May 16, 2016 | WEBBIZ I am so excited to be offering this amazing Year of Mercy giveaway of books and CDs which will inspire and encourage you to grow in the gift of mercy during this Jubilee Year.The winner of the giveaway will receive one copy of the following:101 Inspirational Stories of the Sacrament of Reconciliation compiled by Sr. Patricia Proctor.I love this book and the others in the series. As the title suggests, the book features ordinary people telling the story of their experience with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Some of the stories are quite dramatic, describing life-changing confessions after being away from the Sacrament for years, even decades. Others recount the extraordinary grace which is available even in the most ordinary, routine confession. If you know someone who is skeptical or even downright fearful about the Sacrament of Reconciliation, this would be a great way to encourage them to approach this Sacrament of Mercy. A Year of Mercy with Pope FrancisThis book provides a daily quote about Mercy from the writings and preaching of Pope Francis. Each meditation is followed by a series of questions that open our heart to apply the Pope’s wisdom to our daily lives. The questions are great journal starters or can be used in small faith sharing groups to spark discussion. Beautiful Mercy: Experiencing God’s Unconditional Love So We Can Share it With OthersThis collection of inspiring essays from great Catholic authors such as Matthew Kelly, Father Don Calloway, Dr. Scott Hahn and more help put flesh and bones on the Spiritual and Corporal works of mercy. If you are seeking mercy in your life and ways to show mercy towards others you will love this book. Also included in the giveaway are Lighthouse Catholic Media CD’s “Confession” by Father Larry Richards and “The Sacrament of Penance” by Father William Casey.
