Overview

In an age when women are bombarded with mothering advice, award-winning Catholic journalist Marge Fenelon delves into eight instances of Mary's life that depict Mary as the ultimate model and companion for the modern mom. In this first and only book to offer Mary's life as a template for living as a faithful Catholic mother today, readers will discover that it's possible to imitate Mary with the help of eight simple virtues gleaned from eight instances in Mary's life. A new book in the CatholicMom.com series," Imitating Mary" unpacks Scripture and Catholic tradition to examine biblical climaxes like Mary's betrothal to Joseph, the Annunciation, the scene at the foot of the Cross, and Pentecost. In doing so, Fenelon introduces readers to a Mary who faced challenges familiar to every mother—impatience, frustration, sacrifice, and grief—and demonstrates how, in the face of these ordinary obstacles, her reponse was an extraordinary example through the virtues of patience, joy, trust, and faith. "Imitating Mary" offers substance and encouragement, giving practical tips and ideas for thriving in the trenches of motherhood.
