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."

Sometimes it’s wiser to be foolish – when you’re being a fool for Christ.
Jesus could’ve chosen any of his apostles. In fact, he could have performed this amazing miracle in front of an entire crowd. Instead, he picked three of his closest followers.
When I put myself in the place of those apostles, I can’t help but wonder, “why me?” I’m certain that’s what I’d be asking myself if I were in their shoes.
