“The coronavirus pandemic has filled us all with anxiety, fear, and loneliness which is natural and expected. Teresa Tomeo’s book, ‘Conquering Coronavirus’ perfectly points us to Jesus who never leaves us alone and who told us ‘be not afraid’. This book is so desperately needed at this time and filled with practical guidance, inspiration, and spiritual support. It needs to be available and distributed in bulk to every parish and diocese in the nation.”
Deacon Timothy P. Flanigan, M.D. Professor of Medicine (infectious diseases) at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
“What a beautiful guide to the great spiritual reawakening we must lead by the way we live our lives! This Coronavirus time is not about Coronavirus so much as it is about our spiritual viruses of lukewarmness and indifference. Pope Francis often talks about how we go through life anesthetized. No more! We cannot afford to. Not if we believe in Jesus Christ! Not if we know His love for us and the truth of what His Resurrection promises! Teresa Tomeo has put together a helpful guide to get and keep us on a road to true conversion. And what a beautiful tribute to her beloved mother and her life of faith! ”
Kathryn Jean Lopez Senior Fellow, National Review Institute & editor-at-large, “National Review;” author, “A Year with the Mystics: Visionary Wisdom for Daily Living”
“The saints and the Scriptures, as well as modern therapists, have a lot to say about fear of death and anxiety over money. These are also the twin worries associated with coronavirus. In ‘Conquering Coronavirus: How Faith Can Put Your Fears to Rest,’ Teresa Tomeo shows us how Christ’s body has endured many such threats throughout her history and how we can learn from our collective experience. In a brisk, personal style, she gathers data and lists resources, collects relevant testimonies and encourages us to not just to endure this moment but to embrace and grow through it. We all know or will know those stricken with coronavirus. Whether they recover or die, our task is to help all we can. This practical guide will be the go-to guide for Catholics who want to be equipped to serve others during this crisis.”
President/CEO Ave Maria Radio
“A timely book that addresses our fears using our faith to help us successfully cope with the current crisis. All people of Christian faiths will benefit from this book. Effective and interesting research with facts that guide us during these turbulent times. What is most powerful about this book are the prayers which give you hope and confidence!”
Author of “Jesus Speaks to Faustina and You”
“The fact that Teresa was able to create this resource even while she was grieving the loss of her mother proves that she practices what she preaches. She shows how God didn’t cause this health crisis, but He allows it so we can help reveal Him to the world. Thus, she underscores the need for us to not let fear overcome our lives, and she gives examples of how obstacles can become opportunities for a stronger relationship with God and each other. Based on real statistics, she gives us a road map on what to do during this time of isolation, pointing to some great examples we can all learn from. That is why I, and so many others, admire her work. This collection of wisdom and spiritual riches from our Catholic heritage will be a welcome gift in this time of pandemic. ”
Fr. Chris Alar
Director of the Association of Marian Helpers
“What a timely book for this current crisis! With her characteristic wit and wisdom, Teresa holds before our eyes powerful witnesses of men, women and children who are responding to the current pandemic in a way that is sure to inspire us to do similar things. And the Resource Chapter is a goldmine!”
Fr. John Riccardo
Executive Director of Acts XXIX
Praise for Conquering Coronavirus!
“I am a nurse and found it very valuable and encouraging. Also I gave the book Conquering Coronavirus to my coworker. The prayers are great.”

“As I began reading Conquering Coronavirus it became quickly apparent that Teresa Tomeo had put a lot of thought into this volume. If anyone who hasn’t read this book thinks it is just about how to get through this Covid-19 crisis, they couldn’t be more mistaken. There isn’t a chapter in this book that anyone (esp. Catholic) cannot find lessons for applicable to other trials and tribulations we as Christians face in life – a death in the family – health crisis – loss of a job – a crisis of faith. Some devotional books you read and then give away. This one is a keeper. You’ll want to come back to it later. Hope this book gets a wide reading. It deserves it. Five stars and two thumbs up!”

St. Corona was a martyr for the faith and was often called upon by Christians throughout the centuries in times of trouble and suffering. We can ask for her intercession today in our fight against the Coronavirus. I wanted to share the link for a beautiful prayer card being offered by our friends at Sophia Institute Press. This would make a comforting gift for yourself as well as family and friends. They are available in packs of 10 or 50. St. Corona pray for us.
