritual
books. It is a tour de force that examines many aspects of the Christian
life, yet always returning to a simple, powerful theme: we have to let
God act. Fr. Molinié addresses himself to us, children of the modern
world, in order to recall us forcefully to what never changes, no matter
the state of things: the divine life is in us, and will transform us if we
surrender to it. “God’s love is a consuming fire...”

Some of the themes in the book include:
Nature and grace
Combat between pride and humility
Development and stages of the spiritual life
Suffering and the Mystery of God

“If, in the face of this world whose values are crumbling, you look
feverishly and anxiously for what must be done, you have not understood
that God wants to be the only One who saves us: His glory is at stake.
When we rely on action or on natural qualities, we attack the glory of
God....This secret is the Trinitarian life, and to enter into it, we must live
a life where we lose our footing... this is the whole savor of the mystical
life.”—Fr. Marie-Dominique Molinié, O.P.
