What Are People Saying about this Title?
"Their gift and task is to communicate the Gospel message. They are women of the Word. In these pages, the Daughters of St. Paul invite us to be washed in the Word by prayerfully pondering the Sacred Scripture throughout the Advent Season. Speaking from their own experience of prayer, sixteen sisters skillfully guide us in the simple act of holy reading, readying our hearts for the wonder of Christmas and for Christ's constant coming throughout the year."
