Following Mary to Jesus: Our Lady as Mother, Teacher, and Advocate
Expands our understanding on the three ways Mary leads us to Jesus
Helps Catholics gain a deeper appreciation of Mary’s presence in their lives
In his trademark warm and friendly style, popular speaker and author Fr. Andrew Apostoli shows us the important roles that Mary plays in the lives of Christian disciples. Fr. Apostoli focuses on three specific ways Mary leads us to Jesus--as mother, teacher, and advocate:• In her motherly role, she gave life to Jesus and gives life to us, her spiritual children.
• In her teaching role, she shows us how to trust in God’s providential working in our own lives, just as she trusted in God when she completely abandoned herself to his will in her own life.
• In her role as advocate, she has compassion on all her children as she intercedes for us.
Apostoli uses numerous anecdotes and stories to engage his readers as he helps Catholics gain a deeper appreciation of Mary’s active and loving presence in their lives.
