Product Description

The life of The Blessed Virgin Mary is perfectly and intimately identified with that of her Son. The events of her life are therefore truly mysteries signs that point us to the saving grace of Jesus.

In The Mysteries of Mary Fr. Philippe shines a light on those events, constructing a rich theological meditation on how Mary's life is model of faith and hope, and most importantly, of the growth in charity to which all Christians are called.

The early mysteries of Mary's life show us the preparation for charity and its budding, as Mary's soul and flesh are prepared to receive Jesus, culminating in the climactic mystery of the Nativity of the Lord. Through trial, charity begins to be rooted in Mary's heart until finally that heart in pierced in the mysteries of sorrow. At last, the charity of the resurrected Lord blossoms in glory: having endured with her Son the agonies of Calvary, Mary most immediately and fully experiences His return to life indeed, "from the first beat of His glorious heart."

The Mysteries of Mary is at once an episode reflection on the profoundest moments in Mary's earthly life, from the Immaculate Conception to Cana to Pentecost, and a systematic approach to the doctrine of Mary's spiritual motherhood of all the faithful. It means that she "educates us as a mother, showing us through her example, her life, how we must live the mysteries of faith, hope, and the growth of charity."
