St. Briget of Sweden (Memorial)--Day 4 of Our Appeal


The Fifteen Prayers of St. Bridget

Weekends were made for....(see how effective the beer ad was?)...if only we could come up with a way to make everything about our life giving faith as memorable. This was one of the reasons that I used the word S.A.C.R.I.F.I.C.E. to organize the material in my book How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist. Each letter stand for an attitude that we can bring to our weekend celebration of the Eucharist that will help us to both grow spiritually and closer to Christ--here's the kicker whether we are Catholic or not!

Yes How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist as well as Amy's Here. Now. A Catholic Guide to the Good Life. One of the first people that read my book and loved it was a young woman who is married to a Catholic and attends Mass every Sunday even though she hasn't converted. The book helped her to see the connection between following Christ and going to Mass.

We are asking readers of this blog and Amy's Open Book to consider buying one copy of her excellent book Here. Now. A Catholic Guide to the Good Life.and one of my How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist books that we believe can really help a wide variety of folks both Catholic and not. They would make a unique gift--one that challenges what weekends were made for...rest (See Genesis and God who is responsible for the creation of weekends.

All profits from the sale of these two books over this 30 day appeal will go to Food for the Poor.
Thanks to all who have already responded!
