A great new book has just been released by Leah Perrault, Director of Pastoral Services for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon. Entitled Theology of the Body for Every Body, she explores the every day implications of Blessed John Paul II’s work for everyone.
It’s relatively short and very accessible for anyone. I highly recommend checking it out! Go to tobiasandsarahministries.com for more information.
I’ve also been very excited to work with Leah on producing video blogs based on her new book. Check out the first vlog below: The God Story Continues in Our Stories.
So, I was initially planning to blog – even just a small post – several times a week. However, between the podcast that I co-host, two upcoming funerals, and the preparations for a talk that I’m giving for the Saskatoon Lay Formation program, it’s been rather difficult to write anything for this blog.
I did have the chance to read a great new book, however! I bought Sinner by Lino Rulli on Amazon.com’s Kindle store. (Sadly, the paperback version is not shipping in Canada for a while.)
Lino is the winner of multiple Emmy awards for a television show named Generation Cross that ran in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Since 2006 he has been the host of The Catholic Guy Show on the Sirius/XM Catholic Channel. The show runs Monday-Friday from 2-5pm Saskatchewan time. Lino and the other cast members (Ryan Grant and Fr. Rob “Timmy” Keighron) talk about life, love, and healt… err… I mean, about living their faith in ways that are both informative and, as Lino would say, “wildly entertaining.” Truth is, this show is one of the funniest, laugh-out-loud shows anywhere on radio, and it also inspires people to search deeper in their faith.
Well, Lino has written a book. He writes about how his life as an ordinary, typical sinner (I can relate!) has found grace to grow and to learn at different times in his life. It is quite a funny read. However, note that some of his stories are definitely of a more mature subject matter (he’s writing about his sins and temptations after all), so it’s not necessarily something for the young kidlets. But for the rest of us, it’s a funny and inspiring book that is easily relatable. Check it out!
