Description

Popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle offers the second in a series of daily Lenten devotional resources for families with children through the pre-teen years, this time focusing on the life and wisdom of beloved St. Thérèse of Lisieux.

Bringing Lent Home with St. Thérèse of Lisieux: Prayers, Reflections, and Activities for Families provides everything a parent needs to gather the family together for a time of prayer and conversation, including a daily quotation from St. Thérèse and a story about her life. Cooper O’Boyle also offers practical suggestions on how to put into practice each day the threefold call of Lent: to fast, pray, and give alms or care for the poor. On Sundays, the focus is on the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent, and a project for the week ahead is suggested. The booklet can be used with any of the three Catholic lectionary cycles and is designed for use with children through the pre-teen years.

Praise

"Will have a profound impact on the domestic Church."

“Donna-Marie has done something very big for families through the Little Way of St. Thérèse. Bringing Lent Home with St. Thérèse of Lisieux will have a profound impact on the domestic Church because it is designed to help families tune out the noise in their lives and tune into God during the beautiful Lenten season. We all know that the family that prays together stays together. Donna-Marie brings us closer to a Doctor of the Church and, as a result, closer to Christ and each other.”
