Please note, you will not be receiving a book when you order. The books will be sent directly to a prisoner through Paulist Prison Ministry.
A Note from Fr. Frank DeSiano, CSP:
This is a very special program for prisoners...a way to encourage them along their difficult path of reform, as they struggle with isolation, fear, uncertainty, and their questions about God. Pope Francis has written powerful words to prisoners. As you know, he wants all the church to “go out to the margins”—and few people are as marginalized as prisoners, especially in the particularly harsh and hopeless system we have developed in the United States (often for the profit of corporations and individuals). This book will help prisoners leave prison with visions and hopes that spring from our Catholic faith. Consider sponsoring a book so we can send it to a prisoner. If you are able, consider sponsoring 10 books we can send to chaplains for them to distribute. I can imagine prisoners smiling broadly as they receive a special and unexpected gift. Thank you for your loving kindness to some of America’s most forgotten people.
As a special, limited-time promotion, we will also be including a copy of our book Catholic Discipleship.
