W.I.N.E. Women in the New Evangelization Fall Book Club: When Women Pray

W.I.N.E. Women in the New Evangelization Fall Book Club






Each week the book club will cover one chapter in the book. On Sundays, beginning October 1st insightful tips for your small group and encouraging reflections for each of that week’s chapters will be posted and emailed directly to you.  These reflections and tips are great to use in a group setting.  Sign up here —> WINE Emails


Why order through the online WINE shop? Simple. WINE is unique in that it is only place you can get the accompanying journal… and your purchase through the WINE shop supports all the wonderful work of WINE, a non-profit ministry. Best of all, buy them as a bundle and save money! (Who doesn’t like a good sale?)

A little about this great book: When Women Pray, edited by Kathleen Beckman, is a book that will inspire a new outpouring of prayer for healing and holiness. This timely work proclaims the joy of prayer and wealth of grace entrusted to praying women. Through poignant personal stories and Church teaching, eleven Catholic women magnify the Marian vocation of living as contemplatives in action.

**Note: You WILL definitely want to purchase the bundle! The accompanying journal is perfect for participants in Read Between the WINES book groups as well as for people reading the book on their own. The journal is a step-by-step guide that provides: 

  • space for personal reflection and an area to answer the Ponder, Practice, Pray questions
  • specific prayer (and explanation of that prayer) that accompanies the theme of each chapter
  • suggested weekly prayer commitment to help you form the habit of prayer
  • comment and discussion question about the saint featured on the “Feminine Wisdom” page
  • coloring page to help you enter into a sacred space of images, colors, and perhaps silence


Gather some friends together and meet in person to read and discuss When Women Pray. We are here to help – WINE makes it fun and easy to do!

The Spitzer Center produces facilitated curricula to strengthen culture, faith, and spirit in Catholic organizations as well as nonprofit and for-profit organizations.

Some highlights of Fr. Spitzer’s professional life:
• President of Gonzaga University from 1998 to 2009. While president, he significantly increased the programs and curricula in faith, ethics, service, and leadership, and led the efforts to build 20 new facilities, increased the student population by 75%, and raised more than $200 million for scholarships and capital projects.
• Currently appearing weekly on EWTN in “Father Spitzer’s Universe.” He has made many other TV appearances including: Larry King Live (debating Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow), the Today Show (debating on the topic of active euthanasia), The History Channel in “God and The Universe,” a multiple part PBS series “Closer to the Truth,” and the Hugh Hewitt Show.

He is currently writing three new books:
1) The Light Shines on in the Darkness: Contending with Suffering Through Faith
(Ignatius Press – late 2016)
2) The Grand Designer: The Evidence for Creation in Modern Physics
