Books by Mary Cooney


With an energizing zeal and drive, Mary shares with us the wisdom that has come from the highs and lows of parenthood, intermingled with the inspiration she has received through prayer and the Bible.

From the virtues of mercy, kindness, and patience-virtues abundantly needed in the family setting-to the riches of the sacramental life, Mary shows us how to teach our children that the path to living an extraordinary life is found through ordinary actions and habits of everyday living. – Scepter Publishers

I love this book(!) because Mary Cooney ‘gets’ motherhood: “Feeling inadequate is a wonderful place to begin!” she says. Drawing on the wisdom of Scripture, the Catechism, the Popes, the Saints, and Church history, and packed full of Mary’s own personal experience and story, Evangelizing Our Children With Joy is a wonderful combination of the lofty and the practical, and is a treasure trove for meditation on God’s wonderful plan for motherhood and bringing our children to the Lord. Realistic yet hopeful, spirit-soothing and mission-inspiring, I believe mothers will find Mary’s book full of soul-striking guidance, encouragement and spiritual consolation. This will be a wedding present for all my daughters and future daughter-in-laws! – Holly Pierlot, author “A Mother’s Rule of Life”, Sophia Institute Press.

This workbook is intended as a companion to 57 Stories of Saints, by Anne Heffernan. It contains reading comprehension questions for 20 of the saint stories in Heffernan’s compilation. These questions are geared to students in the third to fifth grade. They are meant to encourage slow and careful reading of the text and to draw attention to important details about the lives of the saints. The ultimate goal, however, is to help children internalize the virtues of the saints and understand more deeply the universal call to holiness.
