Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com, leader in Catholic new media, and author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms, introduces fifty-two holy companions as guides for the high calling of Catholic motherhood.

Hendey's enthusiasm for the saints is contagious in A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. Building on the success of her first book, A Handbook for Catholic Moms, Hendey continues her work of nurturing hearts, minds, bodies, and souls this time through the rich tradition of the Catholic communion of saints. With the warmth and candor of My Life with the Saints by James Martin, S.J., Hendey eloquently links personal stories, scripture, prayer, and simple soul-strengthening exercises into this rich spiritual resource for Catholic women.

Hendey offers one saint per week some famous, some lesser known, some whose cause is in process to offer companionship and guidance for the challenging, often under-thanked vocation of Catholic motherhood. She introduces Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Saint André Bessette, C.S.C, as well as Gianna Beretta Molla and Chiara Badano.

The 52 weekly companions to the lives of the saints include:


  • a thematic prayer intention,

  • biographical and devotional information about the saint,

  • Hendey's personal lessons,

  • daily scripture meditations,

  • prayers,

  • and practical, spiritually rich action steps that help moms incorporate the wisdom and exemplary faith of each saint into their daily lives.

Review:

"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
