Review: A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers

Reading “A Catholic Woman’s Book of Prayers,” by Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle is as delightful as an intimate visit with a wise and holy friend. A wife and mother of five children, Mrs. Cooper O’Boyle has packed this small volume with jewels of love, insight and holy wisdom culled from her own experiences, Church documents, scripture, saints and more.

This treasure trove of brief quotations, prayers, and meditations is at once a call to prayer and service, and a gift of great consolation to women struggling to live complex and demanding lives in the abiding peace of Jesus Christ.

With our world in crisis and so many influences that tear at the natural dignity of women, this small text is a resounding affirmation of the transformative and revelatory power of a life lived as God intends. With great tenderness and a palpable fondness for her sisters in Christ, Mrs. Cooper O’Boyle affirms, above all, the great God-given beauty, joy and privilege of being a woman.
