This year Pope Francis canonized two of his predecessors as saints.

Pauline Books and Media has released two compilations in their “Classic Wisdom Collection” that, like the other volumes in the series, provide solid, time-tested spiritual guidance.

Kids Corner Review – My First Missal

We have a society that has portrayed the role of fatherhood as diminished and not necessary. This has led to men becoming misguided and soft when it comes to their roles as fathers  and Catholics in general. Thankfully there are a number of books on the market written to help us men keep focused and navigate through these troubling … [Read more...]

Laura is back with another review for the Kids Corner.My kids love “Look and Find” books. They are usually fighting over them and when one of my children does sit down to look this type of book over, the other one is peering over their shoulder trying to find everything first!
