Overview

Popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle offers the second in a series of daily Lenten devotional resources for families with children through the pre-teen years, this time focusing on the life and wisdom of beloved St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
Bringing Lent Home with St. Thérèse of Lisieux: Prayers, Reflections, and Activities for Families provides everything a parent needs to gather the family together for a time of prayer and conversation, including a daily quotation from St. Thérèse and a story about her life. Cooper O’Boyle also offers practical suggestions on how to put into practice each day the threefold call of Lent: to fast, pray, and give alms or care for the poor. On Sundays, the focus is on the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent, and a project for the week ahead is suggested. The booklet can be used with any of the three Catholic lectionary cycles and is designed for use with children through the pre-teen years.
