Father Jonathan Morris, the Fox News religion analyst, program director of the Catholic Channel on SiriusXM radio, and bestselling author, reveals how the Serenity Prayer offers a sure path to peace and fulfillment for everyone, not just those in recovery programs. The Serenity Prayer states:

“Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.”

Exploring the prayer phrase by phrase, Morris shows the hope that can be found by gaining a deeper spiritual understanding of its words and by practicing its message. Enlightening and profound, The Way of Serenity includes moving narratives, illuminating historical anecdotes, and pertinent biblical passages that demonstrate the power of the Serenity Prayer to help us grow closer to God and find greater peace and happiness.

Quotes & Awards

  • “For a conversation about faith with a warm, thoughtful, big-hearted man of God, The Way of Serenity was satisfying.”

    Guideposts magazine

  • “Father Jonathan Morris explores the richness and depth contained in the seemingly simple Serenity Prayer and helps show how we can begin to discern God’s will in our lives—as well as how to cooperate with Him! Profound truths presented in an engaging and down to earth style.”

    Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Roman Catholic archbishop of New York

  • “For believers, The Way of Serenity provides a road map to peace. For nonbelievers, Father Morris provides a deep incentive to consider the other side.”

    Bill O’Reilly, Fox News Channel anchor

  • “In this work, chapters are rather loosely tethered to the words of the prayer and the ideas implicit in them, but the broad message is consistent—Morris commends acceptance even without certainties, perspective, and calm. Verdict: Morris’s treatment of this very popular prayer reaches well across doctrinal and denominational divides; his book should have wide appeal to individuals, groups, and pastors.”

    Library Journal

  • “In a warm voice, narrator Patrick Lawlor delivers Father Jonathan Morris’s examination of the Serenity Prayer as a means of restoration for everyone, not just those who belong to Alcoholic Anonymous. His animated voice and varied pace and tone add to the moving narratives, historical anecdotes, and Bible quotes that Father Morris provides as illustrations. Both author and narrator emphasize the core teaching of the prayer: to accept what can’t be changed, to find the courage to change what can be changed, and to know the difference. Lawlor captures the drama of Father Morris’s moral dilemma when he learns that his sister plans to marry a lesbian. The spiritual challenge to the devout Morris family and his account of how they resolve the problem illustrate why Father Morris believes the Serenity Prayer is valuable for everyone.”
