Format: Paperback
Mary, Ever Virgin, Full of Grace, captured my interest while writing a book chapter on St. Albert the Great's writings on Mary, the Mother of God. Cheryl Dickow provides in a very accessible form what several modern popes, from Leo XIII to John Paul II, have had to say about what they had learned about Mary, and how each of us today, and the world as a whole, could profit from such learning and devotion. The author provides the full text of over a dozen encyclicals, papal letters, providing inset boxes with additional pithy insights from great saints, and thoughtful study questions at the end of each encyclical, so that readers, alone or in a group, can dig deeper for spiritual insights. The encyclicals provide interesting background on the particular periods of history during which they were written, from the 1890's when Pope Leo XIII wrote several Marian encyclicals, to 1987 when Pope John Paul II wrote his masterful Redemptoris Mater. I found intriguing also the centuries of prior Church history revealed within these letters, from Pope Leo XIII's insights on the importance of icons of Mary and her veneration in the Eastern Churches, to Pope Pius XII's cataloge of the great saints of the East and West throughout the centuries (including St. Albert the Great) and their writings bearing on Marian doctrines including the immaculate conception and the assumption. I would also recommend this book to current or would-be devotees of the rosary. They will find much inspiration and education within this book's pages.
