I thought I’d mention a couple of books from Loyola Press that recently won awards from the Catholic Press Association. Why Stay Catholic? by Michael Leach won first place in the category for Popular Presentation of the Catholic Faith. The judges called it “practical, joyous, and spirit-lifting.” It is all of those things, and well-written too. Why Stay Catholic? also won third place in the Spirituality category.
Third place in the Popular Presentation category went to Practice Makes Catholic by Joe Paprocki. The judges said it is rich with wisdom and “short on preachiness.” That’s what we like to hear about our books.
Rounding out Loyola Press’s awards is Living the Mass by Joe Paprocki and Fr. Dominic Grassi. The judges said it was “a gem.”
Finally the National Jesuit News took first place for best electronic newsletter. Not surprisingly, the Jesuits are leading us into the digital future.
