Pauline Books & Media, the publishing house of the Daughters of St. Paul, received three book awards as well.

 

Award M13

Best review section

Second Place

St. Anthony Messenger, Cincinnati, Ohio, August, “Eye on Entertainment” by Sister Rose Pacatte, FSP

Good mix of reviews on these pages, everything from Superman to Al Gore’s documentary to a TV show (The Unit) on CBS. I enjoyed reading Sister Rose’s reviews especially on Superman — “we experience the realism of the passion, death and resurrection when Superman faces the greatest trial of his life.” And in Gore’s film, “every responsible citizen and believer will want to see and question this film. The earth is ours to save.” Nice, tight, content, and easy for reader to digest information.

  1. Congratulations! Your passion for media education is inspiring.

  2. Dear Sister Rose,   I am writing this after my evening walking meditation.  I live in a small midwestern community.  I think it is quite serendipity that I happened onto your blog about media literacy.   This is exactly what I have been hoping to learn more about this summer.   Unfortunately, nothing like this I'm aware of is happening in IOWA.   Although I frequent the Franciscan Spirituality Center I am nurtured by a woman's book discussion group at the center.   I needed desperately to work on a course this summer in professional development.  This is necessary to keep up my IOWA teachers lincensure.   Also,   I needed a course to do continuing education in theological areas in order to maintain my ordination as a minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  Please let me know if you offer any scholarships to ecumenical minded women ministers who are also public school teachers.   I really do need a contemporary area of study… This fits my need entirely.   Thank you for your time in this matter.  
    Kindest Regards from an eager student,   REV. Mrs.  Lin J. Swanson   email
