These days

With much in life still keeping my attention away from this blog, I’ll be continuing my “haitus” for a bit longer.   Hopefully not much longer, though. 

In the meantime, I notice the Holy Father has approved the canonization of Blessed Damien de Veuster, Blessed Jeanne Jugan, and a few others as well.  It’s wonderful news about some beautiful figures in Catholic history.  Damien and Jeanne are particularly relevant to American Catholics — Damien for his extraordinary priestly ministry in Hawaii century and a half ago, Jeanne for her legacy of care for the needy elderly that the order she founded carries on in the U.S. to this day.  I hope I get more opportunity to write about both of  them, here and elsewhere, because I’d love to see people become more familiar with both of them.

I am just finishing up a project for Pauline Books and Media on Damien.  They’re going to publish a small book on him to mark his October canonization.  They asked me to contribute a biographical chapter about him, and also a new novena to St. Damien, along the lines of the ones that are found in my book Saints for Our Times: New Novenas and Prayers.

Other work I’ve been up to: My article on St. Francis de Sales’ book Introduction to the Devout Life is in the new issue of The Catholic Answer.  The book was published exactly 400 years ago, and is just as important today as it was then.  And an excerpt from my book Your Guide to Spe Salvi: Saved in Hope, appears in the new issue of Catholic Men’s Quarterly.

Hope you’re well.  Thanks for stopping by.
