"A lifetime of deeply knowing and loving Mary, the Mother of God, has left a deep imprint on Pope Francis. In these beautiful meditations, homilies, talks and tweets, he speaks of her not as an idea but an intimate experience, whose strength transforms not just individuals but whole cultures. Mary models for Francis the missionary, merciful attitude every Christian is called to develop, of patient listening to the will of God, and courageous confidence in His designs." —Austen Ivereigh, senior contributor, Crux, and author, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope

In a conglomeration of reflections, homilies, tweets, and public addresses, Pope Francis displays his signature spiritual authenticity and emotional transparency of the heart language. Trust to his vocation of encountering all people with God's mercy, his musings on the Blessed Virgin Mary gather deep and sincere love for Our Lady with a familiarity and fondness that is certain to attract both Marian devotees and skeptics alike.
An example of his honest and endearing approach to our spiritual mother is illustrated in his August 15, 2015 tweet on the Feast of the Assumption:
Mary's life shows that God accomplishes great deeds through those who are the most humble.
Simple to read and organized loosely by theme, Mother Mary: Inspiring Words from Pope Francis is a perfect companion to those who practice daily prayer or attend weekday Mass. It's also ideal for additional spiritual reading during the Marian months of May and October for personal enrichment. Purchase one for you or as a gift for someone's birthday, Confirmation, or reception into the Church.

Pope Francis’ words always provide much food for thought and this collection is no exception. While it can be read cover to cover, the quotes are probably best taken in small doses, perhaps even a page a day so that they can be reflected and meditated upon.
Our Pope has a deep devotion to our Blessed Mother and frequently offers her as the perfect model of the Christian life. We have so much we can learn from his words and her example brought together in this collection.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
My only criticism is that there were a few passages that seemed like they were included just because they mentioned Mary but weren’t actually about her. These were such a small number compared to the rest of the passages, though.
I would enthusiastically recommend this to anyone who wants to grow closer to the Blessed Mother or just simply learn more about her.
