Mum’s the Word

It’s like being canonized all over again. About.com’s N.S. Gill has numbered St. Helena among the Top 6 Famous Roman Mothers. Constantine’s mum is, of course, a regular at this blog.

All this talk about Roman moms will probably have you thinking about the mothers you know and what to give them for Mother’s Day. I’ll make my suggestion: my new book, Love in the Little Things: Tales of Family Life.

It’ll make moms smile with recognition, and maybe help them to pray. Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, calls it “a domestic catechism for the domestic church … absolutely delightful and insightful.” You’ll find reviews by Scott Hahn, Curtis Martin, Russell Shaw, and others right here.
