Spend Lent with St. Paul

This treasure just arrived last week. Focusing on themes from St. Paul's life and letters (e.g., "Trials and Afflictions" for days 11-15, and "The Greatest of These Is Love" for days 21-25), the book includes passages from Scripture along with reflections from the Church Fathers, saints, and popes. Each day ends with a few short and practical questions for personal reflection. The entire book is packaged in a very attractive hardcover format and lovely dust jacket.

I love anything on Paul, of course, but this book had me at page 96, where the author quotes from our very own Founder, Blessed James Alberione: "The letters of St. Paul are a fountain of good which will vivify all generations. They direct life to its final goal and form apostles. They inflame the heart, fill it with love, and establish all life in charity."

What a great book to cover two great themes: the year of St. Paul and Lent!
(168 pages, $17.99)
