A wonderful small gift book for anyone who enjoys the profoundly insightful thoughts and words of Pope Benedict XVI. This selection of 100 distinct Marian thoughts by Pope Benedict XVI is drawn from a variety of sources, including homilies, addresses, and the encyclical Deus Caritas Est (God Is Love). The Holy Father's reflections cover the significant moments in the life of Our Lady: the Annunciation, the Visitation, her Magnificat, the birth of Jesus, the death of Jesus on the Cross, Pentecost, and the Assumption. The Pope reflects also on Mary as a disciple of Jesus and on Marian devotion. This beautifully expressive volume concludes with several prayers to the Blessed Mother of Jesus and our Mother.
