How . . . timely?

The publishing arm of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops offers a sort of subscription service called the Resource Service by which discounts are given and new publications are shipped at no cost (above the cost of the service).

Typically this service is handy, though it is sometimes slow.

A good case in point were the books included in the packet I received yesterday: Spiritual Thought Series: Pope Benedict XVI: Sickness, Parish Guide to Implementing the Roman Missal, Third Edition, Reflections for Advent and Christmas: Cultivating the Gift of Self, and Advent and Christmas with the Church Fathers.

I suppose the last two will be helpful during the Christmas season.
