What's New?

Dear Friends,

            We hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and remembering to spend time with family and friends in activities that uplift the spirit. During this 70th anniversary year of The Christophers, we hope everyone can also find the time to write in to us by letter or email and share stories of how our mission has influenced their lives. It is so heartening to learn of the chain reactions that occur when people choose to light candles rather than curse the darkness. These are the stories that inspire all we do, so please share them with us as often as possible.

            A great book to dig into this summer is Our Sunday Visitor’s recently released Light in the Darkness: The Teachings of Father James Keller, M.M. and The Christophers. Father Jonathan Morris helps frame this timeless classic with introductions that provide fresh insight into Father Keller’s most inspirational writings. Light in the Darkness is already a #1 bestseller in Christian devotionals on Amazon.com. It can be purchased right here on our website, so please be sure to pick up a copy and to view Father Morris’ latest videos in a link on our homepage.

            Please also be sure to read our latest News Note, Building a Relationship with Jesus, which so beautifully captures the way in which God seeks after us and wants to draw us into a loving relationship. This News Note offers concrete examples of how to grow closer to God, and it inspires with stories of people transformed by the realization of God’s desire for them. One of the great highlights of this News Note is a beautiful quote by Pope Benedict XVI that reflects his deep relationship with Jesus and the call we all have to develop a friendship with Christ.

            It is this friendship that we are most grateful for in our 70th anniversary year, and the promise of growing closer to Christ is what keeps The Christophers and all our friends committed to our mission of lighting candles in the darkness. Thank you all for your enduring support and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
