What they’re saying about Prompt Me to Pray

It is an irrefutable truth that the new evangelization in our time
“depends in great part on the Church of the home.”

(St. John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio, 52).
Monica McConkey has been equipping Catholic families with creativity, fidelity, and fun for decades.
This little book is another gem in that arsenal! It is both simple in presentation and profound in content.
But be forewarned … it could change your life,
and the life of your domestic Church, in powerful and beautiful ways!
~Bishop Scott McCaig, C.C.
Military Ordinariate of Canada

Favorite Prompts to Pray: from our Readers!

One of my first prayer prompts was given to me and also to all students in my grade 4 class in Montreal by our teacher, a Catholic Christian Brother (teaching order of monks). He reminded the class that we were all soldiers of Christ since we had received the sacrament of Confirmation ( 1952).  He asked us to raise our right hand to our forehead and salute Christ quietly, without fanfare, every time we passed by a Catholic Church. Since there were about 5 Catholic Churches on the street car I took to go to school every day, I got lots of practice. The habit stuck, and I still do that today. ~Bruce
