Second Season Book Selections

The books for the second season of our reading club have been selected, and registration forms are now available at St. Patrick's Gift & Book Store. We will be reading five books this year with the addition of a special winter bonus.

Our first book this fall, "My Life with the Saints" by Fr. James Martin, is one that I know everyone will enjoy. You may already be familiar with the author. Fr. Martin has appeared as a guest on many television programs and is an associate editor of America the National Catholic Weekly magazine. His style is conversational, and he brings a humorous, modern, realistic, and reverent perspective to the faith. This book received several awards and was even selected as one of the "Best Books of 2006" by Publisher's Weekly.

Later on we will read a book on prayer, a Christmas classic, the first encyclical by Pope Benedict XVI, and end with a novel. I'm excited to begin another year. I hope you are too. We have tried to keep the price of the books as low as possible for those of you who register for the entire set. If you order the five book set, you will receive almost $60 worth of books for only $45.

Feel free to post your comments or questions on this site, and check back soon for information on our first discussion sessions which will be held in November. Click on the link below to print our study guide for "My Life with the Saints."
