Mary is not a project to be finished and put away. She is not someone to simply learn about; she is someone to yearn for. She is a cherished gift from God, a refuge for us to turn to again and again! Now, with the unique and wonderful Mondays with Mary, A Celebration of the Marian Feasts Throughout the Year at your side, you and your family can come to know the Blessed Virgin in a loving and special way.
Written by a Catholic mother of four, Mondays with Mary was the answer to 1) her need to delve deeper into the mysteries of Our Lady and 2) her desire to share that love and devotion in a way that would appeal to her children. The first thing you'll notice is how the sections correspond with the titles of Mary from the Litany of Loreto. Brilliant! There is so much symbolism and beauty in the litany; it represents every aspect of Our Lady's life, and her free and loving gift of herself to the world. The author uses a rich combination of scripture, tradition and the lives of the saints to describe each feast day (how many Marian Feast Days can you name?) followed by her inspired, creative devotional activities and recipes. You'll be happy to have this book to help you guide your family to Jesus through Our Blessed Mother in a loving, creative and relaxed way. Glossy cover paperback, 185 pages, 8" x 10".
