Kathy Coffey’s latest book, The Best of Being Catholic, was recently reviewed by Spirit & Life Magazine by Mary S. Sheridan. She explains that while Catholics have heard much bad news over the past year, “Kathy Coffey tells the “light” and “hope,” through an eclectic mix of reflections, stories (her own and those of others), facts, and information—all positive—about the Catholic Church today.”
Sheridan concludes that given the book’s focus on Catholic culture, it would be appropriate for new or inquiring Catholics, “But its real value, in my opinion, is in reminding discouraged Catholics that there is more to the Church than problems.”

The National Federation of Priests’ Councils recently reviewed Kathy Coffey’s latest book, The Best of Being Catholic, calling it “uplifting and refreshing.” The review explains: “Coffey reminds readers of the assuring and powerful treasures and practices available in the Church, but are rarely heard about in the day-to-day bustle of post-modern life.”
The Best of Being Catholic was also recently reviewed by Coffey’s grandson:
We’re not sure if he made it to this section in chapter one:
“Even Catholic toddlers learn they are God’s daughters and sons. They know themselves beloved and precious to the Great Lord of all the Universe. And that, when you weigh 37 pounds and have droopy socks, is an empowering message. Our true destination and authentic home, Catholics learn early on, isn’t only the messy, violent, unfair world where we spend a lot of time, but the “many mansions” of the Father’s house. ”
