Catholic Book Recommendations from Daughters of St. Paul


I think if I had ever had a vocation to the religious life, I would have loved to have become a Daughter of St. Paul.  I simply adore their work, their commitment to creative means of evangelization, and their great attitudes.

I wanted to share the following video which was shared by my friend Sister Anne Flanagan.  She says of Sister Julia, the video host:

Sr Julia talks about her current “stack” of spiritual reading books. Sr Julia Darrenkamp, fsp, is manager of Pauline Books & Media in suburban New Orleans. Originally from Lancaster, PA, she is a soprano soloist with the Daughters of St. Paul recording choir. (Her father, John, sang with the New York Metropolitan Opera for 20 years!)
