A NEW YEAR - A NEW BEGINNING! As we journey through the liturgical year, one day at a time, let us resolve to deepen our faith with the help of the resources available, especially the Lighthouse Kiosk! In the book, Your Questions, God's Answers, Peter Kreeft uses scripture to answer the most common and important question the young and not so young, often ask. Also, you may find helpful the book, Arise From Darkness: When Life Doesn't Make Sense. Fr. Benedict Groeschel offers guidance and practical suggestions for those who are troubled or burdened by life. There is a CD to help parents protect children on the internet: Protecting Innocence. If you have not listened to the talk by Abby Johnson, Why I Left Planned Parenthood, I encourage you to during this month that we honor the sacredness of all human life! For children there is a new CD offering: St. Dominic Savio: The Schoolboy Saint. There is something for all ages, including Spanish titles! REMINDER: When Augustine Institute acquired Lighthouse they have been changing the covers of the CD's, so check carefully you don't already have a copy.
