Pray for us O Holy mother of God
Fr. Pacwa brings his devotion to the Blessed Mother alive for every Catholic in the next in his series of wildly popular Bible studies. Mary - Virgin, Mother, and Queen: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics looks at Old and New Testament texts that are relevant to the Marian doctrine, including:
- God's promise in Genesis that a woman's offspring would strike the head of the serpent
- The Old Testament Ark of the Covenant as a symbol of Mary
- Mary's fiat
- The wedding at Cana
- Mary at the cross
- The woman and the dragon in Revelation
- And more
Mary - Virgin, Mother, and Queen is perfect for use as a parish Bible study, or for individual learning. Each chapter includes background and study exercises, and questions for reflection and discussion.
Fr. Mitch enlightens, clarifies, and challenges Catholics to a renewed devotion to the Blessed Mother, through whom we are drawn nearer to Christ.
