“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine

Thanks to Our Sunday Visitor, today I’m giving away TEN copies of a new Pope Francis book, edited by Kevin Cotter, titled Pope Francis and the Joy of Family Life: Daily Reflections. Learn more and enter below!


Pope Francis and the Joy of Family Life: Daily Reflections

by Pope Francis, edited by Kevin Cotter
Our Sunday Visitor, 384 pages, paperback

PopeFrancis-single“I would like to ask you all a question…. How are things when it comes to joy at home? Is there joy in your family?” – Pope Francis

The presence of God in the family brings joy, in good times and bad, because with God all things are possible.

Using brief meditations from Pope Francis followed by questions for reflection, Pope Francis and the Joy of Family Life offers insight into how you can create an oasis of joyful love within your own family. Spend a few minutes every day in prayer with Pope Francis, and help your family discover God’s plan in which every family member “feels that God is close and feels loved by him.”

  • Janice Battle

    I believe that book is nice reading for every fellow. For me as for a student it would be interesting to know what Pope Francis writes about. Actually I know the topic and the manner of writing it is but the fact that Holy Father writes is a great surprise for me. Maybe, when I will read this book I will get something about for myself and can use this for my college.
