This weeks picks for our "Behind the Counter" staff reviews were submitted by our Product Management Assistant/ Customer Service Representative, Nicole Gonzalez.
7 Secrets of the Eucharist
"Vinny Flynn explores the Eucharist in a very real and honest way in this book. The seven secrets that are revealed in this book are all things that are taught in CCD, but Mr. Flynn presents them in a new way, in a way that will make you fall in love with the Eucharist. The message will draw you closer to the Eucharist and see it as a divine gift that will bring you closer to the Trinity."
Brother Jerome and the Angels in the Bakery
Father Dominic Garramone, O.S.B.
"This is the perfect bedtime story! Light-hearted and fun, Father Dominic tells the story of Brother Jerome, a baker in the monastery. With help from his guardian angel, the monastery bakery becomes very popular! This book is excellently written and beautifully illustrated, one that you and your little ones are sure to love!"
"Each of these books separately is an amazing addition to your library, however, this edition combines all three. With an easy index you are able to find all of St. Josemaría Escrivá on certain topics with ease. Whether you are struggling in a certain area of your spiritual life, or just looking for something to meditate on, St. Josemaría Escrivá has it all. Reading this book really helped in my prayer life because I felt that St. Josemaría Escrivá put all of my thoughts into words, he is real and it is easy to see his struggles as well. This book calls its readers to a higher holiness. It is a great addition to daily prayer and meditation!"
"Each day be conscious of your duty to be a saint. A saint! And that doesn't mean doing strange things. It means a daily struggle in the interior life and in heroically fulfilling your duty right through to the end."
