Catholic military women are very special “Soul Sisters”. There s a certain military pride shared amongst them they are in solidarity in a common goal to defend human life, to fight injustice, to protect their country, and support their military husbands, brothers, sons, daughters, cousins, nieces and nephews [or “their military family”]. They have heroically placed their lives on the line on battlefields, as well as in battling military issues on the home front too.

Best-selling and award-winning author Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, an honorary lifetime member of the Military Council for Catholic Women (MCCW) shines a light on these gallant, heroic women who carry on with great faith, hope, humility, and love and whose heroism doesn t remain on the battlefield, but is woven into the very fabric of their lives.

Traditional and original prayers, as well as teachings and inspiration from Jesus, Mary, and the Saints are woven throughout the entire book to give a powerful shot in the arm and to uplift spirits. This book will surely speak to the hearts of military mothers, wives, and women who are serving or have served in the military. It will also be a source of prayer and inspiration for anyone connected to the military the patriotic, and for anyone who would like to learn more about these courageous military women.

FEEDING YOUR FAMILY’S SOUL

Feeding Your Family_cover_FINAL

This book is uniquely suited to come to their rescue. Feeding Your Family’s Soul: Dinner Table Spirituality is a vital tool to enable parents to transform a regular dinner time into a prayerful faith lesson for their elementary school to high school aged children. It will indeed help to fulfill the Catholic Church’s vision for evangelization in the family and beyond.

Through 53 fun and creative faith lessons (one for each week of the year and one extra credit lesson), this one-of-a-kind book will encourage parents and caregivers to seize the opportunity in teaching the Catholic faith to the children (the captive audience waiting to eat!) while gathered at the dinner table, and while reminding them of the value of coming together as a family to break bread and share hearts.

This book bears a foreword by Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers and wonderful endorsements.

Donna-Marie’s book is a real treasure. The family has been called the “domestic church” and it is there that we first learn about God, our prayers, and how to live our Christian life. Donna-Marie certainly offers a valuable tool, because when the family gets together for a meal, it is an appropriate time to share and teach the faith. We are reminded at a meal that we not only feed our body, but we need to feed our soul with God’s word and message.

~ Fr. Andrew Apostoli, C.F.R., Founding member of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and Host of EWTN’s Sunday Night Prime

There is no shortage of studies showing the importance of family meal time. Add in the spiritual component of prayer and teaching the faith and you have, as Donna Marie so eloquently illustrates, a recipe for success.  Follow Donna Marie’s plan and you’ll be fortifying your loved ones in their faith now and in the future.

~Teresa Tomeo, Syndicated Catholic talk show Host and best selling Catholic author

This is a very important book for the Church and the culture today, and will no doubt help shape the hearts and minds of parents and children to be more like the Holy Family. Fr. Patrick Peyton said it best: “The family that prays together, stays together.” When families truly begin to pray together, the culture will experience the love and mercy of Jesus.

~Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers

An altar is also a table.  It is the scene both of self-sacrificial love and of a meal signifying and embodying communion with God and one another.  In Feeding Your Family’s Soul, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle shows us how to help make our dinner table into an altar of worship and love centered around family meal times.  Read this wise and practical book and find a way to help your family become happier and holier.  Taste and see that the Lord is good!

~Mark P. Shea, Author, This is My Body: An Evangelical Discovers the Real Presence

With gentle affection for her readers and an invigorating passion for the Catholic faith, Donna-Marie’s new book is a gift of great value to Catholic parents and grandparents, everywhere. Feeding Your Family’s Soul is a wise and delectable fusion of insights, stories, recipes, and prayers that will inspire and empower you to evangelize your family in the most natural of environments: the sacred space around your kitchen table.

OUR LADY OF FATIMA

Print

Publisher’s description: On May 13, 1917, the Virgin Mary first revealed herself to a trio of shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal. She would appear to them five more times over the course of the year until the great miracle of the sun on October 13, 1917. She brought a message of love and peace that was heard around the world–a sorely-needed antidote to the ravages of World War I. To mark the 100th anniversary of the apparitions, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle provides a one-stop guide to the tradition, history and spirituality of Our Lady of Fatima, including the testimonies of those who have made the pilgrimage and prayers for those who share this devotion.

