The prophetic call of a modern fool for Christ.Learn why humility is the foundation of the spiritual journey, and how to become one forever with the humble, glorified Christ."Urodivoi" is a Russian word meaning 'holy foolishness', and in this book, inspired by her Russian upbringing and the words of St. Paul, Catherine Doherty expresses her calling to this aspect of Russian spirituality, and calls us to become fools for Christ.-- Touch the folly of the Cross--God's wisdom.-- Know the peace of a repentant heart.-- Receive courage to proclaim the Gospel with your life.The soul, totally in love with God and therefore humanity, is called to become a fool, one of the humiliati, despised, poor, rejected--like Christ. This fool has the courage to go anywhere to impart the Good News. Until the end of life the soul will preach the Gospel in every circumstance, becoming one forever with the glorified Christ, and in so doing will draw a multitude to the tenderness of the heart of God.We are invited to open the doors of our hearts to the Lord of Love, to the foolishness of the Cross, becoming a fool for the sake of Christ, even as he became a fool for our sake. "For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom."

When I logged on to the website for this small book, Urodivoi, I was surprised that there weren't any other reviews. It is a worthwhile book of essays written from the heart.

To be honest, when I ordered it, I hadn't read the description, only the title, and I thought it was going to be a book of stories about "Holy Fools," in the tradition of the Desert Fathers. I love those kinds of stories and had looked forward to a pleasant bit of edifying reading.

When the book arrived, I discovered that, instead, it is, as the cover says, "the prophetic call of a modern fool for Christ." The author, Catherine Doherty, calls for us all to become "fools for Christ." To recall that the fundamental truths of Christianity are a counter culture call to reject what so much of society values, and to turn to God. The chapters are very moving and I imagine she must have been a remarkable speaker.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. I am going to read it again slowly for lent this year. I don't think an earnest reader could leave it without learning a great deal.

This is a very good introduction for Western Christians to the whole Eastern concept of the "Fool for Christ".

If this book sparks your interest, your next step might be:
Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond
(Oxford Studies in Byzantium)
by: Sergey A. Ivanov, Simon Franklin

Which gives you an in depth study from the Orthodox point of view where Holy Fools are held in the highest esteem among the saints.
St. Francis would be considered to be "quite mellow" when compared to some of the other Fools for Christ.

For details about the lives of specific saints, you need to look into the biography of each saint (hagiography).
These are either written individually or collectively.

What a fabulous book & A DIRE WAKE UP CALL TO ALL WHO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS! Wake up before it is too late!

This also contained A PROPHECY PERTAINING TO OUR TIMES throughout most of the book , eerily, making this a book for US ALL HERE EXPERIENCING THESE TIMES. Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

LIVE AND PROCLAIM your Christian faith, dump your greed and worldly pursuits & lusts which as but naught. Dust.
