Live with a generous spirit! A book for all Catholic women who want to grow contemplatively, in order to pray effectively for their families and for the Church. The focus of the book is not academic but a spiritual encouragement to live out the life-giving capacity of the feminine genius.

Mary Gannon Kaufmann describes the life-giving nature of womanhood and seeks to guide women to live a deeper contemplative life of faith and prayer that can awaken holiness in themselves and others, in their families and the priests and deacons that they pray for.

Even though this call to effectively intercede for others is not new, today the call to spiritually uplift the Church and her clergy stands in new brilliance. Using Venerable Concepción's work as well as the insights of other saintly women, Awakening a Life-Giving Heart helps women learn to negotiate the ups and downs of their lives as prayerful sacrifices for others.

Review:

Awakening a Life-Giving Heart is a work of love for women. Beautifully and profoundly written, author Mary Kaufman points out that God summons women to a 'grace of personal mission.' Throughout fascinating and provocative chapters, Kaufmann illustrates how women discover, awaken, and fully live their gifts. A must read for Christian women and men who desire to understand the mission of women! --Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle - EWTN TV Host, speaker, and award-winning author

Using sure guides such as Ignatius of Loyola, Elisabeth LeSeur, and Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity among others Mary Kaufmann leads women into a deep spiritual source for intercessory prayer. At the Institute for Priestly Formation we have found few spiritual dynamos more effective than the feminine heart praying for priests and seminarians. This book is a guide into that mystery of grace. --Deacon James Keating, Ph.D. - Institute for Priestly Formation Omaha, NE
