Product Description

The story of Mary's relationship with Jesus goes beyond her nurturing him as a child. She was there when his ministry began at Cana. She stood at the foot of the cross during his passion and death. She was a witness to his resurrection and ascension. A perfect resource for Advent and Lent, each of these forty-two reflections offers Scripture to ponder, an inspirational quote, a brief meditation, a question for reflection, and a prayer.

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 stages 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.
