CATHOLIC BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP: Beginning in September, our Catholic Book Discussion Group will be reading and praying Pope Francis’ recent Apostolic Exhortation on holiness in the world today. It is called Rejoice and Be Glad (in Latin, Gaudete et Exsultate). Pope Francis writes that it is his “modest goal to repose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities. For the Lord has chosen each one of us ‘to be holy and blameless before him in love’ (Eph 1,4)…(God) wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence.” For those members of the Discussion Group, copies of Rejoice and Be Glad are now in the rectory and may be picked up at their convenience. Extra copies of the book are available. If anyone is thinking about joining the Group in September or simply wants a copy for their own use or to give to a friend, you are invited to pick up a copy at the rectory. It is suggested that Group members read the entire reflection on holiness during the summer so they have an over-view of the message of Pope Francis. Then, in September, as a group, we will read, discuss and pray over the various sections of the reflection, learning from Pope Francis how to become saints – how to be holy in the sight of God. Everyone is invited to be a part of the Catholic Book Discussion group – all are welcome!

While our Catholic Book Discussion group finished the book, Beautiful Mercy, the real “work” now begins – living the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy every day whether convenient or inconvenient. The Jubilee Year of Mercy is rapidly coming to a close – but living lives of Mercy and Compassion goes on for all of us. Our Book Discussion will resume in January. Members are looking for a specific book or theme to read. If anyone has any ideas, please share them with a member of the Discussion Group or speak with Father Peter.
