A Pauline New Year's

"Come to me, all of you": These words from the Gospel of Matthew were the beginning of Bl. James Alberione's inspiration to found the Pauline Family and the Daughters of St. Paul. He felt Jesus in the Eucharist speaking these words to him on the "night between the centuries," December 31, 1900-January 1, 1901. Bl. Alberione knew that he was being called not only to give all of himself to God, but also to bring all of humanity to God. Because of this "Night of Light," it is now our tradition to spend New Year's Eve and part of New Year's Day on retreat. We make an Hour of Adoration together on New Year's Eve, praying with gratitude for the past year and offering ourselves to God for the coming year. We also pray in a special way for the needs of our families and friends, those we meet in our mission (whether we meet literally or virtually!), and indeed the needs of the whole world. We will remember you as we go before the Master this evening. Your prayer intentions are always welcome, either as a comment or by email: philadelphia@paulinemedia.com. We invite you to spend a few minutes with our Eucharistic Lord this New Year's as well. May 2011 be for you and your loved ones a year of grace and peace!

New Series from Pauline Books & Media

Ever ancient, ever new: Our Pauline Books & Media publishing house is coming out with a series of the writings of classic spiritual authors...with a new twist! Each volume of the new "Classic Wisdom Collection" series draws from the writings of one particular author to answer a specific question that we encounter as we journey through life. For example, the first volume, "Life's Purpose: Wisdom from John Henry Newman," applies the immortal writings of Bl. John Henry Newman to the questions "Does life have meaning? What is the purpose of my life?"
Other volumes in the series include "Solace in Suffering: Wisdom from Thomas a Kempis" and "Strength in Darkness: Wisdom from John of the Cross." Upcoming titles will draw from the writings of Jean Pierre de Caussade, Catherine of Siena, Jane Frances de Chantal, Teresa of Avila, and many more! Each volume in the series also includes an introduction by one of our Sisters that explains both the author and the theme. These books are a great way to revitalize our spiritual lives in the new year.
The books in the Classic Wisdom Collection are available on our website: http://www.pauline.org/, or by emailing or calling Pauline Books & Media in Philadelphia: philadelphia@paulinemedia.com or 215-676-9494.

Merry Christmas & a Blessed New Year!

Today we concluded our Christmas novena in preparation for the celebration of the Birth of Our Lord. During these nine days, we prayed for all of you-our friends, benefactors and those we reach through our mission of communicating the Gospel using the media. As we approach another year, we give thanks to God for the graces and blessings of this year. We are grateful for the apostolic endeavors carried out within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and neighboring dioceses this year. We thank God for the many new friends and collaborators we were able to meet in schools, libraries, parishes and other events. We are grateful for those who have grown closer to Jesus through our Pauline publications, our blog and through our Pauline Book and Media website this year. We give thanks to God for all of you as we continue to remember you in our prayers. May the Lord bless you and your families during the Christmas season and throughout the New Year!

Now Available at Pauline Books & Media


In this Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, the Pope sums up the important work done by the Synod of Bishops on the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church. The document has three major parts:

Part One: The Word of God
Pope Benedict focuses on the ultimate reality of divine revelation as the source of the word. He highlights the role of the Trinity and how the Holy Spirit acts through the word of God. He also highlights Mary as a model for all believers.

Part Two: The Word in the Church
The Church is the "home of the word," the place where it speaks to us especially through the liturgy. The word of God gives life to the Church and plays a vital role in catechesis, pastoral activity, prayer, and the sacraments. Scripture leads us to meet and know Jesus.

Part Three: To Proclaim the Word of God to the World
Pope Benedict focuses on many ways in which the word of God is at the source of the Church's mission. God's word is so powerful that it changes us, and impels us to go out to others to bring them the good news.

To obtain copies of this new document, call (215)676-9494.

Rejoice in the Lord!


Sunday, December 12: Today is the third Sunday of Advent, a Sunday when the Church invites us in a special way to rejoice in the Lord and His coming! Today, as we do almost every Sunday, we took our books, music, and DVDs to a parish (this weekend it was St. Alphonsus in Maple Glen). Through parish exhibits, we make our materials available to people to help them live this beautiful but very busy time in closer union with Christ. Tomorrow, we in the community of Philadelphia will be making our monthly retreat. We invite you to send us your prayer intentions so that we can remember them as we spend this special time with Jesus. "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: rejoice!" (Philippians 4:4).

Share Your Prayer Intentions

"The Pauline Family was born of the Eucharist" (Blessed James Alberione, Founder of the Pauline Family). As Daughters of St. Paul, our spirituality is centered on Jesus Master in the Holy Eucharist. Every day, we make what we call our Visit with Jesus. We spend an hour with Him in Eucharistic Adoration, to nourish ourselves with His Word and to intercede for the needs of others. We always pray especially for the people we meet, and for those who have asked us to pray for them. If you have any special intentions, feel free to share them here or to email them to philadelphia@paulinemedia.com and we will remember them before Jesus in the Tabernacle.

It takes a whole village of saints...


