The agreement between the publisher and author for Motherhood Matters was signed in January of 2011 on the Memorial of St. Francis de Sales. The book was released in September 2011 on the Feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.
A newly released book,
Written by Dorothy Pilarski, author,
guest columnist with the Catholic Register,
blogger of Gutsy Catholic Mom and television
personality who appears in
Mothering, Full of Grace produced by
Salt and Light Media has just been
published by the Canadian Catholic Register.
The book is loaded with endorsements:
“In grammar school, when I learned that Esau had sold his birthright for
a mess of pottage, I thought he was very silly. How could an intelligent
person give up a precious gift for a passing gratification? Dorothy Pilarski’s
book is a must read for women who have become ‘female Esaus.’ Satan’s
greatest victory since original sin is to have convinced women that their
‘knighthood’ is a prison. This book offers a precious counter poison. Tolle, lege.”
Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, Catholic philosopher,
theologian and author
“This is an excellent source of home-spun wisdom for mothers,
their daughters and all women of faith. Dorothy has a great style that
is folksy but at the same time she delivers solid truth with passion and humour.”
Sister Ann Shields of Renewal Ministries,
“Honest, personal, inspiring and timely. A delightful book,
with much to say to all of us who care about truth, the Church
and the meaning of holiness.”

“The apostles were dodos, dummies.
But all the smart people in the world at
the time wouldn’t take chances. That is the
same problem we have today.
The world is looking for intellectuals
and the Lord is looking for dummies.
That’s why I’m here.”
