Praise for Under the Mantle
In Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest, Fr. Calloway masterfully blends together aspects of his own conversion story with profound theological insights into Catholicism, presenting everyone from "Joe six-pack in the pew" to a seminary rector with incredibly vivid and thought-provoking analogies into why it is so important for a Christian to live under the mantle of Mary. I very highly recommend that everyone read this book! - Very Rev. Douglas Mosey, C.S.B., Ph.D. President-Rector, Holy Apostles College & Seminary. Cromwell, CT
One of the biggest challenges facing Catholics today is the risk of becoming jaded, lukewarm, disillusioned, or unenthused about their Catholic faith. Indeed, not being madly in love with Jesus, Mary, and the Church is an increasing threat in the lives of many today. For this reason, this book could not have come at a better time. In this book Fr. Calloway weaves both his personal conversion story and love for Our Lady with wave after wave of fascinating insights into the Catholic faith, offering the reader ample reasons for rediscovering and falling back in love with the saving mysteries of Catholicism. This book is a must read for all! - Derry Connolly, Ph.D. President John Paul the Great Catholic University. San Diego, CA
Raw, unapologetic, and inspiring! A book that is easily understood, yet delving deep, beyond the litany of filters, and challenging spiritually hungry souls to wake up. A truly unique and extraordinary Marian gem for the New Evangelization. You will be thanked when you pass it on. - Milanka Lachman, L.H.S. Founder & President 206 Tours (Catholic Pilgrimages). Hauppauge, NY
