St. Padre Pio understood the value of our children reading quality material.
At a time when critics rave about just-released books that are meant for a young audience, there is undue pressure placed on our children to be part of the “sophisticated” group of readers who have stood in line to purchase every volume in the series.
This is not the time to corrupt young minds with tales of sorcerers, witches and unrealistic heroes. Saint Padre Pio well understood the value of a good book and was quick to criticize the time wasted with frivolous reading.
Children should read more, but the quality of the material they should choose from must be overseen by concerned family members. There are good childrens’ books in our catalogue.
A Gift Certificate and a new catalogue from Our Lady’s Book Service would put everyone’s mind at ease. The books described therein have been examined by priests of our Apostolate and approved for their content. The saints and other heroes are the best examples of how our lives should be lived in pursuit of true happiness.
Our children need something positive to believe in. There is nothing more positive than the love of Our Lord and Our Lady. They need you to help them find that love.
Just call or write to us at the address shown at the end of “Letters to the Editor” in this Newsletter to order your Gift Certificates.
