Overview

The Mysteries of Mary shows how the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary is perfectly and intimately identified with that of her Son. It is both a reflection on the most profound moments in Mary s earthly life, from the Immaculate Conception to Cana to Pentecost, and a systematic approach to the doctrine of Mary s spiritual maternity. Mary is the mother of all the faithful because she educates us as a mother, showing us through her example, her life, how we must live the mysteries of faith, hope, and the growth of charity.

The early mysteries of Mary s life show us unswerving faith as Mary s soul and flesh are prepared to receive Jesus in the Nativity of the Lord. Through trial, charity is rooted and grows in Mary s heart, until finally that heart is pierced in the mysteries of sorrow. At last, the hope for the resurrected Lord blossoms in glory. Having endured with her Son the agonies of Calvary, Mary most immediately and fully experiences His return to life indeed, from the first beat of His glorious heart. The mysteries of Mary s life are signs that truly point us to the saving grace of Jesus. Highly recommended to anyone who wishes to imitate Mary through growth in the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity.
