The AUDACITY TO BE DIVINE – A soul’s Journey towards Illumination  is a groundbreaking, compelling and inspirational  book about the arduous journey towards transformation and illumination.It is the story of the late Mary Mrozowski, written by Judith Halbreich. It is  written for contemporary skeptics  and truth- seekers who can identify with the true intimate story of the eternal quest for spiritual truth in the context of our time- a time of crises, uncertainties, and mounting paradoxes. Even as threats to us and to our ways of life intensify, we will find solace in Mary’s story.

The book describes the transformation of an ordinary suburban housewife to a charismatic activist and a spiritual leader role- model.  Upon her death thousands of crying followers crowded the church to mourn the woman that many considered to be a modern-day Saint,  Mary of Chrysalis House , the lay spiritual contemplative center that she established.

Mary’s story is told by her daughter Judith who intimately witnessed  the  hardships and tribulations  of a penniless catholic divorcee who initially lost faith but then redefined old-time Western and Eastern spiritually to develop new strengths.  She taught her techniques of acceptance and overcoming pain to thousands of her disciples. Mary the elegant spiritual optimistic role- model, radiating the Divine , in a bright red dress and high heels will stay with you for life.
