…all call for books.
- If you or someone you know wants to (or should) learn more about Mary, whom we celebrate on January 1, take a look at the free e-book Mary and the Christian Life.
- If you’re a Catholic woman looking for a simple 365-day devotional for the new year, check out my Catholic Woman’s Book of Days.
One of the features of this book that might be of interest to you is that it’s not specifically for Catholic moms. It’s for all women , whether you are a mom or not, whether you have young children, older children, or no children, whether you’re married or not. The publishers were determined that this book be relevant to all women, no matter what their state in life – and they were right.
- Epiphany is a popular day for gift giving in many cultures, so you might continue that tradition by gifting a child with a religious-themed book such as Bambinelli Sunday, Adventures in Assisi or The Loyola Kids’ Book of Saints.
You can find out more about them at the publishers’ links above, or you can can purchase signed copies from me here.
- Do you know someone who returned to Mass at Christmas for the first time and was a little confused? Know someone who’s kicking their RCIA process into high gear over the coming months? The How to Book of the Mass might be helpful.
- Also – Lent is coming more quickly than you know – and it’s almost time to order parish materials, if you haven’t already.
- If you are looking for Lenten discussion materials for your parish, consider the book I did for the Loyola 6 Weeks with the Bible series on Matthew 26-28.
- Also, a few years ago I wrote a Stations of the Cross for young people for Creative Communications. They are republishing it this year. You can find it here – bulk prices as low as .49 and there’s a sample (pdf) here.
- And then there’s the Lenten devotional,Reconciled to God. Another resource for your parish during this Lent.
