A Year with Mary

Paul Thigpen

Books about the Blessed Virgin abound, yet the words of St Bernard of Clairvaux still ring true: “Of Mary, there is never enough!”.  She is a mystery that faithful Christians seek to understand more fully, an ocean “full of Grace” still awaiting deeper exploration.

In A Year with Mary: Daily Meditations on the Mother of God, best-selling author Paul Thigpen sets sail on that ocean, using as his map the profound insights of saints and other spiritual writers.  These 365 reflections, drawn from their writings reveal Mary’s role in God’s plan, the virtues she so perfectly models and the rich benefits of Marian devotion.
