Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Companion to Mary?

Missing Mary?  Sep 8, 2007
Mary Kathleen Glavich gives us rich fare for expanding and our relationship with Mary. We are invited to reconsider Mary from many viewpoints--from the author's personal reflection and research, and stories and anecdotes from many sources throughout the ages. We are invited into a new intimacy with Mary, this woman of first century Palestine, Mother of Jesus, wife of Joseph, our sister, our friend, our source of Wisdom and comfort.... Each page invites reflection on this woman unique in the Christian story and a part of our own stories.
 
Excellent Resource on Mary  Aug 21, 2007
Mary comes alive within the pages of Sister Glavich's new book. She is placed in context of the first century with details of daily life in that time period. Scripture, Tradition, and historical data support a clear biographical description of Mary's participation in some of the most important events in Christianity. Readers see Mary as a faithful Jewess, Mother of God, perfect disciple of Christ, and sorrowful mother.

The Catholic Companion to Mary also contains sidebars with tidbits of interesting Marian information, summaries of key apparitions, and ways to honor Mary in the liturgy and with flowers, Scapulars, and prayers. In addition the book includes instructions on praying the rosary. Interior art by Dan Paulos and Mary Jean Dorcy, OP adds a lovely touch to this excellent resource.
 
Flesh-and-Blood Mary  May 16, 2007
Author and religious educator Mary Kathleen Glavich, SND, has chosen the perfect title for her latest work. The narrative is charmingly personal, and a wealth of supplementary material is offered in margin notes and offset sidebars containing quotations, trivia, short prayers, and references to web sites and scripture passages. The book is decorated with a dozen black and white silhouette-style renderings, many of them depicting Mary with the child Jesus.

The first 16 chapters, ranging from three to ten pages each, portray Mary's life from the immaculate conception to the assumption "as a flesh and blood person" based on research, theological study, and personal experiences of Catholics through the ages and around the globe. The sixth chapter recounts Mary's major appearances on earth, and the last four chapters treat devotion to the Blessed Virgin in terms of liturgies, medals, and "crownings"; the rosary; more than 25 prayers; and a Mary-themed concert.

Through it all, the author delivers on her promise to "bring Mary more into focus" so that readers may strengthen their relationship with her and with God.
