Availability: In stock (can be backordered)
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.

"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!
