Celebrating Lent

“The season of Lent during this Jubilee Year should also be lived more intensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience God’s mercy.” – Pope Francis.

Pope Francis has made relating Jesus’ teachings on mercy one of his top priorities. Combining the wisdom and humility of Pope Francis with prayers from Fr. Warren J. Savage, the book Living Lent With Mercy will touch your heart, prompt deep reflection and spark a desire to grow closer to the Lord, one day at a time.48 pages, (PF4) $1.49 PF4

While Lent may feel like it is only about our regrets, sufferings, and disappointments, Pope Francis tells us Lent means much more in his book Lent and Easter Wisdom from Pope Francis. Reflect on the powerful words of Pope Francis, and the accompanying Scripture, prayer, and actions every day of the Lenten and Easter season. Make the journey from suffering toward the healing and transformation found in the Resurrection. (G2968)128-page paperback $11.99

Pope Francis’ booklet Living Lent with Passion (PF2) is a also starting point for prayer. Each day includes a suggested Scripture reading, most often from the day’s Mass. (PF2) 48 pages softcover, $1.95


Sharing Blessings

There’s still 9 days until Valentine’s Day. Surprise your beloved

with a meaningful Valentine from The Printery House. Let your wife/husband/sweetheart know how grateful you are to have him/her in your life.

Start a Blessings Jar…write down something that happened that made you happy every day, along with the date, and put it in the Blessings Jar.

Next Valentine’s Day, get out your Blessings Jar and read them together. You’ll be surprised that all the “little things in life” really are the big things…all are blessings.
