- Deepen your relationship with Mary
- Designed small to be carried with you
In the school of Mary, says St. John Paul II, we are "led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love." Mary--refuge of sinners, help of the sick, cause of our joy--is the model for all believers.
The Manual for Marian Devotion will deepen your relationship with Mary and, in doing so, draw you closer to her Son.
Part One, “Preparing for Marian Devotion,” answers the following questions:
• What is Mary's place in God's plan? Why is she so important?
• What has the Church taught about Mary?
• How has Marian devotion changed history?
• How should I cultivate devotion to Mary?
Part Two, “Aids for Marian Devotion,” provides these essential resources:
• Inspiration for Marian devotion from the Scriptures and the saints
• Excerpts from Church documents addressing Mary's role
• Accounts of Marian miracles and messages through the ages
• Marian prayers and hymns from the Church's rich liturgical and devotional patrimony
• Marian poetry
The Manual for Marian Devotion is designed to be small enough to travel with you everywhere: use it to nourish your love of Mary with the Scriptures and stories of the saints, and turn to its prayers throughout the day.
The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, is a Dominican Community of Women Religious based in Ann Arbor, Michigan and founded in 1997 to spread the witness of Religious Life in accord with Pope St. John Paul II's vision for the New Evangelization. Through the Sisters’ profession of the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, along with a contemplative emphasis on Eucharistic adoration and Marian devotion, the Community exists for the salvation of souls and the building up of the Church throughout the world. As Dominicans, the Sisters' primary apostolate, the education and formation of young people from pre-kindergarten through college, also reaches out to the modern culture with a variety of new forms of evangelization including the employment of a wide variety of media activities. The Community’s average age is 30 years old, and it has grown from its original four Foundresses to over 130 Sisters in its 20 year existence.
