Overview

Popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle presents a daily devotional companion for families with young children. She illustrates how to bring Lent home, doing "small things with great love" under the guidance of the Blessed Mother Teresa, with whom she enjoyed a close friendship.

While many Lenten reflection booklets are designed for individuals or small groups, this one is formatted specifically for families and draws on the wisdom of Blessed Mother Teresa. This daily guide shows parents and children alike how to put her words into practice with practical suggestions on how to live the threefold call of Lent: to fast, pray, and care the poor. Each Sunday's focus is drawn from the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent and a project for the week ahead is suggested. Usable during all three Catholic lectionary cycles.

"Donna-Marie provides timeless wisdom, practical and yet meaningful fasting and almsgiving opportunities, and prayers that will be cherished by your family." —Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of CatholicMom.com and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms

"What a superb resource for families. For the first time in my life, I can't wait for Lent!" —Lisa Mladinich, Author of Be an Amazing Catechist: Inspire the Faith of Children

"Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle's personal and profound reflections on Mother Teresa highlight the counter-cultural ideas that sacrifice and prayer will make you more joyful and more fully human." —Tony Rossi, Radio Host/Producer, The Christophers

    Excellent

    I can't wait until next Lenten season to share this book with my family. The quotes are uplifting and the activites are well written and easy to share with young children. I hope it will become a tradition.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Investement for Lent this Year and for Many to Best Investment for this Lent and Many Lents to Come!

    As I write, it is only hours until Lent 2012 begins, so imagine how grateful I am to found this book (Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa) in my mailbox as of yesterday! The format is easy to follow, the devotions in classic Donna-Maria Cooper O'Boyle style (easy to relate to!), and best of all it can be used by the whole family. At $2.50 a copy, there is no better bargain out there this Lent! Even if you, like me, are a bit behind in getting material to help you enter into the spirit of Lent this year, order Donna-Marie's book now and you will be greatly blessed! ><> Heidi
