Please Pray for the Soul of Neumann Press Founder

by | Apr 25, 2013 | Books, Prayer Request | 5 comments

In your charity, please pray for the repose of the soul of Dennis McCoy, founder of The Neumann Press.

Our family has been so blessed by the books from Neumann Press – the precious baby records (reprints of the one my husband had from his own childhood!), traditional coloring books our children love, the gorgeous hardcover copy of Sermons of the Curé of Ars we read often at dinner, and so many other inspiring and beautiful Catholic books they have reprinted. We’ve slowly been collecting them all to share with our children.

May God reward him greatly for his dedicated service in promoting and spreading the Catholic faith!

Réquiem ætérnam dona ei Dómine;
et lux perpétua lúceat ei.
Requiéscat in pace. Amen.

    I pray that Dennis McCoy is singing God's praises in Heaven. Like you, our family is grateful for and has benefited from the Catholic books that he published. Requiéscat in pace.

    This is beautiful, Jessica. He was a humble, cheerful, and wise Catholic. A great man. And yes, may his reward be great for all he has done to bring excellent and quality Catholic books to print. – Genevieve

    May God rest his soul and comfort his family.

    We love so many of their books and hope that they will continue to produce many good books.

    We have also enjoyed so many books from Neumann Press. Dennis McCoy is the Uncle of friends of ours…I know the family will miss him. Eternal rest grant to him O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    Dear Jessica,

    Offering him up in prayer! You mention in this that you read at the dinner table sometimes. Would you let me know–since I did not grow up in a traditional Catholic home–what your prayer/reading routine each day is like? Morning prayers? Angelus? Lunchtime? Afternoon? Dinner time? Evening? Scripture reading? Lives of the Saints? How do you fit this into your family schedule? I'm hoping to incorporate more into ours…

    No need to write a post about it, although I'm sure we'd love that!, but even just a simple list-response will do!

    God bless you!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
