Marian Veneration: Firm Foundations by Cardinal Francis Arinze

The most Blessed Virgin Mary is venerated by many followers of Jesus Christ as an important part of their practice of the faith. Believing that she is the Mother of God because her Son, Jesus Christ, is the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity who for our salvation took on human nature, Christians of both East and West honor Mary in names of persons, places, associations, religious congregations, and shrines that attract pilgrims. They strive to imitate her as a great model of how to follow Christ.

Cardinal Arinze wrote this book for both those devoted to the Blessed Mother and those who do not yet know or understand her. Based on the Scriptures, the teachings of the Church, and the sacred liturgy, the cardinal provides a solid foundation for Marian veneration—one that can benefit all Christians, regardless of their church affiliation.