In Our Lady of Fatima, award-winning author, journalist, pilgrimage host and host of EWTN’s Everyday Blessings for Catholic MomsCatholic Mom’s Café, and Feeding Your Family’s Soul, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle offers a mini-Fatima retreat–an “armchair pilgrimage,” if you will. This collection of prayers, testimonies and reflections will bring to life the events of Fatima and help you find ways to apply Mary’s Fatima message to the nitty-gritty details of your daily life.

Each chapter begins with a quote by or about the Blessed Mother before delving into a key aspect of the story of Mary’s appearances to nine-year-old Lúcia Santos and her cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto. A prayer, a simple reflection and a doable call to action transform this book from a simple historical retelling into a practical devotional.
The Blessed Mother’s Fatima message is needed now more than ever. The uncertainty of global events can seep into our daily worries, creating fear and anxiety that’s difficult to overcome. Our Lady of Fatima is a welcome remedy for that worry. In it, you’ll find a chance to grow in faith and holiness, as well as a needed dose of inspiration, hope and peace in following its advice and suggestions, and in praying the prayers.

LOVELY PAIRING OF GIFTS!

I am super excited to pair beautiful tea cups and saucers with my upcoming book for Catholic women of every state of life. One of the tea cup designs is shown on the left. A little card (which can be used as a bookmark in the book) accompanies the tea cup and saucer and has a story from the book (but a bit paraphrased to fit on the back of the card).

This pairing of tea cup with saucer and book will make a lovely gift for any woman–tea drinker or not! Though I am not a coffee drinker, I am sure that coffee or any other beverage, for that matter will taste just as elegant as a spot of tea in the lovely tea cups.

From the dust jacket:

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle is a Catholic author, a radio and television host, and an inspirational speaker known and admired from coast to coast. Yet with all of her public exposure, she has revealed very little about her personal history, that is, until now. When she discovered that sharing her struggles gives encouragement to others, she was persuaded to write this story of her life.

Growing up in a Polish-American Catholic family, Donna-Marie was blessed with hard-working parents who provided a stable home for their eight children. At times her childhood was golden and carefree, but other times it was tarnished by pain that she felt was best left unspoken as she sought God for help and strength.

After she left home after high school, her path took some harrowing turns. A Vietnam veteran fiancé snapped and held her against her will. She suffered pregnancy loss, serious illness, divorce, and single motherhood. Perhaps her greatest trial was an epic custody battle in which she needed to defend both her reputation as a mother and the safety of her five children.

Yet through all the dark valleys, Donna-Marie kept the fire of her faith burning. Helping her to see the beauty of the crosses in her life, and to rely on the presence and the providence of God, were saintly souls who became her friends and mentors. One of these was Blessed Mother Teresa, who was her confidant and spiritual mother for ten years.

“This candid and poignant account pierces the heart and leaves the reader changed.”
— Johnnette Benkovic, Founder, Women of Grace®

“A courageous, sometimes stunningly personal memoir. Donna-Marie reminds us that everyone gets a turn on the via Dolorosa.”
— Elizabeth Scalia, The Anchoress at Patheos.com

“A gripping spiritual adventure telling of God’s faithfulness in times of terror and abuse.”
— Mark Shea, Author, By What Authority

“Runs the gamut of virtue and vice, flesh and spirit, demonic and holy. Her extraordinary life gives hope to all.”
— Jim Pinto, Co-Host of EWTN’s @ Home with Jim and Joy

“For anyone who wishes to move beyond anger and resentment, this book is an answer to prayer.”
— Mike Aquilina, Author, The Fathers of the Church

Andrew Wisdom, Dr. Tom Neal, and Greg and Jennifer Willits.

NEW for Lent 2016!

