Book Club

Our discussion of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, Rejoice and Be Glad, will resume on Thursday, January 24th, at 7PM in the rectory. The focus of the discussion will be Chapter 3, “In the Light of the Master”, paragraphs 63 thru 109. In this chapter, Pope Francis reflects on the Beatitudes encouraging us to “allow the words of Jesus to unsettle us, to challenge us and to demand a real change in the way we live.” But the Holy Father also points out that the Beatitudes show “with great simplicity what it means to be holy”. Even if you have not attended previous book discussions, all are most welcomed to be a part of our group as an “active listener” or “active speaker”. You will be amazed at the depth of the discussion and the openness of those attending to share the joys and challenges of their personal faith journeys. Copies of Rejoice and Be Glad are available (free of charge) to anyone who wishes to join the group or use the Pope’s Apostolic Exhortation privately. Hope to see you at the book discussion on January 24th.
