Prayer life getting a bit dry? Maybe you would like something new to read and get ideas to ponder about faith. I know that there have times when I’ve searched for a new resource to help me along a dry and just plain boring time in my prayer life.
When I received “Catholic Mom’s Cafe” I began my preliminary scan; the table of contents, acknowledgements, and I usually flip through the contents of the book to get the feel and guesstimate how long it should take me to read the book for my review. What I discovered at the first scan is that this book is one I will take with me during the day and read it during violin lessons and piano lessons, during a 15 minute break at work and possibly during a boring school meeting, shhhh!!
The book is a retreat book for the entire year with each month a concentration of one of the three theological virtues, Faith, Hope, and Love. Each day is divided up into four sections: Ponder is a scripture verse or a quote, Offer is Donna-Marie’s thoughts on the Ponder, then we Pray prayers that are provided in the front of the book, such as: Act of Faith, or Act of Love, and other prayers that she lists for easy reference and then a final thought to Savor throughout the day.
This book is a real treat and I know that I am going to enjoy taking a daily break and be inspired, pray, and ponder my motherhood and my life in light of Holy Scripture and our Holy Mother….and I know you will too!
