Bishop Joseph Perry: Good reading is food for the soul.

Books help us “Listen to the Lord” for ways that we can continue our Mission in manhood

“I have read three books thus far during this COVID-19 lockdown and am starting a fourth. Good reading is food for the soul. The Daughters of St. Paul offer a healthy menu of reading material for any Catholic wishing to fill in the time that’s on our hands, find tips from the lives of the saints, feed meditation and keep us abreast soberly with issues affecting the Church and the Christian lifestyle today.”

Easter Greetings,
We hope that you are doing well, and getting some extra time to pray and do some things that you wouldn’t get a chance to if things were all “normal” in the world…

Here at Pauline Books & Media, we are praying more and trying to “listen to the Lord” for ways that we can continue our Mission in spite of limited travel, the new sanctions of “social-distancing” and closing the door to our downtown bookstore. We are so sorry that the major impact of the “stay-at-home” regulations happened right before your scheduled Men’s Conference on April 18.

Hopefully, the group has been able to stay in contact through email, and social media and support one another with messages and prayers. We Sisters have added an extra Hour of Adoration each day to pray for everyone; including all those whom we would have met through our outreach evangelization events. So, please be assured that you and the Men of the Southland Forum have not been forgotten; and share daily in our prayers.

In case anyone in the group is interested in getting resources for themselves or inspirational gifts we are “open” for call-in orders during our normal hours of operation (M-Sat, 10 am to 6 pm — we now pray from 5-5:30 pm).

Attached is a list of some of the items available; and I or other Sisters can be called at 312-346-4228; or email us chicago @
God bless you and all the good that you do.
In St. Paul, the Apostle,
Sr. Helen Rita Lane, fsp
