Forgiving Mother: A Marian Novena of Healing and Peace Audio Book
Marge Steinhage Fenelon knows the pain, fear, hopelessness, insecurity, resentment and anger of being raised by a troubled mother. She also knows the way out: Mary.
In Forgiving Mother, Fenelon deftly explores the ways the Blessed Virgin can provide comfort and healing if you truly desire it. Drawing from personal experience as well as wisdom from Church documents, Scripture, and the saints, Fenelon sketches a path from despair to peace. She offers concrete steps and prayers to help you deal with the painful memories, emotions and fears that are rooted in your past.
Part memoir, part spiritual guide, Forgiving Mother is a workbook for healing even the most deeply rooted pain. It also includes a novena, which you can pray alongside each chapter or as a final step in the healing process. You will likely find solace from going through the novena again and again, as you’ll find healing is a cyclical process—not a linear one.
You are a child of Mary and she loves you tenderly. She really, truly is your mother—given to you by our Lord as he hung dying on the cross. Jesus wants you to accept his mother as your own and to develop a deepening relationship with her so that she can fill the void that the past has left inside of you. And in her kind, motherly way, she will. What’s more, she will lead you to her son who, as God, is the ultimate source of all healing and peace.
Pray through it, meditate on it, and let Mary’s love sink into your heart and soul. Above all, be gentle with yourself. This is your healing process, and no one else’s. With the Blessed Mother’s help, you can become the whole, healed and truly cherished person you were meant to be.

I am the brother of Marge Steinhage Fenelon and the eldest of four siblings. One might think my giving a positive review of Marge’s book “Forgiving Mother” would be biased in her favor. That would be purely coincidental. Marge Steinhage Fenelon has been a fervent Catholic since her early teen years. Her book honestly and vividly relates real-life experiences with our mother and demonstrates how Marge (and her three siblings) survived to become strong and responsible adults. I am elated and proud that Marge wrote this powerful book. The novenas that she appropriately included provide a welcomed affirmation in the belief and reliance on Mary for her support and prayers to our Lord Jesus Christ. I view the all-embracing good that comes from this publication to be an offer of healing and comfort to many millions who have had similar or worse family experiences. The shining light to follow is Mother Mary leading us to the Lord Himself. I hope I speak for many in saying, “Thank you very much for this book, Marge.”
