November 2022: Scatter My Darkness by Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem. 

Join us for our November Book of the Month: Scatter My Darkness: Turning Night to Day with the Gospel by Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem. In this book on the spiritual life, Fr. John Henry helps us understand the alienation that comes from sin and the redeeming power of Christ. Through the beauty of the Liturgy, he shows us how the dark corners of our hearts can encounter and embrace the light of Christ, which is cleansing grace for the soul.
