For a weary world deeply in need of peace, faith, and loving guidance, William G. Storey has created a refreshing book of prayers with Jesus and Mary at its heart. Hail Mary offers brief, simply structured morning and evening devotionals for nine feast days and the five liturgical seasons
Each service includes a hymn, psalms, short readings, a canticle, and prayers of intercession. There are devotionals for the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Assumptiontide, Lent, and Easter, and for the feasts of Solemnity of Mary, The Presentation of the Lord, St. Joseph, The Annunciation, The Visitation, The Dormition and Assumption of Mary, The Nativity of Mary, Marys Immaculate Conception, and Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Hail Mary also includes expanded Readings of the Hours for the liturgical seasons. Modeled on the Night Vigil, these prayers are updated for modern use. Ideal for both personal and group use, Hail Mary is a helpful resource for contemporary Marian devotions throughout the year.
William Storey is professor emeritus of liturgy and Church history at the University of Notre Dame. He has compiled, translated, and edited many books of prayer, including A Book of Marian Prayers, A Prayer Book of Catholic Devotions, and Novenas. He currently resides in South Bend, Indiana.
