Item description for Behold Your Mother: Priests Speak about Mary by Stephen J. Rossetti...

The best-selling author of the influential Joy of Priesthood has assembled fascinating reflections from nine esteemed fellow priests who share how their devotion to the Blessed Mother has supported their life and ministry. Though overlooked in recent times, devotion to the Blessed Mother has long been a foundational part of priestly spirituality. Behold Your Mother seeks to renew this practice for both younger clergy and those with years of priestly life. From stories of childhood devotion to the Blessed Mother to personal encounters with some of the great spiritual figures from recent times, these essays have both a personal and practical character that priests-and the laity as well-will deeply appreciate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Behold Your Mother: Priests Speak about Mary?

Persevering Prayer to Mary  Jul 17, 2007
These 10 essays in which priests share their reflections on Mary have much to say to all of the faithful. Editor Msgr. Steven J. Rossetti, in his chapter on Mary and the Divine Presence, writes that "good" priests and Christians can manage without devotion to the Blessed Mother, "but such a road would be more barren than necessary, more stark than intended by our Savior."

In addition to describing their devotion to and reliance on Mary, these priests spark their stories with messages for all Christians. Fr. Wilford Raymond, a Holy Cross priest, recounting a hospital visit in which he felt helpless, observes that Christ healed by curing, but "the healing that a priest does is closer to the way Mary heals: by silent witness and compassion." Rev. Louis J. Cameli, a Chicago pastor: "Recovery of the practice of the daily rosary has cleared a helpful path for me into the life of Christ seen through the eyes of the one who knew him best and loved him most: his mother." Msgr. Rossetti: Marian spirituality is "an essential part of our Christian spirituality as given to us directly by Jesus."

The introduction and many of the essays refer to church history on devotion to Mary and to the support for such devotion by John Paul II, "Mary's Pope," and his successor Benedict XVI. Rossetti closes the book with a quotation from the Second Vatican Council: "Let the entire body of the faithful pour forth persevering prayer to the Mother of God and Mother of Men." (Lumen Gentium, 69)
