Book Launch and Signing to Celebrate the Life of John Paul II
Novalis will be hosting a book launch and signing of "John Paul II: A Saint for Canada" written by Father Thomas Rosica.
The book launch and signing is being hosted to promote the book John Paul II: A Saint for Canada written by Father Thomas Rosica, CSB. Copies of the book are available for purchase on the Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation web site.
“Blessed Pope John Paul II has been a source of inspiration for all of us, touching the hearts and minds of many people around the world” said Fr. Rosica. “John Paul II: A Saint for Canada is a testimony to the life of faith, hope and love, left behind by this holy man.”
In honour of Pope John Paul II's canonization, Fr. Rosica writes an account of the pope’s visits to Canada and lessons his life has to offer us as we continue in our journey of faith. It is a spiritual reflection on what his messages mean for us today and the impact he has made on Canada.
