The group will meet at Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish, 611 Knowles Drive (off of Huntingdon Pike) in Southampton, PA. Pauline Books & Media will be present especially with Msgr. Bransfield's two books: The Human Person and Living the Beatitudes. The Pauline table will also have Theology of the Body titles and other family friendly titles.

On Saturday evening, March 24th, and at the three Sunday Masses on March 25, St. Maria Goretti Parish in Hatfield, PA will host a Pauline Book & Media display. Books to help in our Lenten journey, Easter, First Communion and Confirmation titles, and many uplifting Cd's and DVD's will be available.

Many new Pauline Book & Media titles have arrived. If you happen to be in the Southampton or Hatfield areas this weekend, stop by at Our Lady of Good Counsel or at St. Maria Goretti to see what's new and very useful. Of course, we will have the St. Paul Daily Missals and the St. Paul Sunday Missals available. These two titles are year-round companions to help us follow and live the Liturgy.

Blessings as you continue your Lenten journey! We look forward to seeing you this weekend!

Marching On

Blessed John Henry Newman wrote the song "Onward Christian Soldiers" which I first heard over the PA system during the sole year that I attended public school. The tune from that hymn seems to match the pace of our activity this month.

March certainly soldiers on. At one time our US Presidents' inaugurations took place on March 4th--as they "marched forth" leading our nation. For us Paulines March is a rush in that our schedules are bursting at the seams with holy activity! Today we have a skilled volunteer who is preparing all of the back orders for our new St. Paul Sunday and Daily Missals.

Last night we were present at St. Agnes Parish in Sellersville, PA at the parish mission. Several people took advantage of our display to stock up on spiritual reading for themselves. A religious education teacher was delighted to purchase the book, "The Kids Book of Prayers About All Sorts of Things." One of her students had purchased it during the weekend. The teacher found a prayer that lent itself well to her class on preparation for First Reconciliation.
On Saturday, March 10, all the catechists of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will meet at Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor, PA. We will be present with a display of books and media resources in English and Spanish.

This coming weekend, March 10 and 11th, we will have book and media displays at all the Masses at St. Vincent's in Richboro, PA. You will find St. Vincent's at 654 Hatboro Road in Richboro, PA 18954. The church office phone is
On Sunday evening, March 11th, Sister Mary Peter will give a Lenten presentation on Reparation at St. Mary's Church in Schwenksville, PA. And on Wednesday evening the Sisters will give an Introduction to St. Paul once again in Schweknsville.

March Breezes In

March arrived meekly in Philadelphia while it blew in harshly in tornado country. We pray for those suffering from violent weather. In the meantime, we are grateful for the mild weather we are experiencing in the mid-Atlantic.
Our March calendar is filling up!
Tomorrow, March 3rd, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia hosts The Catholic Men's Conference Manup Philly, at Archbishop Ryan High School on Academy Road in Northeast Philadelphia. We will be present with Pauline Books & Media, especially supplying copies of Father Brian Bransfield's two awesome books: Living the Beatitudes; and The Human Person in the Thought of John Paul II. Father Brian will start off the men's spirituality conference with his keynote address at 8:15 AM!

On Saturday evening, and on Sunday March 4th, Pauline Books & Media will be available at St. Agnes Church in Sellersville, PA. At St. Agnes the display will be available again on Tuesday evening, March 6th, and Thursday evening, March 8th, during the Parish Mission. See their parish website at:

On Saturday evening, March 3rd, we will also be at St. Raymond of Penafort Church in Philadelphia for their 5:00 PM Mass. And, we will be there for the Mass at 10:00 AM. St. Raymond's is at Williams and Vernon Streets in North Philadelphia,(1350 Vernon Street, Philadelphia, PA 19150). St. Raymond's website is:

Our faithful UPS driver brought us several boxes last night. We were delighted to open them and find the brand new St. Paul Daily Missal, and the St. Paul Sunday Missals. For those who have been patiently waiting, it has been well worth the wait! They are beautiful!

Best regards to all for a grace-filled Lenten journey.
