What does Mary mean to you?
Aside from Jesus Christ, more has been written about Mary than any other Christian figure. And yet much confusion about her role persists.
One of Catholicism’s leading retreat leaders and presenters, Father Dan Crosby, O. F. M. Cap., delivers lively lectures that offer you a perspective on Mary that is inspiring and informative, fresh and faithful.
Nearly eight years in the making, Mary: Mirror of God Who Sees, Hears, Cares, and Comes is neither “pious chatter” nor “frilly theology. ” It is born, rather, of Fr. Crosby’s serious questions about Mary’s rightful place in Christian faith, his constant grappling with the “So what?” of effective preaching, and his insights into the importance that God desires Mary to have in our lives.
You’ve likely heard a number of the many epithets bestowed upon Saint Mary: Mother of Jesus, Blessed Virgin, Queen of Heaven. But the title of this series illuminates the view of Mary that Fr. Crosby asks you to adopt: Mary, Mirror of God.
For Fr. Crosby, Mary is the perfect reflector of God. When you look at her, you behold her beauty and goodness, but even more, you behold the beauty and goodness of God that shines so powerfully through her.
