The world's great writings about Mary--her faith, strength and love--
can become a companion for your own spiritual journey

Mary, the mother of Jesus, has been revered for centuries by people from all over the world. She is a paragon of humility, righteousness and dedication, and her life as mother and prophet can serve as an example to us all.

In over two hundred selections, Spiritual Writings on Mary examines the essential aspects of Mary's role in history and in life today. Selections from influential writers, thinkers and theologians--both ancient and modern, from a wide range of Western and Eastern backgrounds--explore what life may have been like for Mary, Joseph and Jesus, and celebrate the many ways in which Mary serves as a model of holiness for all women and men; as the archetype of motherhood; and as a source of tenderness, comfort, protection and peace.
