meditations on Mary are filled with wisdom and hope. On ordinary
days, on Marian holy days, and in times of spiritual and moral
challenges, they offer the strength and the consolation that come
from a relationship with the Mother of Jesus.
Mary Francis, P.C.C., a contemplative Poor Clare nun and an acclaimed
spiritual writer, wrote with an intimate familiarity of the Mother of
God. To her Mary was real, lovable, and accessible, and her words
help the reader to discover that walking with Our Lady day by day is
the cause of our unending joy.
book includes reflections for the feasts and solemnities of Mary
throughout the year. It incorporates the most cherished Marian
prayers of the Church, such as the Rosary, the Litany of Loreto, and
the Magnificat. Also included are some of the author's poems and a
moving tribute to her life and Marian devotion in the form of a
foreword written by her Poor Clare spiritual daughters.
