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
