I’m not super great about hyping my writing, and here I am really going to have trouble, I think, because, well, study guide, encyclical, Latin, chastity, guided reading, papal document — do these seem like key words destined for search engine optimization or New York Times bestsellerdom?
I think not.
But, here goes:
I’m really excited to tell you that very shortly, you will be able to buy (for a hilariously low price) my Casti Connubii (On Chaste Marriage) guided reading on Kindle! I know! How thrilling is that! (Isn’t the cover lovely though? Deirdre’s husband John designed it for me.)
But seriously, reading this deep work has changed lives, as only an encounter with the truth can.
More on that later…
I’m finalizing the upload now. This short book will be the posts that you can find here on the blog, but edited and put in order so that you and your friends can easily access the whole thing for a study group/book club. For instance, it’s perfect for couples to read in your St. Greg’s Pocket! Or just the men! (I’d love to see that — men reading this document… could it happen?)
So stand by!
This is just one of the things I’ve been working on, all the while trying to see what the new normal will be for this online journal of ours. We love having the blog to check in with you…
Finding rhythm is the key. Routine sometimes soothes, sometimes crushes. But when I think of rhythm, I realize that not only do I have to find some inner beat that fits my life, but it will be best if it’s connected to that outer beat of life as it moves on (and of course, with the heartbeat of the Church).
I’ve been writing — working on a big project and also trying to tie up ends of some smaller bits as well. It means I’m slower about coming here, I realize. And Rosie is getting settled in her new digs (by the ocean again — not as close as Camp Pendleton, but close! hopefully she’ll show us soon!), finding her groove. Suki is chasing two active babies and doing a bazillion things. And Deirdre has been working on getting her site up and running along with a bazillion other things. You know how it goes.
Don’t worry, we’re here. The rhythm seems like it will be a bit different, but we’ll be here.
