 Our Description

Popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle presents a daily devotional companion for families with young children in Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa: Prayers, Reflections, and Activities for Families. O'Boyle illustrates how to bring Lent home, doing “small things with great love” under the guidance of the St. Teresa of Calcutta, with whom she enjoyed a close friendship.

While many Lenten reflection booklets are for individuals or small groups, this one is formatted specifically for families and draws on the wisdom of Mother Teresa. This daily guide shows parents and children alike how to put her words into practice with practical suggestions on how to live the threefold call of Lent: to fast, pray, and care the poor. Each Sunday’s focus is drawn from the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent and a project for the week ahead is suggested. The booklet is usable in all three Catholic lectionary cycles.


"A chance of a lifetime!"
Can you imagine spending Lent with Mother Teresa? A chance of a lifetime! Donna-Marie’s book will do that exactly for you. Enjoy!
Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R.

"New, refreshing, and exactly what your family needs."
Lent is coming, and you know you should do something spiritual with your family. But, what? You’re exhausted and over-scheduled and the kids are bored with the same traditions and devotions you’ve used for years. You all want something new. Bringing Lent Home is new, refreshing, and exactly what your family needs to bring new life into your Lenten spiritual exercises. Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle knows what it’s like to be a busy parent, and she’s used her experience and expertise to put together a guide that will carry your family through Lent, deepening your faith, increasing your unity, and widening your consciousness of the universal Church along the way. Donna’s gift is now your gift–in the pages of Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa. Marge Fenelon Author of Strengthening Your Family "Encouragement and creative ideas." “Mom Donna” and Mother Teresa are both helpful Lenten companions, offering encouragement and creative ideas for family prayer, fasting, and almsgiving throughout this holy season.
Karen Edmisten
Author of The Rosary: Keeping Company With Jesus and Mary

"I love this book!"
I love this book! A spiritual tome like this never has everything, but Donna-Marie's latest gem has created the exception to the rule. Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa puts "the family that prays together stays together" into action and is the most practical guide to becoming a saint I have ever seen. The only thing about it that disappoints is that it's only for Lent and not for every day of the year. Thank You, God, for blessing us with Donna-Marie and her stunning talent!
