My Daily Bread
Confraternity of the Precious Blood
An indispensable little pocket sized book to carry with you anywhere for spiritual reading, meditation and prayer. You can open it at any point and receive the wisdom and comfort of Christ, the Friend, the Teacher and Brother. He speaks to the reader as a beloved child of God, helping him to deepen his faith and trust in God. You will read and learn about the principles and practice of the spiritual life. Christ does not always tell us what we want to hear, but, we receive the messages we need to hear in order to follow Him in this life.
I just love this book and have purchased many additional copies to pass along to friends and family or to anyone who might feel discouraged or tempted by those vices that lead us away from God. Also great for someone seeking to grow closer in their relationship with Christ.
Many customers have highly praised this book and I pass that recommendation along to you.
Since the removal of the missalettes from so many churches and the background noises that can be so distracting during Mass, the monthly Magnificat Magazine is a wonderful resource providing not only daily mass readings, but also morning and evening prayer and a meditation for each day. You will also find information on the Saint of the day.
A great way to get in your daily reading of the Word of God. The Order of the Mass can be found midway through each missal highlighted by a different colored page border making it very easy to locate the parts of the Mass. Some of the prayers include both the English and Latin translations.
Affordable and convenient with substantial savings on one or two year subscriptions and available in Spanish. I have been purchasing monthly copies for a few months now and have included it as part of my daily spiritual meditation and prayer time.
Also, makes a great gift!
If you are looking for a dramatic presentation on Lourdes that is substantially different from the rest, this is the movie for you. The action takes place in the life a modern day journalist and his wife and switches back in time to the days of one of his ancestors living at the time of Bernadette Soubirous. It is very interesting to watch as the scenes move you from the present to the past and then back again.
You will follow the lives of journalist Bernard, his ancestor Henri and Bernadette. Without giving the the plot away, the movie is very well done, easy to follow, well acted and different. I really enjoyed the movie and am glad it has now been made available for purchase in the U.S. In Italian, with English subtitles.