Pope_Francis_Cover

Known for his humility and concern for the poor, Pope Francis has been an inspiration to millions of Catholics and non-Catholics alike since he became the Church’s first Jesuit pope in 2013.

In Bringing Lent Home with Pope Francis, popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, offers Pope Francis as a guide through Lent. Guided by the threefold Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, the booklet offers inspiring stories, practical ideas for family prayer, easy-to-do activities, and suggestions for conversations.

Building on the popularity of Bringing Lent Home with St. John Paul II, Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa and Bringing Lent Home with St. Thérèse of Lisieux, this edition provides the same practical elements: a quotation from Pope Francis, a story about his life, and practical suggestions for living the threefold call of Lent—prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Parents can enhance their own daily prayer by using the booklet’s reflections for parents. On Sundays, families focus on the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent, and Cooper O’Boyle suggests a project for the week ahead. The booklet can be used with any of the three Catholic lectionary cycles.

Previous books in the series have been praised by parents, catechists, and pastors alike as helpful, creative, and transformative resources.

 Catholic Prayer Book for Mothers

Catholic Prayer Book for Mothers
Full of inspiration and encouragement for all mothers!

 

Excerpt (from Introduction):

How can anyone begin to explain the countless indescribable blessings, joys, and rewards interwoven in the tapestry of motherhood? Along with those remarkable moments in a mother’s life, of course, are also woven the sacrifices and sorrows; even in these, God’s grace abounds to mothers just for the asking. Our Lord certainly favors mothers. After all, He actually enters into a partnership with them to create human life. What an incredible mystery and miracle!…Whatever mothering role she plays, the power of a mother’s prayer cannot be underestimated. And our good Lord also knows you would welcome more time for prayer and quiet times to listen to His promptings in your soul. But a busy household can be very far from quiet and time itself can seem like a luxury. It would actually be wrong for a mother to drop everything to kneel to pray. Especially as her baby is crying for her attention, a sick child is in need of her care, or her family is waiting for dinner. A mother’s time is truly not her own…

Prayer excerpt:

Thank you, dear Lord, for the miraculous vocation of motherhood You have blessed me with. At times, I may not be able to fathom the intensity of the miracles that are worked in human hearts throughout the seasons of my vocation as mother. By Your graces and love for me, I trust that I acy as Your instrument in this world–first to my own family, and then, reaching ot to others. Please continue to work through me as I work out my own salvation and that of my family. Help me to lead others to You by my life and love.

THE HEART OF MOTHERHOOD: FINDING HOLINESS IN THE CATHOLIC HOME

 

 

A wonderful encouraging book for Catholic mothers, adoptive mothers, stepmothers, godmothers, and grandmothers, $16.95     

 



When dirty dishes and laundry pile up, it’s easy to believe that the call to sanctity is for someone else. But this inspiring book written by a Catholic mother of five and based on the teachings of Mother Teresa shows us how faith can support mother's in their most holy task—raising children.
With guidance for a deeper prayer life amid the chaos, we learn that our entire lives as mothers can become a prayer. With anecdotes, devotions, original prayers, helpful tips, an inspiration for achieving loving communication with God, this book helps mothers keep their sanity intact while seeking the sanctity to which everyone is called.
Excerpt:

“We cannot all be Blessed Mother Teresas. We cannot and should not (those of us with small children to raise) drop everything and run off to Calcutta or some other poverty-stricken area to try and change the world. We can, though, in our own families, be instrumental in creating major changes. For a mother, this is far more meritorious than trying to convert the entire world, believe it or not!”

Prayer Excerpt:

 Bless Our Domestic Church

Oh, Lord, you have blessed me with the sacred gift of the family. You have put my children in my care to raise in a loving home. Whether we live in a palace or under a tree, we are a family. You bless our comings and goings, our times together and times apart when we look to you for grace and love. Help me to see the sacred beauty in my domestic church where many prayers are voiced to you throughout the care of my family and household. Please continue to strengthen me and give me peace in my vocation. Bless us all this day, Lord, as we live together, pray together, eat together, and work together in the blessedness of our family. Amen.

Sample excerpt from Recipe Card from book:

A Savory Broth of Unforgettable Teachings

“How do I get my family to spend more time together and treat Sundays as the Lord’s day?”

I set the tone in my home for Sundays, and I also set the parameters and expectations for my family regarding Mass and Sunday dinner: not planning unnecessary shopping trips by fostering an atmosphere of rest and fun with friends and relatives, and hopefully even finding a quiet time to ponder and pray.

 

Excerpt from book:

“I remember when I was a little girl drying dishes after dinner each evening while my mother washed. I never thought of it being a painful or annoying chore. I actually enjoyed it because I was doing something with my mother. I was always bursting at the seams to let my mother in on the latest clues I had discovered in the many adventures of the Nancy Drew books I was reading at the time. She listened intently as I chattered away to her. She seemed very interested in me recounting the stories. In no time, the dishes were all clean, dried, and put away. There were other times when–in between the Nancy Drew talk–I could casually insert something that was on my mind. It was my mother’s and my time to talk as she passed the clean dishes to me, an I dried them and put them away.

Don’t be afraid to get your kids involved with household chores. You can make it personal by investing time in your conversations with them while you are busy with your tasks. As a mother, I have found that sometimes it is much easier to have a discussion about an important or sensitive topic while doing something side by side rather than face-to-face with our children. Children are more apt to open up to us while we are spending time with them…”

 

“Grace Cafe is the “cookbook” we each wish we had for living life as a Catholic wife and mother – a realistic, yet very prayerful guide towards living out our vocation.

When reading this book, I found myself reflecting back to younger days with my now teenage sons and wishing I’d had this resource back then! Donna-Marie reminds us in Grace Cafe that mothering is a lifelong role filled with many joys and a few struggles too. She gracefully gives wisdom for dealing with all ends of the mothering spectrum.

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle’s books are always firmly rooted in Catholic doctrine and filled with references from the Catechism, scripture and papal encyclicals. And yet, Donna-Marie has a true knack for helping this sometimes heady material seem both relevant and accessible. When you read Grace Cafe, you will be both edified and inspired – I can hear Donna-Marie’s soothing voice and uplifting words like a warm hug from a special friend in both books.

Buy two copies – one for you, and one for a beloved friend or family member. Grace Cafe is one to share and enjoy over and over!”~Lisa Hendey, author and founder of Catholic Mom.com

FROM THE INTRODUCTION:

“The gift of conceiving and carrying a human life within one’s own body–under one’s heart– and then giving birth to and raising this little person is almost beyond depiction-and nothing short of miraculous. The gift of a child entrusted to a woman through adoption is also an incredible blessing.

The vocation of motherhood is a sublime privilege and am awesome responsibility. By partaking in a partnership with God, through her marital vows, a mother experiences a special communion with the mystery of life as it develops within her very being. In the case of adoption,a mother also experiences a motherly bonding and communion with the new life that has been entrusted to her. Blessed Pope John Paul II told us that this communion “is decisive in laying down the foundation for a new human personality” as she raises her child. Mothers are also remarkably responsible to some degree for the sanctification of their spouses and their children.

I wish to impress upon mothers what a gift it is to be a mother. Our vocation is filled to the brim with blessings, abounding with joy, beauty, and grace when we wholeheartedly embrace it with prayerful hearts!”

MOTHER TERESA AND ME: TEN YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP

$14.95 each

 


A brush with fame blossomed into something far more spiritual, much longer lasting –infinitely more beautiful…

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle will never forget the first time she laid eyes on Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Hunched, frail, shorter than one of Donna’s own children, the aging servant of the poorest of the poor cut an unassuming figure awaiting the start of Mass with her Missionary of Charity sisters. They would speak briefly after the liturgy – Mother Teresa wanted to meet the mother of such reverent and grace-filled children – and then spend the next ten years intermittently sharing hopes, dreams, and prayers through the mail and in face-to-face conversations.Mother Teresa and Me, Donna-Marie invites you to step inside her deeply personal experiences with one of the greatest souls of modern times. Take her up on the offer and don’t be surprised if you, too, find your heart blessed and your soul inspired by the diminutive nun who left an enormous impression on Donna-Marie – and on the whole world.

“Also, after that week end, I would never again look at a piece of imperfectly fresh fruit with disgust. Each day the women from the shelter, the sisters, and I prepared food for the afternoon and evening soup-kitchen meal from fruits and vegetables donated by local markets. The gifts were the stores’ throwaways, most of the items being slightly spoiled  or simply too far past the “sell-by” date to sell to paying customers. The sisters accepted every edible offering with great appreciation…”

This book was re-released in the 2nd Edition by the Our Sunday Visitor Publishing Company. It contains scans of some of the letters that Mother Teresa sent to Donna-Marie. The second edition is very close to the first edition with a couple of small additions.

Rooted in Love: Our Calling as Catholic Women

 

 

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, bestselling author and popular EWTN television and radio personality, accompanies Catholic women through the ups and downs of their lives, encouraging them to be reflections of Christ in all things. With warmth and candor, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle demonstrates why she is so beloved by her readers, viewers, and listeners. Through sometimes-unexpected stories from her own journey, she shows that being a faith-filled Catholic woman does not mean being perfect. Rather, in the midst of parenting difficulties, marital problems, economic hardships, and sickness–among other challenges–one finds strength in Christ and in the wisdom and community of the Church. She highlights how the sacraments, the virtues, prayer, Mary and the saints, the works of mercy, and various devotions and practices all offer women grace and guidance for their lives.

Over twenty years ago, Mother Teresa gave Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle a blessed Miraculous Medal, and she has never taken it off. To date, Donna-Marie has given away thousands of Miraculous Medals. But what is the Miraculous Medal–and why is it considered miraculous? Why is it important for us today? You’ll learn the answers to these questions, and you’ll also discover: The origin and history of the Miraculous Medal,
how the medal got its name, the story of St. Catherine Labouré, and more.
The author has collected many contemporary stories of the Miraculous Medal’s attraction and impact. Also provided is a section of prayers and devotions, including the perpetual novena prayer, spiritual benefits, and more. This is an informative, fascinating, and inspiring book, designed to stir the hearts of those who aren’t familiar with the Miraculous Medal’s miraculous powers through the Blessed Mother’s intercession, as well as those who are.

CATHOLIC MOM’S CAFE

5

Description: Motherhood is a miraculous vocation – sometimes the miracle is just making it through the day!

Let’s face it: being a mom is not for the faint of heart. Too often we just hit the ground running without giving our faith a second thought. This collection of quick “mini-retreats for moms” can change all that.

Consider these your spiritual “daily vitamins” that will energize you and help you find the faith, hope, and love you’ll need to be the mom God wants you to be – today and every day.

  • Ponderquotes from the Bible and other spiritual readings
  • Offer yourself to the Lord through an easy activity or idea
  • Pray suggested prayers that match the daily theme
  • Savor a little “sound bite” to carry throughout the day

Author, speaker, and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle knows what it’s like to be a busy mother who has to carve time out of her day for the Lord or it just won’t happen. With five kids of her own, she developed this book to fit into a mom’s lifestyle.

 

One woman on Amazon said, “I love this book. I received it on Nov. 11th and read the “ponder, offer, pray, & savor” for that day and was hooked. I look forward to this every day and it is inspiring to say the least. The “savor” is helpful because it really does stay with you through the day. It helps you know what you will be spiritually conscious of as you go about the day. The author’s way of writing is delicate, practical and to the point. It’s wonderful to know there are women like this still out there. A joy to read and very relatable for anyone. I like how the prayers are in the front of the book to reference back to. I feel I’m actually doing something structured and purposeful for the Lord when I’m short on time. This would make a GREAT gift for anyone.”
