EP 184: The Apostolate of Holy Motherhood with Emily Fossier

Through this episode’s guest, Emily Fossier, I became acquainted with the book The Apostolate of Holy Motherhood, and in the early months of nursing my fourth baby and taking care of my three older children, homeschooling, managing a household and family business, I began reading it. Thus, began this journey towards a holier motherhood. In the quiet moments of naptime, a newborn in my arms, I read the book, learned more of the special calling that mothers have in God’s plan, and dedicated myself with renewed passion to this vocation through a deepening love for both Our Blessed Mother and the Child Jesus.

The book, which has the nihil obstat (nothing in it is contrary to the Catholic faith), details the many messages and visions that an anonymous woman – a wife and mother of young children – received some decades ago and that were documented with the guidance of the woman’s priest. Some of the passages are quite personal to her, others are quite difficult, but they have proved so fruitful.

Emily joined me on this episode to discuss this lovely, life-altering book and how we can relate it to our own lives, here and now, decades later.

  1. The Apostolate of Holy Motherhood Book changed my life by really moving my soul to be a holier devout Catholic Mom. I started reading it in 1992 and keep it in the forefront of my books. Next to the Bible it is the books that has done the most for me in my spiritual walk with the Lord. I was just recommending it today to a young Mom with twins. I wonder if you know how to obtain more copies currently?

    1. It’s good to hear from you, Rita! I’ve been looking for ways to get more copies, but so far, no luck. I’ll keep my eyes out!
