The Biggest Lie in the History of Christianity by Matthew Kelly was a Christmas gift to all parishioners of my church. I read this book in a day, and found the author’s straight-forward, repetitive style to be thought-provoking and true.
The book establishes that our world is suffering. I think we can all agree to this fact on multiple levels. People have become complacent in doing nothing, or sleepwalking through life. The “biggest lie” is that holiness isn’t possible. When people believe this lie, they will continue to sleepwalk through life.
Kelly stresses that holiness is in fact possible and attainable through performing Holy Moments. They are acts of pure beauty, love, and kindness that can ultimately change the world. Holy Moments are founded on a relationship with God; they are collaborative acts. Not only will they change the world, but they will create pure happiness for those creating them.
