From a reader:
I run a gift/book shop in our parish. Our town (here in the south) doesn’t have any catholic stores so we provide that service for four parishes in a two city area. Our new priest will not let our vicar recommend books for me to buy for our store. I don’t understand. I plan on talking directly to our priest but I doubt if I will get very far. I do not have the experience or the expertise to recommend books on my own. The few books we did get had a sign “recommended by Father…” I was told to take it down. Am I doing something wrong? Our parishioners have been buying the books like hot cakes and seem to appreciate the recommendations as much as I do. What do I do? Also I would like to say thank you. I read your blog daily. Most of it goes way over my head but I am learning. I appreciate your steadfast solid faith.
My heart goes out to you.
You are trying to do something good.
