When Women Pray:  Eleven Catholic Women on the Power of Prayer


For those seeking the deeper contemplative prayer of Mother Seton, this book is a wonderful resource with which to reflect and delve deeper into your prayer life. Written by Kathleen Beckman, this small but powerful book is the perfect size to carry with you.  This timely work proclaims the joy of prayer and wealth of grace entrusted to praying women. Through poignant personal stories and Church teaching, eleven Catholic women magnify the Marian vocation of living as contemplatives in action. Ideal for personal or group retreats, each chapter ends with spiritual reflections: Ponder, Practice, Pray , and the Feminine Wisdom of women saints. The Eucharist, Scripture and Mary are beautifully highlighted in chapters from inspiring Catholic women.  The book includes:

  • Overviews of each mystery with biblical quotes and images to help you establish context and focus your mind.
  • Insights on each mystery from the writings of the saints and Church Fathers.
  • Personal applications for each mystery so you can further apply these mysteries to your own life and invite God to be a part of it.
