are now in house. We have already begun distributing these yearly classics and the response from
those who have received them has been truly heartwarming.
One prison minister who received four boxes of our Calendars and books wrote, “I will be able to
share these with other prison ministries in the area. I’m sure the inmates will enjoy them, especially the
Three Minutes a Day…. These short reflections each day will give them something to lift up their spirits.”
Another person who has ordered Calendars from us for over forty years wrote such a beautiful letter
to us telling of the first time she encountered our Calendar as she was on her way out of church. She
wrote, “I saw it as I exited from a morning visit on my way to work when I was in a sad state of mind.
The Calendar’s printed messages guided me through the rest of that year and I have been getting the
Calendar for myself and for family and friends ever since.”
We are so grateful to those who take the time to share stories of how our work here at The Christophers has touched their lives. Our goal is to meet people where they are in their everyday lives and offer a message of hope that can help them to understand how special they are in the eyes of God.
On October 1, we celebrate the feast of Saint Therese of Lisieux, who once said, “Remember that nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do with love.” We pray that Saint Therese intercede for all our Christopher friends to see the work of God even in the smallest tasks of their day.
October 15th is the feast of Saint Teresa of Avila, who said, “Let nothing disturb you; let nothing frighten you; all things are passing. God does not change. Patience obtains all things; nothing is wanting to him who possesses God; God alone suffices.” Let us pray that Saint Teresa inspires us all to have the courage to rely upon God rather than the things of this world for our strength and sense of well-being.
Thanks to our donors for making all we do possible. It is only with your support that we are able to continue lighting candles in the darkness and bringing a message of hope to those in need. God Bless!
