Subject: Friar Jack's E-spirations: Inspiration from AmericanCatholic.org
Peace and all good. You've received this e-mail because at
some point in the last few years, you e-mailed http://www.AmericanCatholic.org (ACO)
Perhaps you sent a question, ordered a book from our catalog,
or informed us you're glad ACO's on the Web. I hope you benefited
from your contact because I want it to continue and grow.

Beginning this month, I am proud to introduce my new FREE e-mail
newsletter, Friar Jack's E-spirations. Each month, I hope to
inform, inspire and muse about the latest happenings at http://www.AmericanCatholic.org. Here's
an opportunity for you to participate in our online community.
Friar Jack's E-spirations lets you know about the latest events
at ACO and highlights resources for you to use in your daily
Here's what you'll receive each month:
FRIAR JACK'S MUSINGS:
Yes, my own thoughts about Catholic life today. In fact here's
my first installment, which came to me as I witnessed (on TV)
the remarkable pilgrimage of Pope John Paul II to the Holy Land
earlier this year. I remember how poignant it was to see the
pope kiss a bowl of soil from the Holy Land. His symbolic kiss
reminds us that, when God made the earth his home at the birth
of Jesus, all land took on a new sacredness. The "land
where Jesus was born" is really the whole earth--the whole
universe--and has no political borders. The whole earth is to
be revered. At some point during this year of the Great Jubilee,
each of us should kneel down in wonder--wherever we are--and
kiss the "land of Jesus' birth"!
WHAT'S NEW AT ACO:
