a gift for Christmas…

Dec 12, 2011

…or a new year present, gift for grandchild leaving school, confirmation, wedding, a gift for an intelligent and searching adult, or a present for no reason at all apart from ‘I thought you might like this’…

A few times in recent weeks I have mentioned the visit of Fr. Robert Barron. He was here to give the priests’ retreat and a public lecture.

Recently his book “Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith” was published.  Ordering details via Amazon are available at this link.

If you are looking for a Christmas gift for someone who is intelligent, and who appreciates beauty and truth, it would be difficult to do better than to give them a copy of this book.

Fr. Barron’s TV series Catholicism is screening on over 100 TV channels at present.  You can buy this DVD series from this link, or from his www.wordonfire.org website.

Tap on the video link below to view the ‘trailer’ for the Catholicism series.
