Overview

Through beautiful prose and inspiring meditations, Caryll Houselander depicts the intimately human side of Mary, Mother of God, as an empty reed waiting for God's music to be played through her. Lovingly bringing Our Lady down off her time-honored, ancient pedestal, Houselander shares her insightful and beautiful vision of Mary on earth, Mary among us, Mary as a confused but trusting teenager whose holiness flowered with her eternal "Yes." With profound theological teachings and appealing imagery, The Reed of God is a spiritual classic written in the mystical tradition of Julian of Norwich.

Caryll Houselander reflects on Mary of Nazareth with profound insight into the reality of her simple life transformed by grace. Deeply Scriptural and also concretely human, her work is a gem of both the poetic and the practical for anyone seeking to be open to God and closer to Christ.
