The bestselling author of The Unbearable Wholeness of Being introduces a new paradigm for being Catholic: Catholicity, destined to become as familiar in this century as the word Catholic was in the 2nd century.

It is now beginning to connect all the dimensions of life: religion, spirituality, the sciences, art, culture, and society. Sr. Ilia fully describes this unitive principle which is being expressed by Pope Francis and emerging in the lives of sincere seekers everywhere. Making All Things New is at once an important stand-alone work and the first volume in new series unveiling the reality of catholicity and wholeness under the guidance of Sr. Ilia Delio.… (more)

Local notes

"As Delio demonstrates, catholicity is a conscious awareness of how everything--sun and stars, maple trees and muddy rivers, and all organisms from the single-celled to homo sapiens--forms one thing. It is a dynamic, spiritual quality that quite literally means 'becoming whole.'" "Ilia Delio helps to make theology truly catholic once again by returning our attention to the sacredness of the cosmos, engaging science with faith, and setting out a path toward a renewed consciousness of the whole." --Daniel P. Horan, OFM
