RECIPIENT OF THE 2016 ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC PUBLISHERS EXCELLENCE IN PUBLISHING AWARD
Marge Fenelon's OUR LADY, UNDOER OF KNOTS: A LIVING NOVENA (Ave Maria Press) has been awarded Second Place in the 2016 Association of Catholic Publishers EXCELLENCE IN PUBLISHING AWARD in the Inspiration category. From the Press Release: "Fenelon's Our Lady, Undoer of Knots: A Living Novena created a new devotional practice - from the classic novena that is a favorite of Pope Francis. She reflects on nine sacred sites associated with the Holy Father's 2014 pilgrimage to the Holy Land to help readers explore the "knots" or impossible situations in their own lives in order to find peace. Fenelon is a veteran Catholic journalist, columnist, and author of a number of books related to Marian devotion and Catholic family life including Imitating Mary."
Thinking about Advent had me playing word games in my head, and two words I’ve been playing with are “waiting” and “wondering.” Although we sometimes interchange the two, especially at this time of year, there’s a distinct difference between them.
We have much to celebrate, particularly on the Feast of Christ the King, but also on a daily basis. Perhaps we won’t literally dance in the church aisles, but our hearts could and should dance within us. Like King David, we should be absolutely exuberant and unafraid to let it show.
If you haven’t yet been doing anything special, now’s the time to start. Or, perhaps you were doing something special but have lost your momentum. Now’s the time to change your game plan and pick up the pace.
