Join the Pope's Official Prayer Group!

The Pope has a prayer group, and it's called the Apostleship of Prayer.

The international Apostleship of Prayer website has a map of the prayer group's offices around the world:

Praying with the Pope around the world!
These offices serve the Church by uniting people in prayer for the Pope's personal intentions. I love clicking on the links to Apostleship of Prayer sites from various countries. Just a few minutes on these sites helps me work on my foreign language skills and provides a glimpse into the vibrant prayer lives of our brothers and sisters around the globe.

When Pope Francis visited the US last month, he asked at every stop for people to pray for him. The worldwide Apostleship of Prayer gives us a concrete way to do exactly that.

Too Wonderful To Not Share

I was spending a little time this late afternoon on Pinterest and came across the above pin, which took me to this wonderful story of conversion. It really made my day! 

If you're on Pinterest, please re-pin!

Happy Friday to you and yours,

I'm in the final stages of writing Trusting God with St. Therese

The tomb of St. Therese in the basilica
dedicated to her in Lisieux, France.
This week I began bribing my kids to help me finish my book. They each start with $1, and lose 5¢ each time they interrupt me with discipline problems or goofing around during school hours. We’re doing lots of worksheets right now!

I wrote my final chapter of Trusting God with St. Therese on Tuesday. Now I’m doing some final rewriting and editing. I hope to send it out to a few Beta readers in about two weeks. Then there will be one more round of editing and final formatting before I make it available to select book reviewers.

If you have sent me an email lately and haven’t heard back right away, please know that I am not ignoring you. I am just really  focused on my book until this stage is complete. I will try to reply to as soon as I can.
In the meantime, here are some links related to Trusting God with St. Therese that you might have missed.

I have 4 Pinterest Boards related to my book:
Here’s my author interview at Smashwords from last fall. I don’t give a lot of specifics about Trusting God with St. Therese, but I do talk a bit about my writing process, my inspiration, and authors I love.

If you missed the post with my cover design, you can view it here.

If you’re hoping to get an advanced review copy, now’s the time to sign up for my email list, if you haven’t already. My subscribers get first dibs.

Thanks for your continued prayers. I’m really excited that this project is nearing its climax. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Mary in the Art of J. Kirk Richards

I went on a image search binge this week, unearthing countless images of Mary onto and from Pinterest.  It is an eclectic mixture with everything from obscure fine art, modern abstracts, old, icons, stained glass, statues and even ethnic and folk art. So in honour of the Feast of the Holy Rosary, a collection:

Today's Gospel, Mark 9:2 through 10 , describes the Transfiguration. I'll be talking about that. Partly. Also Peter, perceptions,...
