Recent Reads: Mysteries of the Virgin Mary

The Catholic Company
I've had "Mysteries of the Virgin Mary: Living Our Lady's Graces" from The Catholic Company sitting in my to-read pile for a while now.  I started it a couple of times but found it so... serious.  It's not written in the kind of conversational tone that I usually prefer in a religious book, so it was a little harder to get into it. Once I did, though, I found it full of detailed, interesting information about Our Lady and the church's special place for her.

Have you ever had that argument discussion with non-Catholic Christian friends about whether or not Catholics "worship" Mary?  This book will arm you to explain the truth.  The very first chapter covers "Seven Reasons for Marian Devotion" and includes Bible quotes that clearly illustrate God's special affection for Mary.  From there, this comprehensive book goes on to explain Marian feast days  mysteries of Mary's life, and anything else you can think of related to Mary and the church. 

This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Mysteries of the Virgin Mary. They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church or a Catholic Bible.

I received my copy of this book free in return for my honest review.  If reviewing Catholic books sounds like something you'd like to do, they are currently accepting new applications-- check it out HERE. You can read my other book reviews here
