Jesuit On Your 401K

It's OK to Pray for Your 401(k)
"People absolutely need to know that it's natural to ask God's [personal] help in times of crisis," says James Martin, a priest, editor at the Jesuit magazine America and author of the book My Life with the Saints. "It's human and we can't not do it." Martin points out that the Psalms — in many ways the Western model for all personal prayer — are full of such special pleading. And in the Lord's prayer, Jesus doesn't forget to include "give us this day our daily bread."

Dear Joseph,

My name is Peter Glenn and I'm a producer at Loyola Productions ( a Jesuit production company based in Los Angeles.

We just released a DVD adaption of James Martin's "My Life With Saints" called "Who Cares About the Saints?" and are looking to build our database of reviews.

I enjoyed your blogging profiles of the Jesuits, including some great stories by James Martin.

If we sent you a copy of the DVD if you'd be interested in writing a film review?

Thanks and I look forward to talking with you soon!