How many canonized saints and blesseds of African descent can we claim? One? Ten? A hundred? A thousand? November is Black Catholic History Month. It is a time to celebrate the rich and vibrant Catholic heritage given to us by the many holy men and women who were born on the African continent and those who migrated to the United States and other parts of the world. On October 1st 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized two saints especially dear to African and African American Catholics. St. Josephine Bakhita, who was born in Sudan in 1869, sold as a slave and became a Canossian sister in Italy and St. Katharine Drexel, who was born in Philadelphia in 1858, founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and worked among the African American and Native American people, were the two. From both women, the fragrance of sanctity attracted people from diverse backgrounds and places.

Earlier this month we celebrated the Feast of all Saints, and soon we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Let us give thanks to God not only for the saints who inspire us and intercede for us, but also for those who through God's providence made it possible them to grow in faith and holiness. It takes not just one, or ten, or a hundred, or a thousand, but a whole village of saints to raise us to holiness!

There are over 700 saints and blesseds of African origin in the Church. Below are the names of only a few. Let us not forget the thousands of unnamed saints and martyrs who laid down their lives for Christ and his people.

Blessed Clementine Anuarite Martyr from Congo. Feast day -December 1st.

St. Charles Lwanga and companions -Martyrs Feast day-June 3rd

Blessed Isidore Bakanja-martyr Feast day- August 8th.

St. Monica Mother of St. Augustine of Hippo. Feast day- August 27th.

St. Augustine of Hippo Doctor of the Church. Feast day- August 28th.

St. Martin de Porres Born in Peru His father was a Spaniard and his mother was an African slave. He joined the Dominicans. Feast day- November 3rd

St. Catherine of Alexandria Virgin and martyr Feast day- November 25th

Venerable Pierre Toussaint Born in Haiti and died in New York.

St. Mary of Egypt Feast day- April 2nd

St. Moses the Black Feast day-August 28th

St. Benedict the Moor Feast Day April 4th

Blessed Ghebre Mikha'el Ethiopian priest and martyr. Feast day-September 2nd.

St. Fulgentius Monk and Bishop Feast day -January 1st

Sts. Felex of Abbir, Cyprian of Unizibar and about 4966 companions. African martyrs deported and killed for their faith. Feast day- October 12th

All you Holy Men and Women, Pray for us!

Feast of Jesus, the Divine Master

Sunday, October 31: In addition to being Halloween, this Sunday was a special feast day for us -- the feast of Jesus the Divine Master. The Pauline Family is devoted to Jesus as the Master who is Way, Truth, and Life. Here in Philadelphia we celebrated with the lay members of the Pauline Family, the Pauline Cooperators. We had Evening Prayer together followed by delicious refreshments and a fun photo-taking session. Jesus Master, Way, Truth, and Life, have mercy on us!

School Book Fair in New Jersey

Tuesday, October 26-Thursday, October 28: We all took turns last week going to a school book fair at Our Lady of Good Counsel School in Moorsetown, New Jersey. School book fairs are another way for us to bring the Good News of the Gospel to people today. We take our books, music, and other materials and set up a display at the school. At Our Lady of Good Counsel, all the classes, from nursery school to 8th grade, took turns coming through the book fair. The children and teachers were very interested in our books, especially our books about the saints. They were also interested to know what it means to be a Sister! We thank God for this opportunity to witness to God's love.
If you are interested in having a book fair at your school, contact us by email at philadelphia@paulinemedia.com.

Feast of Blessed Timothy Giaccardo

Friday, October 22: On Friday, we celebrated the feast of Blessed Timothy Giaccardo, the first blessed of the Pauline Family. Blessed Timothy was the "right-hand man" of the Blessed James Alberione, the founder of the Pauline Family. We celebrated his feast with an Hour of Adoration together in our chapel. Later, we enjoyed a special meal and dessert. Blessed Timothy's feast also marks the beginning of the novena to Jesus Divine Master. We are remembering all of our blog readers and their intentions in our novena.

In the School of the Master

My name is Sr. Emily, and since I'm new to the community of Philadelphia, I wanted to introduce myself. I am a first-year novice on apostolic experience. This means that I am in the second stage of formation to become a Daughter of St. Paul (postulancy is the first stage -- to find out more about our postulants, visit their blog at http://fsppostulants.blogspot.com/). Most of the time of novitiate is spent at our motherhouse in Boston, where I and Sr. Sylwia (our other novice) help the publishing house, study, and attend class. For this five-month period of apostolic experience, I have come to our community of Philadelphia to experience the Pauline mission here.
I am originally from Buffalo, NY, and I am the oldest of twelve children. I met the Daughters of St. Paul first at a youth conference, and later at the St. Paul Summer Program, a program for high school women held at our convent in Boston. I was immediately attracted to the joy that the Sisters found in their mission, in community with each other, and especially in prayer with the Lord. Later, as I came to learn more about their spirituality and mission, it was like coming home. It felt more and more like Jesus was calling me to love Him as a Daughter of St. Paul, so in August of 2007 I entered the postulancy. I moved to Boston to enter the novitiate in February of this year.
Being in Philadelphia is a great learning experience. I am thrilled to be involved in so many apostolic projects and initiatives -- watch our blog for pictures and information! But most of all, I am excited to see the ways that Jesus will use me to communicate His love to everyone I meet. Remember, He wants to use you, too!

