Hendey Presents a Saint Per Week for Catholic Moms

October 10, 2011

Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and bestselling author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms, again offers her guidance for mothers in the nourishing of heart, mind, body, and soul. In her new book, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms, Hendey presents fifty-two saints to act as companions in the many joys—and trials—of motherhood. With charisma and conviction, she applies the wisdom of the saints to a mother’s unique role, highlighting that these individuals “led ordinary lives and yet accomplished extraordinary things.” Hendey chooses men and women whose stories have influenced her personal perspective on motherhood and encourages fellow moms to welcome these Catholic leaders as both role models and long-time friends.

In each of the fifty-two short chapters, one per saint, Hendey provides:

A short biography of the saint

Reflection on the guidance offered by the saint

Traditions and family activities inspired by the saint

Daily scripture passages

A prayer for families to say together

Hendey’s companions include familiar intercessors such as Francis of Assisi, Teresa of Avila, and Mother Teresa, as well as lesser-known figures like Josephine Bakhita and Mother Théodore Guerin. Hendey marks each chapter with a symbol to signify which dimension—heart, mind, body, or soul—the saint is best known to influence and concludes each chapter with a discussion prompt or journaling question to ponder during the week.
