Lent is from an old Germanic word for springtime. Spring calls for polishing up, cleaning up, and preparing for the new life that blossoms in the spring and summer months. Our spiritual life is in for an overhaul when we take our Lenten journey seriously. A retreatdirector once said that a good book will tell you much more that a good friend would dare to say!
Pauline Books & Media has much to offer for the springtime of our souls! Lenten Grace is one of the titles that helps us meditate, pray over and act on the Word of God for each day of Lent.
This weekend you will have the opportunity to see and acquire Pauline editions at the Trenton Dioces's Catholic Men for Jesus Christ Conference. It will be held at St. Raphael's Parish campus on Broad Street in Hamilton (Trenton), NJ. The Bishop of Trenton will be there as well as others, such as the lay author, Patrick Madrid, to reinforce our motivations for being Catholic Christians who follow Jesus more closely.
In Broomall, PA at St. Pius V Church this Saturday evening and at all the Masses on Sunday, February 26th, we will have a display of literature, DVD's and CD's to accompany your spiritual journey. http://saintpius.net/
Next Saturday, March 3rd, we will have a display at the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Men's Conference at Archbishop Ryan High School on Academy Road in Northeast Philadelphia. Father Brian Bransfield, a priest of the Philadelphia Archdiocese, will be the keynote speaker.
