The Daughters of St Paul at Pauline Books and Media Alexandria on King Street are excited to highlight the important work of Fr. Matthew Schneider in a presentation on Tuesday, June 6, 2023.

Father Matthew is a leading expert on Catholicism and Autism and his recent book God Loves the Autistic Mind: Prayer Guide for Those on the Spectrum and Those Who Love Us has been well received. His message fills a huge gap in spirituality for Catholics and speaks directly to those who themselves are on the spectrum and those who are family members seeking for ways to understand and assist the ones they love.

In his talk "Autistic Prayer" Father Matthew will share insights from his book both for autistics and for those who are close to them in family or work.

On Tuesday, June 6, Fr Matthew Schneider, leading expert on Catholicism and Autism and author of the recent book God Loves the Autistic Mind: Prayer Guide for Those on the Spectrum and Those Who Love Them, will offer a presentation on Autistic Prayer at Pauline Books and Media, 1025 King St (corner King and Henry), Alexandria. Presentation begins at 7 pm. The event is free and open to the public. For more information call 703-549-3806.

We had a beautiful May crowning in the bookcenter this morning! Some children brought flowers for Mary, and Sr Julia played the harp with Sr Bethany on guitar. We prayed for all your intentions! You are welcome to join us for our next May crowning on Saturday, May 20 at 11:00am.

“If you put all the love of all the mothers into one heart, it still would not equal the love of the Heart of Mary for her children.”
- St. Louis de Montfort

A love greater than all the love of all the mothers who ever lived, the love of Mary’s heart…is a love that’s directed to each one of us! And we respond to her love in the best way we can, with hymns, flowers…and a coronation! In this beautiful month dedicated to Our Lady, come join the sisters for a May crowning on Saturday May 6th and Saturday May 20th at 11:00 here in our Book Center at 1025 King Street.

"Women love flowers. It must be part of their DNA. I don’t think Our Lady was any different. As Jesus gave his mother flowers, so we can give Mary flowers through the Rosary. But not every flower needs to be a bouquet. Sometimes even a wildflower (a quick Hail Mary) will make her smile, because it comes from one of her children. Giving her flowers, and songs and a loving greeting is what her Mother’s heart looks forward to.” - Sr. Julia Mary

Come join us. And bring your flowers.

Every time you share a book, a podcast episode, a piece of art, or a heart-to-heart over coffee with someone to communicate the love God has for them, you are participating in Christ's mission.

Thank you to each and every one of our listeners who shared S4 of The Daughters' Project podcast with someone they knew needed it. Thank you for sharing Christ with others in this small way, and in so many other ways.

Our Sisters working behind the mics and behind the scenes at the publishing house are grateful for you!

Book Review: God Loves the Autistic Mind

No experience is quite as difficult as being misunderstood. Who we are as persons—belonging to a wider group of people—is tightly intertwined with our ability to communicate. When we are misunderstood, it is not simply frustration at some technical breakdown; instead, something more fundamental ...
