    A Great Marian Devotional and Resource for Everyone

    I read this book in about a week -- a month or two each evening after it arrived -- and I can tell you, with complete confidence, that it's completely worth what you'll spend for it. Whether you use it as it's intended, as a daily devotional, or you read it as it suits you, you'll find that you glimpse Mary in unexpected ways. The combination of off-the-beaten-track quotes and Edmisten's accompanying meditation makes for a read that sticks with you in the very best way.

    More than once, I found myself texting quotes to friends who needed them and I also found myself moved by the divine touch I felt on my soul as I read through this book. Edmisten found quotes that speak to everyone where they are and that make Mary a close confidante and a comrade-in-arms. Rather than shock her reader with the glory of Mary, she presents the beauty of the down-to-earth, the fact of the living, breathing woman, and the feel of arms embracing you as you read.

    I've long admired Edmisten's writing for its humor and wit, but with this book, she stretches her reader by planting the seeds of devotion to Mary. Rather than extol Mary's virtues and make an impossibly long list of what we should all do, she expertly weaves others' words together with a touch of her own insight.

    The final product, you'll find, is a beautiful compilation and a lovely read, whether you savor it through the year or devour it all at once and come back to it again and again.

    Looking at Mary in a New Way

    Karen Edmisten describes herself as a former atheist, Catholic, Eucharist-devoted, Confession-going, homeschooling, writing wife and mother She is the author of The Rosary: Keeping Company with Jesus and Mary, and contributes to a number of Catholic publications. Through the Year with Mary is based on the author's belief that a fresh turn of phrase can sharpen our vision so that we look at Mary in a new way. For each dated entry she presents quotes "from those much wiser than I" and adds her own brief reflection. The numerous and varied sources of quotes are listed in chapter notes at the end of the book. The average page contains three or four entries. Staples for each month are highlighted Marian feasts and a unique grouping of titles of the Blessed Virgin (more than 80 in all). Using page 83 as an example, we find for Sept. 14 a quotation from St. Louis de Montfort relating perfection (being conformed, united, and consecrated to Jesus) to perfect devotion, to devotion to Mary. The more a soul is consecrated to Mary, de Montfort writes, the more it is consecrated to Jesus. The entry for Sept. 15 honors the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, with a quote from St. Lawrence Justinian. Edmisten's reflection reads "Immaculate but wounded heart-Mary, you bore so much for me." The final entry on the page, for Sept. 16, is a list of titles related to Mary's queenship.
