That's right, Buy a Nun a Book Day is right around the corner (Thursday, in fact), but this year I am not even hinting for donations for myself. No, it is our novices who need the help.
The novitiate library is well stocked with books on Scripture and spirituality, but the liturgy section barely fills two shelves, and the books are so old the covers are almost too bleached out to read the titles. As a liturgy geek myself, I think it is critical for novices (who in our community handle all chapel matters) to have a broad and deep appreciation of matters liturgical.
So, if you are so inspired, please consider donating a book from the special "wish list" of titles hand-picked by me for the novices. Just click the linked words (or the image!).
Any gifts can be shipped to:
Daughters of St PaulWednesday update: WOW! Between yesterday and today, a dozen books were donated to our novices via the online wishlist. God bless you all! (And there are still two dozen more titles on the list, so don't despair that Buy a Nun a Book Day will pass you by...)
