I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again.
My family really loves this book.
We read it on the way to Mass, which means I have to speak VERY LOUDLY to reach all of the people in our 15-passenger van. In any case, this is the tradition that’s working for us, and in fact, if I don’t read it, people start asking!
Our Sabbath Scripture Book is centered around the life of the fictional Pauline family. We jokingly call them the Perfect Paulines, because deep down inside, (I think, speaking on behalf of the rest of my family), we all aspire to have their living faith. Yesterday, someone remarked, “We’re not perfect. We’re more like the Beastly Berns.”
“Does that make me ‘Beauty and the Beasts?'” I quipped, which was a very not humble thing to say, but which is exactly the sort of thing an extrovert does. The mouth rushes ahead of the mind, all the time.
And yes, I’ve talked about this book before, but with the close of the Catholic liturgical year approaching, I wanted to put it back on your radar. I’m not getting paid to do this review, although I do know and love the Family Formation gals. Rather, this is a book that works for our family, and our family needs all the help that it can get. 😉
One short story, once a week, that highlights the Gospel reading for that Sunday’s Mass.
You can look into buying Our Sabbath Scripture Book here. We were given their entire curriculum at the Minnesota Catholic Home Education Conference, (which technically does make this a sponsored review, I guess), but would it help if I told you that I’ll be purchasing the Cycle C edition of this book myself?
Yes, I’m working the $30 cost into our budget.
That’s how much I love this book.
Blessings on your week, everyone! Keep looking up and keep trusting ’til you bust.
