Here is a book that will inspire a new outpouring of prayer for healing and vOholiness. This timely work proclaims the joy of prayer and wealth of grace vOentrusted to praying women. Through poignant personal stories and Church vOteaching, eleven Catholic women magnify the Marian vocation of living as vOcontemplatives in action. For personal or group retreats, each chapter ends with vOspiritual reflections: Ponder, Practice, Pray , and the Feminine Wisdom of women vOsaints. The Eucharist, Scripture and Mary are beautifully highlighted in chapters vOfrom these Catholic women:vOvOKathleen Beckman, co-founder of the Foundation of Prayer for Priests, illuminates vOthe nature of prayer, especially as seen in the example of the Blessed Mother, and vOshares her journey from sitting wounded and numb before the Eucharist to being vOset aflame with Divine Love.vOvOJohnnette Benkovic, founder and president of EWTN's Women of Gracer, in a vOstunning explication of the Samaritan woman's encounter with Jesus at the well, vOspeaks intimately to the feminine heart and reveals how Jesus alone can perfectly vOfulfill a woman's deepest desires to love and to be loved.vOvORonda Chervin, Ph.D., professor of philosophy at Holy Apostles College and vOSeminary in Cromwell, Connecticut, tells the extraordinary story of how she, vOdespite being brought up by atheist parents became a fervent Catholic and has vOremained even in the face of unimaginably heavy crosses including the suicide of vOher son.vOvOPia de Solenni, Ph.D., Associate Dean of the Augustine Institute, puts her vOtheological expertise to work and draws on Scripture and Church teaching not to vOmention her experience of growing up as the only girl in a family of boys to unpack vOwhat feminine prayer really means.vOvOMary Healy, S.T.D., professor of Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major vOSeminary in Detroit, describes her reversion after spending nearly all night in vOAdoration and how praise serves as the foundation of her prayer life.vOvOLisa M. Hendey, founder and editor of CatholicMom.com, reflects back on her vOidyllic youth in a good Catholic home, her challenging days as a newlywed to a vOthen non-Catholic spouse, motherhood, the conversion of her husband, and how vOshe learned to see God s fidelity through it all.vOvOJoan Lewis, EWTN Rome Bureau Chief, shares a personal portrait of her family vOlife growing up including the special marriage of her parents and beautifully vOillustrates that prayer is truly the greatest foundation for the family. Of course, vOJoan's characteristic practicality is peppered throughout.vOvOKathryn Jean Lopez, Editor-at-Large of National Review, will leave you vOspeechless. It was to her that Pope Benedict turned for help to share Pope Paul vOVI's message to women which she communicates in these brilliant pages.vOvOMarilyn Quirk, Founder of the international women's ministry Magnificat, recounts vOwith rare humility how she became dead in sin even while remaining a practicing vOCatholic, sending her children to Catholic school, and preserving the exterior vOappearance of piety. With true wisdom, Marilyn explains how to build an authentic vOprayer life without which it is impossible to attain union with Jesus.vOvOVicki Thorn, Founder of Project Rachel, has confronted suffering of a kind and vOweight few have: family deaths, miscarriages, her first 3 children all suffering from vOlife-threatening diseases, and more. In these pages, she shares how prayer vOmiraculously preserved her and her relationships through any darkness.vOvOKelly Wahlquist, Founder of WINE: Women in the New Evangelization, tells her vOstory. It begins at 3 am in her dark family room where she "threw open the window vOof her soul" to a Person she only vaguely knew.
