Publisher's Summary

Pope Francis celebrates women in the Church and the world, seen through the lens of Mary, the mother of Jesus, in this enlightening new work. 

“Mary was not omnipotent, she was a normal woman: full of grace, but normal. The power is that grace of the Holy Spirit. Mary is full of the Holy Spirit, who accompanies her for her entire life.” (Pope Francis) 

In Ave Maria, Pope Francis explores and unpacks line by line the meaning of the Ave Maria prayer, while celebrating women and all they do as leaders, friends, sisters, and mothers. Teaming up again with theologian Marco Pozza, Francis illuminates Mary’s simple and complex nature and how her example challenges all of us to lead lives of faith, hope, and perseverance. In the end, she is an icon not just for the religious but for all who look to grow more deeply in their purpose in life.

It's Stunning

This book is a beautiful prayer. His Adoration practice for Our Mother is just beyond earth and man and you understand Jesus' devotional practice to His Mother so much more. It brings more sacredness to the heart and practice. He speaks to all of you in a way that initiates a deeper integration of the heart. You will not regret it and you will definitely want to listen to it on repeat. Almost like a personal mass with the Pope. Also, their voices are so soothing, it calms the doggos too!
