Lent and Easter
in the Domestic Church

About this site

This website contains the text and some of the graphics of the book "Lent and Easter in the Domestic Church".

So, just to answer the question that will come up "Isn't that a violation of copyright?"

Well, it would be if anyone else tried to publish the content of someone else's book, but this site is owned and operated by Domestic Church Communications Ltd., and we wrote "Lent and Easter in the Domestic Church" -- so it's Ok.

But that leaves the question of "Why publish your book on the web?".

That also has a very simple answer. Pope John Paul II introduces the idea of the Domestic Church in his "Letter to Christian Families"(also known as "Familiaris Consortio"). In that document he makes it very clear that families who have experience in Christian family life should share that experiences with younger families -- and so we are. We hope that you come across something here that will make the faith more real, for both you and your children.

We have also provided, on the right-hand side of each page, convenient links to "Lent and Easter in the Domestic Church" and other resources related to Lent and Easter. The picture of the "Lent and Easter in the Domestic Church" book will bring you to the Catholic Company's online catalog site. The links below that will bring you the Domestic-Church.Com store at Amazon.Com.

Why did we split things that way? We are a family apostolate with limited time and resources to devote to maintaining websites. Although we think that the Catholic Company catalog site is probably the best place to find resouces for Christian family life, it does not have the tools we need to list hundreds of products our visitors might be interested in, and Amazon.Com does.

This website is a sister site of Domestic-Church.Com where you can find many more resources for Christian family life throughout the year. .
