Many Catholics yearn to live more deeply inside the Gospel by engaging in the courageous work of transformation that Jesus said would anchor them to withstand any storm. By addressing each of several topics from everyday life, New Leaven helps persons and couples close the gap between the Gospel and the way they actually live at home. This is done not just by human effort, but by seeking the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit while gathered with others as a small group of disciples. As the level of prayerful trust and courage grows, the group becomes more and more expectant for what God will do in their midst.

New Leaven is thus for maturing disciples who have already found new life in the Holy Spirit through a New Evangelization. As these everyday lives become more authentically Christian, the evidence can be quite striking, although humble. They tend to pose a subtle, leavening presence in the community, a powerful stimulus for parish renewal.
