  • Dont cry over spilled milk. Transcend it. Pope John Paul II wrote that the little domestic Church, like the greater Church, needs to be constantly and intensely evangelized: hence its duty regarding permanent education in the faith. Thats a tall order for busy Catholic mothers. You might even say its as big as a house. You wouldnt want to clean the whole thing in one fell swoop, but if you take it one room at a time youll get the job done. In a systematic course thats equally useful for groups as for individuals, this talented author shows how to remodel a home , and form a family , after the spiritual design of Holy Mother Church.

Donnas warm words invite you into the home and guide you step by step through the teachings on the domestic church.

Reading this book, pondering the reflections, and applying the thoughtful questions to your own life will be time well spent, and when youre done you will feel refreshed, fulfilled, comforted, as well as affirmed in your efforts to build a holier family.'

    Teresa Tomeo, author, speaker, and syndicated Catholic talk show host

    The Domestic Church: Room By Room is so much more than a mothers study guide for women who want to deepen their understanding of their vocations. It is an exploration of Catholic teaching it relates to our roles as women, wives, mothers, and citizens of the world at large. Referring back to Scripture, papal encyclicals apostolic letters, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the words of the great saints, Donna weaves together the life story of every Catholic woman, regardless of her age, background, family situation, or career choice. Through stories from her own life, including the personal friendship she shared with Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Donna demystifies the domestic church, offering concrete ways to find joy and spiritual fulfillment in the "nitty-gritty, humble work" of our daily lives.
