Beware of this severely edited version!!!! Apr 26, 2007
Sadly, this wonderful book was poorly edited in a misguided attempt to "update" the text. It is still a great reference, but I advise traditional Catholics to find the original text published by the same author under the title "We and Our Children". The traditional Latin Mass was explained in beautiful detail in the original version, but in this edition, most of the descriptions were eliminated to make it "modern" and match the new Mass from the 1970s. I hope the publisher will reproduce the original, unedited version for those who appreciate the traditional liturgy. I bought both books and one can vividly see how much of our Catholic heritage we have lost when one compares the two editions and sees how much was eliminated.
Great Read, Great Reference Apr 25, 2007
This book was a gift from the Godmother of my youngest of 5 children. It is full of wonderful insights and examples. I use it as more of a reference than anything else, for my college-age daughter who calls with disgust at what professors try to convince her is taught by the Catholic Church to questions she has as she struggles between this world and her morals, and I turn to it for situations that arise all the way down to my youngest child of [..]. I also teach [...]CCD, and use it for so many lessons rather than the watered-down text the Parish uses. It is a MUST for Catholics with children!
"We and Our Children" Mar 21, 2007
This listing surprised me to not include this information... this book is a reprint of Mary Reed Newland's "We and Our Children".
A good perspective Mar 17, 2007
We enjoyed this book cover to cover. Good insights, clear and good stories to carry the message along. Also recommend Jesus in the House by St. Anthony Messenger Press
Highly Recommend Jan 27, 2007
All devout Catholics need to read this. It's wonderful and helpful for me. I get tounge tied when trying to pray with my kids, but I'm learning and this book has helped me so much. There is so much to this book, sometimes I think I don't need my library of parenting books because this covers everything. It's great.