A few fun facts...
My favorite Scripture quotation: "My grace is enough for you" (2 Cor 12:9)

Our Very Own Author

Tender Mercies, A Book of Prayers for Healing and Coping by Sr. Mary Peter

Sr. Mary Peter shares about why she wrote this book:
Several years ago I began some formal studies in pastoral psychology. In my undergraduate days, the only psychology I had was philosophical psychology. I did not find it very practical. After working closely with some individuals who were volunteers, I discovered that I needed some further background to understand their behavior and my reactions to it. With the hope of helping both myself and the lay people with whom I worked, I enrolled in Boston College’s Institute for Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry. The IREPM as it was called provided many courses that dealt with psychological problems and pastoral concerns. Classes on grief and loss and troubled personalities coupled with weekend seminars offered remedies for caregivers, counselors and those who might be afflicted with mental difficulties.
As any student knows, there is hardly a class without some “paper” due. Ours were no exception. At one point rather than give a heady scientific response to clinical problems, I decided to compose some prayers for the “troubled personality.” Troubled personalities can be people suffering from mild stress to clinical depression. That is a really vast spectrum of people!

The first prayers were a Way of the Cross and a set of meditations on the 20 mysteries of the Rosary. A few “reality check” prayers were part of the initial paper. Of course, I was not advocating a boycott of psychologists or psychiatrists, or of the medications which can relieve stress. Rather, I was directing people to the source of all peace and comfort, the God who created the human heart.
When I presented the original manuscript to our Pauline Books & Media publishing house editors, they saw a need for its contents. The editors asked me to enhance the contents by adding more prayers for specific needs, such as eating disorders, cutting, etc. In the meantime I had knee surgery which gave me the time to research and equip myself to write prayers that would make sense to persons who suffer from the various disorders.
The object of Tender Mercies is to connect you the reader with God, the source of all joy, our ultimate good. Even though real love is anything but “mushy”, it is also tender and constant. May you who read and pray with Tender Mercies be consoled and strengthened in your daily quest to draw closer to God, and to allow God to draw closer to you. Tender Mercies is also available in French.
May this book be a source of blessing to all who read it.
Sister Mary Peter, fsp

God has created me to do Him some definite service


God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work.
 I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place,
while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments.
Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about.
-Blessed Cardinal Newman

Camden Diocese Charismatic Conference


Saturday, October 9--Sunday, October 10: "If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts!" This was the theme of the Camden Diocese Charistmatic Conference that Sr. Neville, Sr. Peter, and Sr. Emily attended in Wildwood, New Jersey. Hundreds of people participated from the dioceses of southern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Sr. Neville and Sr. Emily went on Saturday and attended both the adult track and the teen track. We shared our Pauline mission with many people, and were inspired by the faith and joy of the participants. On Sunday, the three of us returned for the closing sessions and Mass. We had lunch on the boardwalk by the beach and enjoyed the beautiful ocean scenery. We even received some flowers for our chapel at the end of the conference. Come, Holy Spirit!

    Book Review by Sarah Reinhard
The most compelling reason I have for wanting to stand from my rooftop and trumpet to everyone I know that they should read this book is that it’s approachable AND that it makes the whole idea behind Theology of the Body (republished in an expanded form recently as Man and Woman He Created Them), John Paul II’s great masterpiece (which is also online), approachable...
This book is written by an expert. Above all, Bransfield knows what he’s talking about. There are not only a million footnotes (which are also worth reading, by the way — some great stuff buried there in the back of the book!), but there’s also that air of confidence that comes from really knowing your material. This book is the Real Deal, made even more delightful by the fact that it is so approachable and tangible as it covers such a difficult topic.
The Human Person According to John Paul II gets my highest recommendation. I’d lend you my copy, but it’s dog-eared and underlined and written in many of the margins and, really, I’m not willing to part with it. (I don’t say that about many books, mind you.) I think you’ll find this to be a book worth reading, rereading, and studying. You might even find that it will take you down the road of reading Theology of the Body itself. Happy reading!

Book Exhibit at St. Jerome's Parish




This weekend we were at St. Jerome's parish with our religious books and media. On Saturday morning we had a smaller scale exhibit at the parish's annual flea market outside the church. It was very windy but somehow our books stayed in place! We were back for the evening mass and the Sunday masses. The last mass ended with the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Eucharistic adoration. It was a beautiful way to end the day. Next week we will be off to Harrisburg for the Diocesan Education Conference and to St. Joseph's parish in Danville. We will also be at the EPDRE (Eastern Pennsylvania DRE Gathering) in Avalon, New Jersey. Please follow us (Sr. Patricia Mary, Sr. Mary Peter and Sr. Neville Christine) and the people we will encounter with your prayers.
