Please join me and other Catholic bloggers for 7 Quick Takes Friday, this week at Team Whittaker (as Jen is on break!)
1. The Lion’s Heart Now Available on Kindle
The Lion’s Heart by Dena Hunt is now available on Kindle. FQP is releasing the print edition later this month. Check out the new novel website at this link here.
2. Two of My Favorite Authors on Ave Maria Radio
Hey, check out this episode of “Meet the Author” on Ave Maria Radio recently with Dena Hunt and Jason Evert. Check out it out here.
3. Prayer Intentions
First, please join me in praying for the repose of the soul of Fr. Kenneth Walker, a young priest who was murdered a few days ago in Arizona and Fr. Joseph Terra, who was also injured in the attack, but will likely survive. More information here at this Patheos post.
Please also continue to pray for Meriam Ibrahim (who has been sentenced to death for being a Christian and is currently held in prison in Sudan along with her toddler son and newborn daughter). and for the 300 Nigerian schoolgirls who were abducted and are still missing.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
