The way of Mary is to follow in her footsteps. Christians of all denominations are rediscovering the significance of the mother of Jesus, as films such as The Nativity Story and The Passion of the Christ portray her life in new and startling ways. Written for a popular audience, Mary Ford-Grabowsky's new book shares the wisdom of a lifetime of devotion to Mary. These new devotions, all of them inspired by the scenes and stories of the Gospels, comment on Mary's extraordinary life on earth and momentous influence on the human heart, male or female, ever since. Arranged in a two-week cycle, each of these devotions includes meditation, reflection, prayer, visualization, and ideas for freeing the creative spirit.
