Inspired by the Parable of the Ten Wise Virgins (Matt 25: 2-13), this book affirms the wealth of grace entrusted to praying women. Through poignant stories and teaching, eleven Catholic women, single, widowed, married, mothers and grandmothers, magnify the Marian vocation of living as contemplatives in action.

Learn how, amidst the noise of a secular culture, the authors were formed in joy and sorrow, and discovered the transformative power of prayer. Each chapter ends with spiritual reflections: "Ponder, Practice, Pray," and "Feminine Wisdom" from women saints. Eucharist, Scripture and Mary are prominently highlighted. Here is a book that can inspire the new outpouring of the oil of prayer for healing and holiness.

Donald Calloway, MIC, Author, Champions of the Rosary

Through the chapters contained in this book, these women-leaders give birth and share with others various aspects of prayer which they have carried within." -- Sister Joseph Andrew Bogdanowicz, OP , Vocation Director, Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist
