Spiritual meditation is the surest way to grow in holiness, and Our Lady is truly an example of perfection. This combination makes Meditations on Mary a spiritual powerhouse that will lift your soul to God and help you along the path to heaven.

Meditations on Mary features twenty-four of the most powerful and moving meditations written by 17th Century Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet -considered to be one of the best homilists in the history of the Church. Author of Meditations for Lent and Meditations for Advent, Bishop Bossuet has been admired for his piety and eloquence for over three hundred years. Now his meditations on Our Lady are available to you in English - for the very first time!

Although we know Our Lady serves as a perfect example of how a Christian should live and bear witness to Our Lord, Scripture contains only a few glimpses of her life, leaving our knowledge limited and our imagination wanting.

In these pages, Bishop Bossuet takes you on a stunning pilgrimage through the principal mysteries of Our Lady's life. He masterfully blends what he's learned from Sacred Scripture with the spiritual traditions rooted in the heart of the Church, and illuminates it with his own theological reflections. He'll bring you to a deeper understanding of Our Lady's compassion, her suffering during Christ's Passion, and the loneliness she felt after his Ascension to heaven. Bishop Bossuet will show you how Jesus brings honor to himself by honoring his mother, and how Our Lady is extraordinary solely because of her alliance with Jesus.

Mary teaches us how to let God direct our steps, how to remain humble in commanding and obeying, and how to seek holiness through our daily work. She shows us how to pray with humility and perseverance, to advance in perfection, and, by doing all these things, to conform ourselves to the holy will of God. Each short meditation is worthy of your contemplation, because each contains a lesson directly from the Blessed Mother for sinners like you and me.

    Meditations on Mary Book

    Lovely sweet book on the meditations on Mary. Daughter is devoted to Mary and wanted a book that she could read many times over.
    This was a Christmas gift that made it the day after, she loved it anyway! Just make sure you remember to order well before Christmas if its a gift because we ordered on the 17th of Dec and the order did not arrive until the day after. Considering over 9-10 days would be enough time. Lesson learned : ) We love The Catholic Company for great Catholic items and gifts!

    Meditations on Mary Review

    The book is excellent in that it ties together Mary's role not only in Jesus' birth, but also in the New Covenant as well as meditations regarding the faith and obedience of Mary and what it means to us. Each meditation really makes you think!

    It's not just something you read, it's something you feel

    I still haven't finished reading this book, however, reading what I have so far and reading some of Jacques-Benigne Bossuet's other works, I love this already. His way with words is so addicting I wish I knew French so I could read his works that haven't been translated yet. If you want a book on Mary, I would definitely recommend this one, but in general would recommend anything written by him.
