  • This profound and moving book shows us Mary, the Mother of Jesus, through word, story, and tradition, as a model and inspiration for our time and for all time.

     

    In the extraordinarily personal style we have come to expect from Megan McKenna, we see Mary as never before, through the scriptures, and through meditations on her life and meaning for Christians today. McKennas reflections begin with the story of Our Lady of Guadelupe and end with the watch at Calvary.
