THE LOOT

GIVEAWAY: The Holy Week Spiritual Care Package for the Woman Who is So Stressed Out She Didn

 

The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ

from

TAN Books

VALUE: $19.95

Hi! Martina here! ::waving hello:: This book has been a longstanding favorite of mine. I first read it during Holy Week and when we brainstormed items to add to this care package giveaway, of course, this book was top of the list. I recommend it to friends and priests alike! Faithful to the Bible story of the Passion and death of Jesus, it fills in many details and is edifying and inspiring beyond belief; plus, it is surprising and heart-rending. It will melt a heart of stone.

This book is the best on the Passion we have seen and was used as a reference in the making of the Passion of the Christ. It is also wonderful on the Blessed Mother’s role in our redemption. Includes a short biography of Sr. Emmerich. This is a great, great book for the whole family!

 

PRINT: “Real Presence – John 6 54-55”

from

Monica Welch of Dovetail Ink

VALUE: $20

 “…My flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.”

John 6 is a key chapter to understanding the fundamental Catholic belief in – and dependence on – the real/true presence of the body of Christ in the Eucharist.

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.”

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ!

  • Kunthea Jairam - It’s been a rough Lenten season for me. I have failed to follow through on many of my plans but I continue to work through it.. I also feel that I haven’t communicated to my children the importance, wonder, and joy the season of Lent can have as well as I have in the past. It started off nicely with Holy Heroes for the kids and an amazing Ash Wednesday but seems to have quickly fizzled into a forced Way of the Cross on Friday evenings.February 28, 2018 – 1:22 amReplyCancel

  • Colleen - It’s been a so-so Lent. A lot of illness in the family which has kind of scattered many of my plans.February 28, 2018 – 10:02 amReplyCancel

  • Chris S - What a great giveaway. Thank you for the book suggestion- I think I will use that during Holy Week.March 1, 2018 – 7:15 amReplyCancel

  • Katherine - Am grateful I was able to attend a women’s Lenten retreat offered by the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. One of the talks emphasized not aiming for “perfection” in our Lenten practices (get all our readings in perfectly, read the perfect book, give the most perfect Confession ever, shepherd our kids and husbands through a perfect Lenten season, etc). but instead to seek “holiness”! Te remember that our goal is to draw closer to God, to become more like Christ, and to be aware of and participate with the workings of the Holy Spirit. And the brief reflections were ended with a beautiful block of time carved out for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament!

    Thank you for this giveaway, which continues the theme. I was delighted to visit the pages of the beautiful art and artists and did not realize TAN had such an inspiring page.March 1, 2018 – 8:16 amReplyCancel
