Chapters of Gold: Meditations on the Life of Our Ladyby Rachel Billington, Gered Mankowitz (Photographer)
In Westminster Cathedral, in London, high up on the walls of the Lady Chapel, are a series of beautiful mosaics, depicting scenes from the life of Mary. These are very evocative and created by the artist with reverence and dedication. Twenty-one of these episodes in mosaic, captured by the distinguished photographer Gered Mankowitz, are presented in this book, accompanied by a text by the talented and popular writer and novelist, Rachel Billington. Rachel Billington's meditations are imaginative and compelling - they are written by a woman of today who understands the meaning of Mary for busy people in the turbulent modern world. Chapters of Gold ends with an anthology of prayer and devotions to Mary. The Duchess of Kent has written a foreword and the book carries words from Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Archbishop Rowan Williams, and others, which emphasises the ecumenical importance of Mary for all Christians and other great faiths.
