Happy Easter!

Happy Easter from all of us here at Pauline Books & Media! May the Risen Christ bless you and your families with all His joy and peace this Easter season and always!

If, then, we have died with Christ,
we believe that we shall also live with him.
We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more;
death no longer has power over him.
As to his death, he died to sin once and for all;
as to his life, he lives for God.
Consequently, you too must think of yourselves
as (being) dead to sin
and living for God in Christ Jesus.
Romans 6:8-11

It's not too Late for Metanoia This Lent!

With the ushering in of Gaudete Sunday, we have officially reached the midway point of our Lenten Season. It's not too late to experience mentanoia -- a transformative change of heart -- this Lent!

Good reading materials can offer you an ideal opportunity to deepen your faith, and turn your heart more fully toward Christ. Perhaps this year, you can learn more about the deeper meaning of the practice of fasting through Niklaus Brantschen's book, Fasting. Or, maybe these final weeks of Lent would be the ideal time to learn the ancient practice of Lectio Divino (or praying with Sacred Scriptures) through the book, Lenten Grace, which is the fruit of the prayers of our Sisters.

This may also be a good time to pick up a copy of one of several different versions of the Stations of  the Cross to pray with these final weeks of Lent. This ancient practice brings us into touch with the great love of our Savior who walked the way of the cross for each of us, while also offering us the opportunity to deepen our commitment to carry our own crosses with love.

Regardless of what you choose, we hope to see you soon!
