New anthology "My Modern Day Saints" by Cathy Molloy and Fr. Darren Brennan has been released, a collection of inspired writings on the mysteries of the Catholic faith

“My Modern Day Saints: Reflections From the Heart of God” by Cathy Molloy, with introduction and commentary by Fr. Darren Brennan, has been released worldwide. This 618-page anthology contains the profound and moving spiritual writings of Cathy Molloy, chronicling many mystical experiences she received in prayer between 2009 and 2013. These beautiful and uplifting reflections cover many areas of Catholic spirituality and doctrine.

As the Archangel Raphael led young Tobias on a journey, so Cathy has been led on a remarkable journey of prayer through the immaculate Heart of Mary. Recognizing the authenticity of her mystical experiences, Fr. Darren Brennan began assembling Cathy’s writings, eventually composing this book to make them available to all.

Cathy Molloy’s life itself serves as an inspiration. Born in Belfast in 1967 with severe Spina Bifida, Cathy’s early years were marked by surgeries and hospitalizations – but also by a deep love of God and Mary. Despite her health challenges, and growing up in the midst of the Northern Irish Troubles, Cathy was determined to live life to the fullest, marrying her husband Marty in 1993, giving birth to their daughter Sarah the following year, and devoting herself to providing a loving home for foster children.

Cathy’s mystical experiences began around 2001 and returned with renewed vitality after a spiritual retreat in 2009. Confiding in Fr. Brennan, her spiritual advisor, Cathy began to record her visions and inspired reflections in her diaries. Now, through this hope-filled book, readers from all walks of life can share in the wisdom and love overflowing from these writings. Through Cathy’s incredible story and Fr. Brennan’s commentary, the reader will discover how Heaven is attainable on Earth through the Heart of Mary.

My Modern Day Saints (ISBN: 978-1-961532-02-1) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The paperback retails for $29.99, and the ebook retails for $4.99. Review copies and interviews are available upon request.

From the back cover:

My Modern Day Saints is a commented anthology of writings from the unpublished diaries of Catherine Molloy, composed almost entirely between 2009-2013. Although they fall under the general category of Christian Mysticism, it is almost impossible to put a label on these writings. This is partly due to their expansive scope which embraces multiple aspects of traditional Christian spirituality and doctrine, but also due to their vibrant originality. Faithful to Church teaching, the diaries will be a breath of fresh air to men and women of good will seeking to rediscover the evangelising power and vitality of the Gospel in our day.
