A pastoral guide for hospice care workers and all who live with the terminally ill
As people live longer, there are more end-of-life challenges for family and caregivers. Join Sr. Kathryn Hermes, FSP, and Jeannette de Beauvoir as we discuss Kathy Kalina's Midwife for Souls and the challenges of providing spiritual nourishment in hospice care. This is a must-read for anyone who loves, lives with, or cares for the dying.
Share our passion for books!
Every Booktalk with the Daughters of St. Paul features three videos in which we discuss the selected book. While you don't have to have read the book, we think it enhances your enjoyment of the video discussions if you have.
We also offer a (non-recorded) live fourth session, so you can join live to contribute to the discussion.
Midwife for Souls Booktalk dates: June 6, 13, 20 (Booktalk videos will be posted below) June 27 Live on Zoom 7 PM EST
Make sure you sign up for Booktalk notifications to receive information on joining the live discussion.

A PASSION FOR CHRIST
The Daughters of St. Paul is a Catholic international religious congregation founded in 1915 in Italy that lives and works in 52 countries around the world and is dedicated to the apostolate of proclaiming Christ through the use of media.
The Daughters operate Pauline book and media centers, media education centers, radio stations and internet channels, and related institutions across the globe.
The diagnosis of a serious or chronic illness is a life-altering experience for oneself as well as for loved ones. Facing Illness, Finding Peace gently guides the reader through the emotional responses to illness to the attainment of inner peace, all within the context of God's abiding presence and love.
"When our loved ones die, we look at the world differently. We look at our faith differently." The first time we encounter death, we are often shaken by an awareness of our own mortality. Subsequent experiences of death lead us to wonder about the ultimate meaning of our lives. Our faith, though, can offer a path to peace. If we look to Jesus for help through the struggles, he will show us the way to draw closer to this great mystery.
