I am finally happy to announce the availability of my newest publication: Devotion to the Blessed Virgin by Le Pere de Gallifet.
Scroll down, to find direct links to the work. But before you do consider helping in this endeavor which I have spoken of before on this blog. As many of you know, I have thanks to the generosity of many readers provided a copy of a fruitful pocket-size edition of meditations on the Passion to over 140 seminarians, priests and religious (some more copies have been recently handed out)!! BUT I want to provide copies to even more seminarians… I have heard so much gratitude from the seminarians who have already received a copy.
So many are discussing and praying in trying to figure out just what needs to be done concerning all of these scandals in the Church. I, too, along with many close to me, have even personally been affected by the news of the sexual abuse by priests, one being the priest who inspired my priestly vocation. I can tell you this though: I, now more than ever, have even greater resolve to be a priest and to be a good and holy priest at that.
This is the answer to the problem, we need to be forming GOOD and HOLY priests. And we need to be praying and sacrificing to this end all the while. I pray that my effort will assist just even one priest to get to heaven, and so I have turned my eyes to the seminaries and want to provide as much support as I can to their spiritual and moral formation. The best way to do this is to teach them how to pray and to hope that they realize that in their conformity to Christ they must keep a lively and loving devotion of Christ’s Passion on their heart.
Can you please consider assisting in this campaign? $15 provides one seminarian with a book. For those who donate $100+, I will provide you with a free copy of Devotion to the Blessed Virgin and your gift will provide 6 seminarians with a copy of the Meditations from the School of Jesus Crucified. If you donate $100+, please leave in the comment on your donation your address and do also share with me what intentions I can pray for. The monthly benefactors’ Mass will be tomorrow for the Feast of the Dedication of the Basilica of St. John Lateran.
Here is a screenshot of the campaign, link is in the caption under the screenshot.
For every $800 reached, I will be able to provide 50 copies to seminarians. I will naturally share on the blog whenever a large quantity is shared to a seminary.
Okay onto the gift you would receive if you donate $100+ to the campaign. Here is a screenshot of the publication, a link to purchase is in the caption under the screenshot.
The work explains of what devotion to Our Lady consists, the motives for this devotion and the truth from which it flows. He was a spiritual son of Saint Claude de la Colombiere and oversaw the formation of 700+ confraternities of the Sacred Heart.
The book is hardcover and is 6″ x 9″ at 152 pages. This is the same format as my most recent publication of Flowers of the Passion: St. Paul of the Cross.
I quoted the work of Devotion to the Blessed Virgin in a September 20th post. You can find it here: Praises of Our Lady.
