Here at Carmel Books we like to pack packages out - within the postage weight limits of an order, of course - with free bits and bobs like prayer cards and leaflets that promote worthy apostolates.
For some time now we've been adding a free copy of a variety of interesting booklets to orders. These booklets are not advertised for sale and are chosen by us according to what we have stock of at any given time.
At the moment - until stocks run out - we are giving away to customers a free copy of a fascinating and beautifully produced booklet entitled Notre Dame de Bellaigue: Rebirth of a Monastery.
This 44 page full colour booklet is a bit of a collectors item. Published in 2004 to help raise funds for the Benedictine Monastery of Our Lady of Bellaigue in France, it tells the religious story of Bellaigue, past and present, in poetry and pictures.
It's packed to the brim with inspiring colour photographs and carries an Introduction written by the saintly Prior of Bellaigue, Dom Angel, OSB.
Dom Angel Ferreira da Costa was called to his eternal reward on 9th March, 2008. Please remember the soul of the saintly Prior of Bellaigue on All Souls' and during the Octave.
