One of the most painful experiences of a Catholic parent is to watch your children grow lukewarm in the Faith or walk away from it entirely. It can lead to feelings of abandonment and despair and turn conversations that were once easygoing into painful occasions of testiness and discord.
In this riveting book, EWTN Radio personalities Jerry Usher and Debbie Georgianni present deeply moving stories from listeners whose loved ones have left the Catholic Church. They are stories of heartache and sacrifice, but also hope and redemption.
You’ll discover how families have coped — successfully and unsuccessfully — with the fallen-away loved ones, prayed for their return, and worked with the grace of God to reach out and touch their hearts. You’ll learn how they placed their fears and anxieties at the foot of the Cross and implored God with constancy, deep compassion, and unwavering fervor.
Almost every Catholic today knows someone who has wavered or fallen away from the Faith. These pages will show you how others have successfully dealt with this age-old but rapidly accelerating problem, and why you should never lose hope.
