NEWS RELEASE: Motherhood Matters

     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.”  
            Michael Coren, author of Why Catholics are Right,

     “This is a passionate and compelling book. Dorothy has 
      lovingly woven together a collection of articles, letters, 
      quotes and prayers that are guaranteed to stir a Catholic mother’s heart.”
             EWTN personality Donna Cooper O'Boyle, 

   “This thought-provoking book is jam-packed with inspiration, 
    hope and practical tools that will comfort and inspire women of every age.” 
              Colleen Hammond author of Dressing with Dignity, 

   "This is a terrific compilation of writings about the triumphs
      and tragedies of being a mother in today's world. Dorothy
    .provides concrete suggestions and inspirational vignettes 
     that will encourage any woman in her mothering journey."
         Lisa Hendey, author of A Book of Saints, 
    "Dorothy Pilarski writes with profundity and wit about matters 
     practical and divine. Full of anecdotes and humour, this book 
     makes us take an honest look at the lives of women today and helps
     us to focus on what matters most."
                  Elena Maria Vidal, author of Trianon,

       "The author mines personal epiphanies to extract practical 
      nuggets of gold relevant to all Catholic mothers. They’ll want 
        to attach the essay ‘Raising Catholic Kids’ to the refrigerator door!"
               Josephine Nobisso, writing consultant and author of 40 books 
    "Dorothy Pilarski is a voice in the wilderness. 
      Full of courage, wit and grace, her candid book is 
       a sincere invitation to discover, or perhaps re-discover, 
       the rich universal treasures of the one Holy Catholic and Apostolic faith."
    Sharon DiCecco host on HMWN--

“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.”
