This is a book for those whose devotion to Mary has been strong and consistent over a lifetime. But it is also a book for those rediscovering Mary, rediscovering the value of devotion to her. Welcome to this small book of meditations and prayers on Mary, the mother of Jesus and our mother, too. As you will see, it has four sections--Mary in Scripture, Mary in the Liturgy, Marian apparitions, and a fourth section which includes devotional prayers to Mary both ancient and modern. The author would like to think that this is a book Mary herself would appreciate. --From the Introduction ""I am so happy that Mitch Finley has turned his considerable talent to this subject. Mother Mary is an integral part of our tradition. She is 'our life, our sweetness and our hope.' Finley brings out the fact that she is constantly caring for us. Thanks for a fine book, Mitch. I have enjoyed all your works."" John Powell, SJ ""If the book says Mitch Finley on its spine, you're in for a good, happy, invigorating experience."" Richard Dowd, Columbia University ""Here's an opportunity to bring Mary down from the altar and to allow her to enter--and inspire--human lives.""
