My Gift To You On This 11th Day of Christmas…

On this 11th day of Christmas, my gift to you echoes the Eleven Pipers Piping who are representative in the Twelve Days of Christmas song of the faithful eleven Apostles.

Two groups of “missionaries” who have been faithfully sharing the Good News of the Gospel of the reality of God’s love and mercy are the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception (MIC) and the Missionaries of the Company of Mary (SMM).

So, today, on this 11th Day of Christmas, my 11 gifts to you are from my own ministry as well as from the fruitful ministry of both the priests of the MIC and the SMM. Enjoy!

PS–A reminder that one way that you can start 2021 on the right foot, and make 2021 a year to remember is by signing up for the Unhackable Catholics Book Club that will be happening in the Say Yes to Holiness group in SmartCatholics beginning on Thursday, January 7th (the day after Epiphany!)

Unhackable Catholics Book Club Sign Up in Smart Catholics 

The 30 Day Unhackable Catholics Book Club will be discussing the book, Unhackable, by Kary Oberbrunner. The book itself is broken down into 30 days, so each morning, the group will gather briefly to watch a video from the author Kary Oberbrunner and to share with one another insights from the prior day’s challenge (given at the end of each day/chapter in the book).

Throughout the day, Unhackable Catholic Book Club members are encouraged to post and continue the conversation by sharing about what steps they are taking to become Unhackable in work and life. 

(And here is a Link to purchase Unhackable book on Amazon so you are ready to participate in the Book Club on January 7th!)
