Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle's newest publication, "Catholic Saints Prayer Book" has landed her an invitation to Rome.
Or, maybe it's the other three books she's written that got the attention of the Pontifical Council for the Laity.
Or maybe it's the two books that are scheduled to come out later this year.
Actually, it's probably all of the above.
Either way, in February the New Milford author will head to Rome to attend the international conference, "Woman and man, the humanum in its entirety."
She will be one of 250 guests from five continents attending the meeting. The letter from the Pontifical Council states that the objective is to "review the progress made over the past 20 years in the field of the advancement of women and the recognition of their dignity." (Continued here.)
