Vital Signs leads the reader from the surface of life—where too many of us skim along—to the soul, which is often quietly starving for lack of nourishment. While candidly naming the temptations and pitfalls of life in the 21st century, Fr. Bocala keeps his pace brisk and his tone light as he outlines the path to becoming a better and more contented person.

“Keep Away From Children!” “Pay As You Order!” “Drink Moderately!” “No Loitering Allowed!” “Merging Lanes, Give Way!” And many more. 

There’s more to these commonplace reminders than meets the eye. They bid us all to behave well. Yes, those signboards are meant to awaken in you and me—rational beings—our sense of right and wrong, good and bad. 

Moral guideposts are scarce these days while far too many people seem lost in life. So public notices serve to fill in the gaps, reminding us of the ABCs of good manners and right conduct taught in kindergarten. 

Classical virtues such as prudence, justice, fortitude, temperance and honesty do not wane. We need them more than ever. If you think modern society has little need of ethics, just look around you! 

A simple sign like “Stop, Look & Listen” posted at a railroad crossing, or the label “Drink Moderately” attached to a bottle of cognac, has much to say about our human identity, who we really are, and how we ought to live our lives. 

Short and sharp messages. Each contains a wealth of hidden wisdom. These are Vital Signs because they help us face the question every man or woman must answer: “Where is your life heading?” This book is light reading, but be ready for doctrinal punches!
