Many Catholics have shared with me that they don’t know how to pray. The “Our Father” and the “Hail Mary," yes. But what’s missing for them is a way to enter more deeply into dialogue with Christ, his Mother, the saints, and our Church community. Heads Bowed helps adults and children in their care to pray meaningfully together during the school year, whether at school or at home. With prayers for each day of class, this book is a wonderful companion for our spiritual walk. To that, I say “Amen!”
Not just for Catholic school teachers, this wellspring of inspiration will be used regularly in our homeschool. Lisa Mladinich inspires through a deep, personal connection with both student and subject and teaches by loving. You will love this book.
This prayer book is perfect for Catholic students and teachers, but I admit to wanting a copy for my home too! It's full of inspiration and practical wisdom and sure to be an invaluable resource for all who use it.
Heads Bowed is your go-to prayer resource for instilling the gift of daily prayer in the hearts and souls of children. Chock full of beautiful, inspirational meditations, this book is perfectly designed to lead you and your children into daily conversation with God. I expect my copy will be dog-eared from daily use and can't wait to pray with this beautiful book!
Lisa Mladinich brilliantly combines the Church's lectionary, feast days, and liturgical seasons with the prayer tradition of dedicating the days and months to specific devotions. Heads Bowed is at once spiritual, liturgical, and doctrinal--an ideal aid for beginning your instruction, or your day, in prayer and union with God. It belongs in every Catholic parish, classroom, and home.
One of the greatest gifts we can give our students is a love of prayer. Lisa Mladinich gives educators and students alike a wonderful gift in this book that inspires a new generation of believers to appreciate the richness of our Catholic faith. From the Holy Trinity to the Communion of Saints to the Rosary and even to virtues like unity, gratitude, reverence, and mercy, a wide variety of topics and vocabulary are reinforced in these prayers and help teach children what they can offer to God. This book is an important resource for any Catholic educator looking for prayer ideas.
