Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

Celebrate the Year of the Consecrated Life

The Year of Consecrated Life began on the First Sunday of Advent and will continue through February of 2016. The Catechism says in No. 944 that a Consecrated Life "is characterized by the public profession of the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience, in a stable state of life recognized by the Church." St. Kateri Tekakwitha was one of the first on the North American continent to consecrate her life totally to Christ as a consecrated virgin. In Emily's book on this incredibly faithful saint, learn how she overcame many obstacles to become one of Christ's most fervant devotees. Order your copy at Servant Books.

Something to Remember

We are preparing for our upcoming Holy Land pilgrimage in January and one of the books we recommend to pilgrims is "My Heart Is a Violin" which is the story of Holocaust Survivor Shony Alex Braun. I finished writing it nearly 15 years ago now and sometimes I forget the important impact this compelling story tells. 

Here's what a recent reader had to say: I just finished reading "My Heart is a Violin." I have never read a book that touched me like this one....I felt like I was personally experiencing every sorrowful event in Shony's life during the Holocaust. I also felt God's protection and love for Shony. And, of course the many ways he positively touched the lives of all who crossed his path. 

Emily, what an incredible project for you to be a part of...You did an awesome job!! Thank you so much for including your book in our reading list for the pilgrimage.

God bless, Mary Ellen

It's a story we cannot forget! Click here for ordering info.
