"Called to Holiness"

Check out a terrific new site, based on a new series of books edited by my Fairfield University colleague, Elizabeth Dreyer, www.called to holiness.org.

Anchored by her own offering in the series, "Making Sense of God," these books present a thoughtful and practical look at spiritual life for Catholic women.  Three of the books won awards at the recent annual meeting of the Catholic Press Association.  

The site itself, with an ongoing series of meditations, is worth a bookmark.  I enjoyed the entry (scroll down middle column at the site) by Beth M. Knobbe, whose book in the series will be out this Fall.  Knobbe writes from the perspective of a young adult, seeking her own place in the world -- her voice will certainly be of value to all of us...
