A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms
by Lisa M. Hendey
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 Thérèse of Lisieux, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Saint André 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.
"I am so grateful for Lisa Hendey’s new book. Whether you’re a spiritual mom like me or a mom with children who keep you on the move, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms will provide much joy, guidance, and companionship on your journey."
Teresa Tomeo, Host of Catholic Connection
"God bless Lisa Hendey for bolstering Catholic mothers by sharing her intimate companionship with fifty-two of her favorite saints."
Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, Host of EWTN’s Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms
