For Your Spiritual Journey

For Your Spiritual Journey

February can be cruel. It can give us a glimpse of spring before reminding us that the cold and snow are still making their presence known. It’s the waiting month for me. If you hibernate, like I do, in February, reading becomes an essential means of coping.

 The February issue of St. Anthony Messenger is a good companion for the colder months.

In this issue you’ll find:

  • Jeannette Cooperman’s cover article on how St. Cecilia Parish’s annual fish fry brings the multicultural community in St. Louis closer together.
  • Elizabeth Bookser Barkley’s article “From Widow’s Grief to New Life,” in which she compares her widow’s journey to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s.
  • “I Have Called You,” by Kristina M. Santos, about finding peace at Mass.
  • A profile on Ron Hansen, the Catholic author of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
  • And a how-to on cleaning our spritual closets by Jeanne Hunt.   

The editors of St. Anthony Messenger wish you a happy and healthy Lenten season!
