Publisher's Summary

Deepen your devotion to the Blessed Mother with this unique look at Mary’s relationship with her son throughout Jesus’ life - and beyond. Fr. McBride invites us to know Mary not only as the young mother of a newborn but also as the nurturer and caretaker of her son through his adolescence and into his adult ministry. We see Mary in grief at Christ’s death, and we meet her as the mother of the infant Church at Pentecost.

These 42 reflections - each presented with a Scripture passage, inspirational quote, meditation and reflection question - help us understand the whole picture of Mary as a mother: of Jesus, of Christianity, and of each of us!

Holding Jesus

Very nice voice, clear pronunciation. Pacing is just right and conducive for prayer. The portrayal of Mary and the message brings you much closer to her Son, Jesus!

Beautiful Reflections!

Such a peaceful and poignant presentation on Mother Mary's life, personality, and mission. I was especially touched by the author's reflection on Mary walking the road to Calvary with Jesus.
