Comforting the Sorrowful

18 Feb

Pope Francis stresses forgiveness as an act of mercy we can all do. Linda Andreozzi, the author of Grief Journal, shares her journey to forgiveness of God, of her husband (for dying so young), and finally, of herself.

Journaling and immersion in beauty were two ways Linda sought healing. Grief Journal will help you, and others you know, move toward peace and acceptance of a loss. The luminous art makes this journal a healing sacramental.

Grief Journal is designed in a beautiful, easy-to-use, 6″x 9″ spiral-bound journal/workbook format with the right balance of story and space for your own writing. Click here to view a sample page. 85 pages, $15.95.

2019: The Year of Luke’s Gospel

7 Jan

We read from Luke’s Gospel at 41 of the Sunday and feast day liturgies in 2019. This year is a great time to become a student of Luke. His themes of justice for the poor, a voice for women, and second chances for everyone resonate with our own experiences.

Sister Joan’s new book—Luke’s Gospel: Written for Us—is ideal for the ordinary reader, for Bible study and faith-sharing groups, and for homilists. Its nine chapters and reflection questions invite readers to reflect on how we can answer Luke’s call to be witnesses to Jesus in our world.
