This book is short, easily understandable and very profound.
It should be read slowly, respectfully... It will make you reflect on your own life, as well, as he meditates on the events of Mary's life.
I have read a lot about Mary, and thought a lot about her and loved her for more than 15 years. This book has material worthy of being highlighted in every single page. It reveals the close intimacy that the Cardinal had with Our Blessed Mother, and from which he generously shares with us, for our sake.
Had to borrow, a lot, I suspect, from the Spiritual Exercises that Cardinal Martini had to do, as a Jesuit. Indirectly, he encourages us to do our own "exercises", to reflect on the Gospel parts that talk about Mary, and to do so Respectfully, asking her to guide us into that journey, so that we can understand her better, and get to know her better, SO that we can learn from her about how to better follow Jesus.
To me, and in terms of modern writings about Mary, only the writings of John Paul II can be put at the same level of this little precious book.
Large type, pleasant layout throughout. Notes in the back with references. Well worth the $.
Italy. His funeral will be Monday, September 3, 2012 at the Catherdral of Milan Italy. Approximately August 8, 2012, he gave his a final
interview to reporters from Corriere della Sera, an Italian paper. In it he was quoted "[European and American] culture has aged, our
churches are big and empty and the church bureaucracy rises up, our rituals and our cassocks are pompous. ... The Church has remained 200
years behind the times. Why has it not been shaken up? Are we scared? Fear instead of courage?". He will be buried in his spiritual home,
Jerusalem, Israel. He was a brave and courageous spiritual leader and his writings will have a very long impact on our lives.
