Who do you say Mary is?
She’s a simple peasant they call Queen of Heaven. She’s the Lord’s humble servant, yet an icon of female strength. She’s mother of all, yet ever-virgin, lowly and exalted. Sinners fly to her but angels bow. Mary, mother of Jesus, is the most recog-nized woman in history . . . and the most misunderstood.
Non-Christians paint her as an earth goddess. Skeptics say she’s a fictional projection of male psychological needs. Many Protestants grudgingly acknowledge that someone had to bear the Savior, but otherwise regard Mary as an ordinary, sinful woman — in whom Christians have tragically misplaced the faith and devotion due only to her Son.
Even many Catholics don’t know Mary as well as they should. Do you know the Church’s five essential Marian doctrines, and how they’re rooted in Scripture and Sacred Tradition? Can you explain the difference between the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth? Or share the messages and secrets of Mary’s most famous apparitions?
Meet Mary, from Marian expert Mark Miravalle, tells you all that and more. You’ll learn everything the Bible says about her, what the early Christians believed, and all of the Church’s key Marian teachings these past 2,000 years.
Soon, you’ll turn to Mary with your cares and joys; in sorrows you’ll experience her gentle embrace. You’ll also become a better disciple of Jesus, for the Son commands us to imitate him in all things — including perfect love of his mother.
“It’s time for you to know more about the Mother of Our Lord, and this book will do precisely that for you.”
