When your loved one falls away from the Church, treat them gently and with great love.

Supplement for Book Clubs and Parish Groups

About this Book:

"The tragedy of God's longing, and of ours, is that even God, despite his omnipotence, chooses not to guarantee our loved one's return to the practice of the faith. God does not force anyone to be in relationship with him; if he did, it would not be a relationship of love." -From the Introduction

When someone you love leaves the Catholic Church, they need a great deal of prayer and love. However, approaching that person with the charity that they deserve and need can be confusing. Sr. Theresa Noble, a former fallen-away Catholic, gently voices ways to talk with and love those who have fallen away.

Starting with her story, Sr. Theresa covers the necessary parts of talking with those who have left the Church, told through the lens of the Parable of the Prodigal Son. She addresses the virtues and traits of the father, and how they should apply to approaching those you love. With gentleness, she encourages you to approach them where they are, while emphasizing the importance of the faith.

Above all, she reminds you that God loves your Prodigal even more than you do. With her gentle encouragement, she will lead you to continue to hope for their conversion, so that you might share the joy of the Father when The Prodigal You Love returns home.

Features & Benefits:

  • Offers practical advice for approaching fallen away Catholics with love
  • Written by a formerly fallen away Catholic
  • Includes lectio divina with the Parable of the Prodigal Son

About the Author:

Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP is a former atheist who, thanks to the grace of God, has returned to the faith she was raised in and now tries to help others bring their loved ones back to the faith. A few years after returning to the Church, she heard God calling her, so she left her job in Silicon Valley to join the Daughters of St. Paul. She now lives in Miami, where she prays, evangelizes, bakes bread, and blogs at Pursued by Truth.

What Are People Saying about this Title?

"Sr. Theresa Noble really understands what works - and what doesn't - when it comes to reaching out to fallen-away loved ones. This book should be required reading for any modern Catholic."
Jennifer Fulwiler, author of Something Other Than God

"What could be more important than loving a soul to heaven? Sr. Noble is gifted at sharing her wisdom that helps bring loved ones home to Jesus and his Church!"
Tom Peterson, author/founder of Catholics Come Home

"An insightful guide to reaching the de-churched from an often-overlooked perspective. Sr. Theresa Noble has been there and back. A must-read for all those with loved ones they wish to call home."
Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran, authors of Rebuilt and Tools for Rebuilding
