Let Your Heart Be at Rest

with the Mass Journal for Catholic Moms

What if you could

  • Engage in thoughtful discussion of the readings?
  • Connect Scripture and the Mass to your daily life?
  • Have your own personal space to record meditations on the Sunday readings?

You can, with Until I Rest in You.

Because motherhood changes EVERYTHING.

Not even Mass is the same: before kids, you could hear the homily and surrender yourself to Jesus. After kids, you're bouncing babies, shushing toddlers, and managing sibling squabbles before the Penitential Rite begins. (And man, are you gonna need it.)  

As a mom to three exceptional children, I know the struggle well. I created Until I Rest in You as a resource for Catholic moms longing to engage fully with the Mass. 

UNTIL I REST IN YOU HELPS FILL THE YEARNING IN A MOTHER'S HEART: the desire to rest, to be at peace, and to be fortified for raising saints on earth. 

Great are You, O Lord, and greatly to be praised; great is Your power, and of Your wisdom there is no end...You move us to delight in praising You; for You have made us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.” - St. Augustine, Confessions Book 1

While St. Augustine wasn't a mother, he understood the inmost desire of the human heart. It is a yearning all too familiar to those of us raising children: the desire to rest, to be at peace, and be fortified for raising saints.

Yes, we get graces from the Mass just by being there.

But if you're like me, you long for God's word to be inscribed in your heart. 

You want to  renew your passion for the Eucharist;

embrace the connection between reason and faith;

know the beauty and the truth of Scripture and Tradition;

connect your motherhood to a devotion to the Sacraments, to Our Lady, and the Truth of Holy Mother Church.

As the only Mass journal for moms with an emphasis on finding God's presence in the trenches of motherhood, Until I Rest in You is an excellent tool for guiding your formation in the faith:

​Engage with God's Word

Discussion questions help you gather the meaning of the readings, even if you missed the Liturgy of the Word.
