Publisher's Description

In faith we love to think of Mary as our Blessed Mother. We see Mary depicted again and again holding the infant Jesus in her arms. The most popular image of Mary in paintings, icons, stained glass, and statuary is her role as the Madonna, the mother of the Word made flesh. The imagination and genius of artists supply us with images of the maternal wonder, innocence, and affection that our faith discerns in this holy Mother of God. But the story of Mary’s relationship with Jesus goes beyond her nurturing him as a child. She also accompanies him throughout his life from childhood to the teen years, from young adult to his maturity, from his thirtieth year to his passion and death, and from his resurrection to his ascension. Throughout his life, Mary continues to hold her son in her love and in her outstanding prayer and contemplation. In 42 scriptural reflections, Fr. Alfred McBride invites us to consider Mary as a young wife and new mother who holds her infant, as the Mother of Sorrows who holds her son when he is taken down from the cross, and as a witness to the infant Church when the Holy Spirit descends in the Upper Room at Pentecost.

Editorial Reviews

 Depending upon what you desire in a spiritual read you could discover it in this book. If you want something brief and quick this will meet your need. If you desire something more in depth just give yourself to the readings and reflections to see where they lead. If you are looking for something on Mary that is not too theologically dense you can find it here. If you want to have a picture of Mary that is real and human this word portrait will enrich your imagination. If you want to plumb all the different connections a reflection on Mary can point toward you’ll find multiple paths here. If you want a resource on Mary with unusual slants for all seasons then this will shine new light for you. For all of the above reasons, as well as for personal enrichment, this book is worth the time you spend with it…Father Alfred has reflected upon every aspect of life. The reader will know Mary differently, pondering and walking with her as she invites the reader to hole her son, Jesus, throughout his life. In knowing Mary differently, we can know ourselves anew, gaining self-knowledge as we pray with Holding Mary: Reflections on Mary the Mother of God.—Diane Jamison, O.S.F., The Cord
