Overview

In faith we love to think of Mary as our Blessed Mother. We see Mary depicted again and again holding the infant Jesus in her arms. In 42 scriptural reflections, Fr. Alfred McBride invites us to consider Mary as a young wife and new mother who holds her infant, as the Mother of Sorrows who holds her son when he is taken down from the cross, and as a witness to the infant Church when the Holy Spirit descends in the Upper Room at Pentecost.
