Need a prayer companion for your motherhood vocation? CatholicMom.com has got you covered! Not only is CatholicMom.com a great source of inspiration and community for mothers, but its also a tour de force when it comes to book publishing, thanks to the ongoing work of CM founder and Catholic author, Lisa Hendey.
This episode of Among Women brings together Lisa Hendey and author-editor Sarah Reinhard together to discuss their latest collaboration with a cast of thousands, The Catholic Moms’ Prayer Companion: A book of daily reflections.
I’m happy to have been a contributor to this book and give it my highest endorsement. Here’s some notes about it from the CatholicMom.com website:
Whether you are a new or seasoned mom working in or outside of your home, this inspiring collection of reflections for every day of the year will help you
~stay in touch with the seasons of the Church year;
~remember Mary’s loving presence on her feast days;
~keep company with both new and familiar saints;
~see the spiritual meaning of secular holidays; and
~make you smile with occasions such as Houseplant Appreciation Day and National Popcorn Day.
Each day begins with a brief quotation from scripture, saints, recent popes, or important spiritual writers. A personal reflection—written by contributors including Danielle Bean, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, Lisa Mladinich, Elizabeth Scalia, Carolyn Woo, Mark Hart, and Jeff Young—focuses on some dimension of your spiritual, emotional, intellectual, or physical life. Each day also includes a brief prayer and a question or thought to ponder throughout the day.
This latest podcast also profiles the life and work of Blessed Maria Ludovica De Angelis, a 20th-century woman. Listen here, or subscribe to Among Women on iTunes.
