In this book Fritz Arnold looks not so much at Mary but along with her, in the same direction. He starts by tracing, from the biblical texts, the important stages of Mary's life from the Annunciation and birth of Jesus, through His public ministry, to the cross and resurrection. He suggests that each Christian is called to become receptive to God as Mary was, in silence and prayer, and to learn from her how to bring Christ to other people and allow their relationship with Christ to bear fruit in everyday life. Examples from history show that, in order to grow both internally and externally, the church had to go through painful processes of transformation and suffering. ""A deeply spiritual read, to be read slowly with time for reflection on the themes introduced... I can recommend this book to anyone struggling with their own images of Mary and her place in the Church.""-Network.
