GIVEAWAY: The Little Book of the Blessed Virgin Mary-2 Copies

mary

It’s the month of Mary, so I am going to give away two copies of the book I am reading right now. It is called The Little Book of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Raoul Plus, S.J. I am really enjoying the book and want to share it with you. Here is a description of the book from the publisher, Sophia Institute Press:

“Watching Jesus grow daily in wisdom and grace, the Blessed Virgin Mary pondered in her heart the secrets of her divine Son.

Because Our Lady watched Christ grow each and every day, she created the most valuable manual of Christian perfection that can be had: her own heart.

When from the Cross Jesus said, “Behold your mother,” He invited us to read that manual — the book of the heart of Mary — wherein are found the secrets of the King.

Unfortunately, few of Mary’s words have come down to us, so we must read her heart as she read the heart of Jesus. We must ponder not only her words, but also the events of her life — her attitudes, her actions, and even her silence.

By imitating Our Lady, our lives — like hers — may also come to be full of grace.

In The Little Book of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Fr. Raoul Plus helps us do just that, opening for us the book of the heart of Mary in the simplest yet most vivid ways.

In pages filled with great devotion and penetrating wisdom, he moves us past modern misunderstandings and clichés about Mary into an encounter with the woman who was so remarkable that God Himself made her His spouse!

The Little Book of the Blessed Virgin Mary will awaken in you the thoughts and emotions that lead to deeper union with Mary and with her beloved son, Jesus.”
