Celebrate the Life & Legacy of Pope John Paul II!

As we prepare to celebrate the beatification of the late Holy Father, we can allow ourselves to be inspired anew by his life and teachings. May these final days of the lent fill us with greater confidence in God's love for us. May we boldly and joyfully proclaim this good news as Pope John Paul II did until the very end of his life.

New titles from Pauline Books & Media on Pope John Paul II

John Paul II, who served as Pope during the last 25 years of the 20th century and who led the Church with hope into the the third Christian millennium, was beatified six short years after his death on May 1, 2011. This new book from the Encounter the Saints Series tells the story of this man whose message to the world throughout his pontificate was,

"Do not be afraid!"

This book collects the memories of John Paul II and brings you into an intimate "talk" with this beloved pope. These stories have been gathered together into this beautiful volume from John Paul's writings and conversations with friends, loved ones, and companions. In John Paul II-The Story of My Life, you are invited to listen to the story of one of the Church's most-loved spiritual fathers, told through his own words.

You are invited to visit for other titles.

Lenten Reflection From Sr. Kathryn James

Lifted up into his life.... I have recently been inspired by some reading I am doing on the liturgy and the sacraments. At each celebration of the sacraments we are lifted up into the life of Christ. He takes us to himself and presents us to the Father. In the Eucharist there is an overflowing of the presence of Christ, who takes us into himself so that it is he himself who walks out the back of the Church after Mass in order to live again in the world, in your place of work, in my community, in your family, in my place of ministry. I am drawn again and again to immerse myself in the radiance of this reality, a radiant light that dispels sadness and frustration. This Jesus, who gave us his body and blood as nourishment at a meal in which he bent low to wash his apostles' feet, desires to overturn a good deal of society's values, teaching us a humble emptying of self which lies at the heart of the Trinity, new values which would transform our lives and relationships, government, law and education. The rest of Lent will be for me a prolonged retreat in order to reflect on these readings and transform them into practical directives for life. How about you? How is your Lent going?
