FaithWorks Newsletter

Father Dwight Longenecker is one of my favorite contemporary authors. I've reviewed his book, Listen My Son, which is an inspiring work applying St. Benedict's rule for monasteries  to home life, especially for contemporary fathers like me. Now he is starting a free weekly e-newsletter providing practical tips for living and growing in the Catholic faith. The newsletter is called FaithWorks. The page for signing up is here.

Here's his synopsis of the latest issue:
This week my main article is the beginning of a series entitled Finding Forgiveness. One of the main problems many people have is that they are burdened with problems from the past. They are burdened with guilt, with bad memories, with regrets for things they have done and things that have been done to them.
They've been to confession and they know God has forgiven them, but the problem is they still don't FEEL forgiven! There are ways to deal with this problem, and I'd like to suggest a few in this article and in the articles in the weeks to come.
Have you learned how to listen to the voice of the Lord? The second article is the beginning of a series on contemplative prayer. We're getting started on this topic this week, and I'll be writing much more on prayer and how to pray in the weeks ahead.
The newsletter isn't very long. I read it in under five minutes. And it comes to your email, so you don't have to check a blog or blog reader to see if a new one has published. Best of all, it provides some spiritual nuggets to help you along the way. Check it out!
