"Fifteen Letters to Lily" offers inspiration to help readers along their Catholic journey. This is an essential companion for Catholic teens, especially those who have recently received or are close to receiving the sacrament of Confirmation.

If you know someone who wants to be Catholic, who has fallen away or wants to be inspired to stay Catholic, this little booklet is for you. Fifteen Letters to Lily is meant to be inspiring while helping the reader to reason back against anti-Catholic rhetoric. While written to a grandchild from her grandfather, it is intended to allow the reader to listen in on the grandfather’s presentation to his grandchild. In this way, the reader can take in the thoughts conveyed and hopefully accepted the perspective presented to the reader. The writings of the saints are used at the end of each of the letters to inspire the reader and back up the author’s reasoning. The summary letter of Fr. Peter Mary, F.SS.R, a Catholic priest, gives hope and direction.
The letters are about various subjects and life issues that everyone faces. This book is intended to give some answers to people needing a path back to the true faith of Jesus Christ. The letters are concise to avoid spiritual indigestion to allow the reader to finish them and thoroughly consider their contents. The author intends that if someone wants their family member, loved one, or personal friend to rethink their theology; they can use this booklet as a gift to start that purpose. One can also give these letters to the youth to aid in their sacrament of confirmation classes. 

​​​​​​"This book is a perfect read for those who wish to learn more about and be inspired by the Catholic faith. For parents who wish for their children to be brought up in the Catholic Church, I would also recommend they give this book a chance." Online book club.

"Everyone should read this book." Aaron Neville, Grammy Award winner

About the author

Fr. Peter Mary F.SS.R Is a Transalpine Redemptorist Catholic priest.
