Publisher: Ave Maria Press
Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com, leader in Catholic new media, and author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms, introduces fifty-two holy companions as guides for the high calling of Catholic motherhood.
Hendey's enthusiasm for the saints is contagious in A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. Building on the success of her first book, A Handbook for Catholic Moms, Hendey continues her work of nurturing hearts, minds, bodies, and souls" this time through the rich tradition of the Catholic communion of saints. With the warmth and candor of My Life with the Saints by James Martin, S.J., Hendey eloquently links personal stories, scripture, prayer, and simple soul-strengthening exercises into this rich spiritual resource for Catholic women.
Hendey offers one saint per week--some famous, some lesser known, some whose cause is in process--to offer companionship and guidance for the challenging, often under-thanked vocation of Catholic motherhood. She introduces Saint Therese of Lisieux, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Saint Andre Bessette, C.S.C, as well as Gianna Beretta Molla and Chiara Badano.The 52 weekly companions to the lives of the saints include:
- a thematic prayer intention,
- biographical and devotional information about the saint,
- Hendey's personal lessons,
- daily scripture meditations,
- and practical, spiritually rich action steps that help moms incorporate the wisdom and exemplary faith of each saint into their daily lives.
