Please Join Our Lectio Divina Group

We are still in the initial stages of organizing our Lectio Divina group, which meets every other Tuesday to read and pray the Scriptures together. Our next meeting time is tomorrow, October 27th, at 6:30 p.m. Please consider joining us; you will be amazed by the power and grace of God's Word to daily transform your life.

The saints knew this, which is why they steeped themselves in the scriptures. So must we.

"To get the full flavor of an herb, it must be pressed between the fingers, so it is the same with the Scriptures; the more familiar they become, the more they reveal their hidden treasures and yield their indescribable riches" (St. John Chrysostom, A.D. 347-407).

Sr. Kelly's First Profession of Vows

I'm sure many of you remember our novice, Sr. Kelly, who was with us for several months last year. Well, you'll be pleased to know that at the end of August she professed her first vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience as a Daughter of St. Paul! Her religious profession name is Sr. Kelly Andrew Marie, and we are blessed to welcome our newest professed sister to our province.

For those of you who are interested, we are happy to share with you two videos of the profession ceremony that were done by one of our sisters in Boston. The second video contains the actual profession of vows. Enjoy, and please keep Sr. Kelly and all religious vocations in your prayers!

Two New Saints' Biographies

This Sunday, October 11th, Pope Benedict will canonize two new saints: Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, and Fr. Damien, the famous leper-priest of Molokai. Both of these persons lived heroic, selfless lives that serve as models of inspiration and holiness for others.

We at Pauline Books & Media are very pleased to announce that we have two new publications available on these saints.
Song of Silence: The Journey of St. Jeanne Jugan, details the incredible ordeal the saint underwent in establishing her community--including repeated betrayals and rejection (to the point that she was not recognized as the foundress of her own Order until after her death). Still, she clung to faith and transformed her trials into a path toward holiness. St. Damien de Veuster, Missionary of Molokai is a 32-page booklet that includes a brief biography and novena prayers to the extraordinary priest who gave his life for the lepers of Hawaii.

Stop by the Center today to learn more about these two remarkable individuals who are the newest canonized saints of the Church.
