Item description for Lent and Easter With Mary by Thomas J. Craughwell...

Overview
Mary inspires love and confidence to a degree that surpasses all other saints. We identify with her because she was as human as we are; she was a daughter and wife and mother; she knew heart-piercing sorrows and great joys. We feel close to her, but we also know that Mary is very close to God. Mary is the perfect companion during the holy seasons of Lent and Easter. Following a day-by-day format, this treasure of a book leads us into an in-depth encounter with the Blessed Mother whose influence has been felt in every facet of human life for 2000 years. Lent and Easter with Mary spotlights Marian-related events in religious life, and in art, music, film, history, and literature. It tells stories of the origins of Marian prayers and hymns, recalls great miracles and apparitions, and celebrates the lives of saints who were especially devoted to Mary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lent and Easter With Mary?

Historical devotional  Jan 27, 2008
Thomas Craughwell, author of the best-selling "Saints Behaving Badly," has written a fact-filled set of Marian-themed reflections for the liturgical seasons of Lent and Easter. You might call his book an "historical devotional," since each entry typically contains little-known information about the history surrounding various Marian feast days and celebrations. Examples include the story behind the first postage stamp with the image of Our Lady, a description of sacred music composer Palestrina's devotion to Mary, the survival of a Marian statue when Paris was ransacked by violent Protestant iconoclasts, the conversion from Lutheranism of the University of Notre Dame's Knute Rockne, and the dedication of Maryland's "St. Mary's," the first seminary in the U.S. Want to gain a deeper appreciation for Mary's role in the 2,000-year history of the Church (while preparing yourself for the summit of the Church's liturgical calendar)? This is your book. Highly recommended.
