Like to join a book club that meets to chat about Christian Classics?
Our next meeting will take place on Sunday 26th February at 7.30 pm in the foyer area of The Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe.
The group will discuss the life and teaching of St. Charbel Makhlouf of Lebanon (1828-1898). St. Charbel was a Maronite monk who has many miracles attributed to him.
There is a short biography of St. Charbel entitled ‘Lamp of Eternal Light’ by Elias Turk which can be downloaded from Amazon. Additional biographical information can also be sourced via the Internet, e.g. https://www.familyofsaintcharbel.org/biography.html .
The group will also continue their reflection on St. Francis De Sales’ ‘Introduction To the Devout Life’ and on this occasion will focus on Chapters 4 to 7 inclusive (approximately 10 pages).
Newcomers always welcome.
