Overview

Lisa M. Hendey, founder of the award-winning CatholicMom.com and bestselling author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms and The Grace of Yes shares her passion for the saints by introducing fifty-two holy companions as guides for the amazing vocation of Catholic motherhood.

Guided by the example of the saints, Hendey eloquently links personal stories, scripture, prayer, and soul-strengthening exercises into a spiritually rich and deeply practical resource for Catholic women. This edition includes a new preface and cover and is updated with information about saints canonized since the first edition.

Allow The Book of Saints for Catholic Moms to help you grow in your faith and enrich your heart, mind, body, and soul by spending each week of the year with Lisa M. Hendey and a different saint. This award-winning spiritual guidebook introduces you to popular saints such as Thérèse of Lisieux, Teresa of Calcutta, John Paul II, and Patrick, as well as lesser known but equally inspiring saints such as Gianna Beretta Molla and Damien of Molokai.

Each week Hendey offers:

  • a thematic prayer intention;
  • biographical and devotional information about the saint;
  • lessons she learned from each saint;
  • daily scripture meditations;
  • prayers;
  • activities for moms and children; and
  • practical, spiritually rich steps that help moms incorporate the wisdom and exemplary faith of each figure into their own 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)

Danielle Bean

The communion of saints comes alive in these pages; we meet and learn more about some of God's most precious gifts—our spiritual friends and companions on our path toward heaven. Lisa Hendey knows exactly what inspires and encourages Catholic moms, and in this book, she absolutely delivers it. (Danielle Bean, Editorial Director of Faith & Family)

Paula Huston

Lisa Hendey's Catholicism is as pure and joyful as the saints she writes about. A gracefully written introduction to the holy exemplars who can teach, sustain and bless mothers. (Paula Huston, Author of The Holy Way)

James Martin

Every time a Catholic mother asks me what author she should read, I have a ready answer: Lisa Hendey. Her latest book is one that every mother (and father, son, and daughter too) will find accessible, inviting, and above all, useful. (Rev. James Martin, S.J., Author of My Life with the Saints)

Matthew Kelly

Lisa Hendey once again demonstrates that Catholicism is a treasure map—it may be old, but it still leads to treasure. The challenges of motherhood have increased exponentially over the past several decades, but the heroes and heroines of Christianity still have the answers. (Matthew Kelly, Author of Rediscover Catholicism)

Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle

God bless Lisa Hendey for bolstering Catholic mothers by sharing her intimate companionship with fifty-two of her favorite saints. She provides a brand new look at them, complete with their well-worn wisdom, reminding us that we are never alone. (Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, Author of A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers, Host of EWTN's Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms)
