I love it when a plan comes together!

A Companion to Faith

Right on cue, CTS  (The Catholic Truth Society) publishes two excellent , affordable booklets to see us into the coming Year of Faith.

Year of Faith Prayer Book

These two little pocket-sized editions are just jam-packed with good teaching, and inspirational subtitles to entice prospective readers:

1. Something marvellous is going to happen

2.Twelve films you really must see

3. Twelve books you really must read

4. Twelve modern Catholics and modern saints you should know, etc, etc. I hope this has whetted your appetite to read more. I can’t wait to get stuck in!

The first chapter in the Prayer book begins with an introduction called ‘A Gift of Faith’ . The Holy Father’s Prayer for the Year of Faith is also included and loads more prayers to keep you praying for the Year of Faith and beyond!!

I think both booklets will make interesting reading for anyone! I intend to buy a couple more to keep in the drawer ‘just in case’ I have the opportunity to share them as a gift with anyone who may show interest in the Good News.

I’m looking forward to receiving the booklet printed by the Diocese which will include all that’s happening in the Deanery and other parishes. I’m looking forward to meeting other Catholics on my doorstep so that, together, we can move forward in tandem with the universal Church towards a ‘Second Spring’ through our witness and determination to share the love of Christ.
