New Review for A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers

This small, sturdy volume is perfect for those of us who like to carry our prayers in our purse. In A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle once again shares her insights on how to live out the faith in a practical way. Composed of short meditations and quotes from Scripture and the writings of the popes and the saints, the book is perfect for a shot of inspiration during a busy day or for an hour of quiet meditation. It is for women of all ages and walks of life, married or single, old or young. There are prayers for times of sorrow and pain, for difficult pregnancies, for the change of life or even for deepening our vocation, whatever it might be. Most of all, it focuses on the fact that all women are entrusted with the nurturing of humanity, with spiritual motherhood, which can be expressed in many different ways. To quote:

All women are blessed with the gift of spiritual motherhood because we are entrusted with the human being. We respond to this lofty gift by our responses of love to all we meet. We trust that God knows what He's doing, putting us all together in our families, neighborhoods, parishes, communities, and work-places for a distinct and holy purpose. (p.63)
