Reviews - What do customers think about 100 Names of Mary: Stories and Prayers?
Such a help to my devotional life Apr 29, 2008
For the price of this book, you get some fantastic information, not too deep, but meaty enough to be interesting in a "knowledge" way or a devotional way. The prayers are especially thought-provoking. A traditional and a modern prayer are included for each title, and they are rich enough to return to again and again. A real boon for those with a devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
From the Author Feb 19, 2002
Perhaps the most popular saint of all, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, has come to be known by innumerable titles of devotion-some lists include more than six thousand titles-reflecting her many qualities. Some people call her the Blessed Mother. Others, the Blessed Virgin Mary-BVM for short-or the Virgin, Our Lady, or, simply, Mary. From Ark of the New Covenant to Virgin of Tenderness, from Our Lady of All Nations to Queen of Peace, this proliferation of titles reflects the different ways people relate to Mary. Calling upon Scripture, the writings of the early Church, the pronouncements of the saints, papal statements, and recent biblical and theological scholarship, 100 Names of Mary provides historical and theological explanations of the origins of one hundred of Mary's most popular and intriguing names from around the world and across the Christian millennia. Each of the names also includes both traditional and newly written prayers of intercession to Mary that reflect the particular charisms of her titles. Together with an inspiring new Litany of Mary, the stories and prayers in this book provide a portrait of Mary as mother, companion, disciple, apostle, and advocate who continues to guide the people of God on the path to holiness.
