By Peter John Cameron, O.P.
The merits of any preaching upon the Virgin Mary rise and fall, in the words of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, on its ability to present “her real life, not her imagined life…bringing out her virtues, saying that she lived by faith just like ourselves.” In Mysteries of the Virgin Mary, notable Dominican preacher Peter John Cameron, O.P., presents the “real life” of Blessed Mary as it is commemorated in the Marian liturgical feasts of the Church year. Anchoring his addresses in Scripture and tradition, with manifold voices of saints and mystics all in harmony, Fr. Cameron shows how the Blessed Mother brings each and every disciple of Christ closer to Him as they live her mystery.
Seeing that we are unworthy to receive God’s graces immediately from His hand, God gives them to Mary, in order that through her we may receive all that He wishes to give us. (St. Bernard of Clairvaux)
Starting with seven compelling reasons for Marian devotion, Mysteries of the Virgin Mary then treats the major feasts of Mary’s life and those celebrating her unique character to provide a profound and eminently practical guide to meditating on the Blessed Mother and drawing near to her grace-filled presence. Good spiritual reading for anyone and everyone, Mysteries of the Virgin Mary: Living Our Lady’s Graces is especially beneficial for priests and deacons, the designated preachers of Holy Mother Church.
