We are delighted to announce that we are now taking orders for Chosen – Daily Advent and Christmas Reflections 2017 with bulk pricing for GST Free Catholic Religious Groups starting from only $3.00 per book.
Continuing the tradition from past years, Chosen is a 72 page pocket-size book containing short daily reflections from the beginning of Advent (3 December 2017) through to the Baptism of the Lord (8 January 2018) primarily for personal use, but also appropriate for group use such as parish, Church agency, religious community and school staff/class prayer.
Chosen also features beautiful religious artworks from the Masters such as Fasolo, Veronese, De Favanne, Bloch, Lotto and Perugino, with enlightening “Artwork Spotlight” reflections written by Fr Graham Schmitzer PP (Parish Priest, Immaculate Conception Parish Unanderra).
Many customers buy bulk copies of the book for family, friends and work colleagues as an alternative to Christmas cards and gifts. We have included a page in the book for you to write your gift message.
