Angelus Press website for a totally unrelated title and saw that they had done a reprint of Mother Love. The price was better, the cover [Yes, I'm guilty of sometimes judging the covers of books.] was more attractive and the book suddenly seemed infinitely more accessible to me. I told my husband about it when they had an awesome Cyber Monday sale that offered a nice discount and free shipping and he ordered it for me as a Christmas gift. It was one of the gifts I was most excited to get.
Up until Christmas day, I didn't know just what I'd find in Mother Love: A Manual for Christian Mothers outside of what I had read in that one brief excerpt. I have to say I'm very impressed with this book. It's a prayer book and an invaluable guide for raising good Catholic children. While some of the writing may come across as old fashioned to modern mothers, the advice in this book is timeless. The prayers are simply beautiful. I have a similar book, called The Christian Mother, which I have reviewed here. I think both of these books are excellent, but if I had to choose a favorite, Mother Love would get my backing.
I highly recommend this book. It really should be a must-have for every Catholic mother who is serious about raising faithful practicing Catholics. It's a great gift idea for the mother who seems to have everything.
