The online store for the Rosary Center and Confraternity.
In our fast-paced, hyper-digitized lives, we are losing the sense of a good story, among family and friends, around a good fire.
In Christmas Around the Fire, Ryan Topping invites us to turn off the television set, put down the devices, quiet ourselves, and gather our loved ones to enjoy some of the best writings about Christmas. Having an actual fireplace around which to gather is not so important, but it helps!
Included within are selections from legendary novelists and poets such as Leo Tolstoy, G.K. Chesterton, Charles Dickens, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Willa Cather, and more, as well as the profound thoughts of great religious figures such as Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Pope Saint John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI. Hard Cover 296 pp.
For those who love the true spirit of the “most wonderful time of the year”, and who love reading in almost equal measure, Christmas Around the Fire will quickly become a family tradition. This is one of those rarest of books, one around which family memories are made.
We know you can choose from many online bookstores, and we thank you for considering us! We take pride in running a bare-bones and lean operation, using any monies we might make toward spreading the Gospel, promoting prayer, supplying the missions, and supporting our retired Dominican friars and student brothers (seminarians) -- our future priests and promoters of the Rosary.
It has become a great blessing in my daily prayer life. I'm am eternally grateful for everything they are doing.
