It includes meditations on the mysteries of the Rosary, sermons on the primary liturgical feasts of Mary and prayers to Mary. It is thorough. Each expositional section concludes with a prayer and example.
If you enjoyed Thomas A Kempis' Imitations of Christ, you will love this book.
There are 7 parts to the unabridged edition I'm reviewing (Liguori Publications; Revised edition October 1, 2000):
1. Line by line commentary on the Salve Regina
2. Prayers to Our Lady (including The Rosary of Our Lady's Sorrows, covered in more depth in Part 4)
3. Sermons on the Principle Feasts of Our Lady
4. The Sorrows of Mary
5. The Virtues of the Blessed Virgin Mary
6. Practices of Devotion in Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary
7. Further Examples
St. Alphonsus follows a four-step formula in covering most of the material: (1) theme, (2) exposition, (3) example, and (4) prayer. He introduces a topic, develops it in depth using the devotional writings and sayings of the Fathers, Doctors, and saints of the Church, and then provides a story or two to illustrate his point, and a specific prayer for Our Lady's grace pertaining to the particular topic.
As mentioned earlier, this is primarily a work of devotion and therefore not the book I'd give a Protestant to explain the Catholic veneration of Mary; just as I would not give "The Imitation of Christ" to an atheist to explain the rational underpinnings of Christianity.Read more ›

The Glories of Mary (Liguori Classic) [Paperback]  (Author) Saint Alphonsus Liguori
Aside from being a Doctor of the Church, Ligouri references many who preceded him, emphasizing the point that we don't have to reinvent the wheel but only rely on those who have gone before us in wisdom. Naysayers of Mary's powerful intercession claim that she was "merely a creature". However, she was merely a creature who was the channel through whom Jesus came to us. She was merely a creature who was assumed into Heaven, and for what reason? These questions and many others are addressed in this beautiful writing. I highly recommend this book. It is well worth whatever time you devote to it.
Mary, the Immaculate One is the most powerful Saint in Heaven who has saved, from eternal damnation, countless individuals who were devoted to her during their life times. You must read this book to discover how our Blessed Lady protected her loved ones. This book is for those who know little about Mary Immaculate and for those who would like to know more about our Immaculate Queen, the greatest Advocate in Heaven and on earth. I hard such a difficult time putting this book down to complete other duties. When I was reading this book, I felt such peace and joy that continues to remain with me.
I underlined so many important events, quotes from Saints, incredible descriptions of how our Blessed Lady saved her children. St. Alphonsus mentions in several locations the importance of praying the holy rosary to become closely attachd to Mary, the Mother of God! More than a great book, a masterpiece!
