The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments: A Catholic Journey through Recovery

What makes The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments: A Catholic Journey through Recovery by Scott Weeman compelling inthat it is his personal story of his descent into hopelessness and “incomprehensible demoralization.” Then through the grace and mercy of God and significant individuals, Weeman comes to a spiritual awakening. As he points out in the Introduction, “This shift did not happen overnight. Its foundation was laid in working the Twelve Steps and immersing myself in the sacramental life of the Church.” There are four Chapters:

  • Baptism
  • Reconciliation
  • Eucharist
  • Confirmation

This is the first book to directly integrate the Twelve Steps with the practice of Catholicism. The Foreword is written by Most Rev. Robert McElroy, Bishop of San Diego.
