Book DeBriefs

Equipping Catholic Families with…Book DeBriefs is a series of book reviews on awesome Catholic books published by Franciscan Media* and its imprint Servant Books, both offering excellent spiritual reading to boost prayer life, devotion and Faith.

The Peace of Christmas: Quiet Reflections from Pope Francis by Diane M. Houdek

This is a nice book of reflections, beginning with thoughtful teaching from Pope Francis, “A Christmas Reality”; words from the author about what’s happening in this busy season from Thanksgiving, throughout Advent and Christmas and then  “Your Christmas Gift Today” that might entail some personal reflection, a little extra virtuous effort in our interaction with others or an activity that propels us deeper into our spiritual life or draws us closer to others with a memorable experience.

The book offers an opportunity to step back from the busyness of preparation for Christmas; shopping, decorating and entertaining and consider a gentler, perhaps more Faith-focused approach to preparing our hearts for Christmas.

The 40 reflections in this book are not assigned specifically to dates within the Advent and Christmas seasons. The chapters flow nicely with the flow of activity throughout the seasons…and you won’t feel guilty or pressured if you miss reading a reflection on a particularly busy day.
