Artwork by Catholic sisters, as well as questions and suggestions for deepening the reader's own prayer, accompany the reflections.

Each book is $6 plus shipping and handling. Discounted prices are available for orders larger than 10. Orders must be placed online by March 10. LCWR will print only the amount of copies that are pre-ordered.  Proceeds will help defray the cost of LCWR resources and programs.
