The Catholic Faith

Know, Love, Defend & Proclaim

Imitation of Christ

Originally written by Thomas á Kempis for monastics and ascetics, the Catholic spiritual classic outlines the path to sanctity with Christ Himself as the model, through a discipleship of obedience, humility, self-denial and surrender to God. Said to be second only to the Bible in its popularity as a spiritual book, it has nourished Catholics and non-Catholics alike for over five-hundred years.
