A book review from the National Catholic Register on 'Prayer Works' by Matthew Leonard

"Prayer Works! is an essential and comprehensive primer on prayer, which is helpful to both the experienced as well as the novice pray-er. It is an upbeat and joyful way to commune with God and to grow in holiness."
Sounds like a good Christmas gift to share within a family! Remember, Jesus told us to only sow the seeds and not worry about if they germinate and grow. Stocking stuffers like these can become real aids later in life when the trials and travails of life grow difficult. Never a bad item to have on the bookshelf to pull down and read in a time of need. I'll wager that's there's more that can be gained with such a gift than just the temporary pleasures that come with the latest electronic toy.

This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
