The Mystical Rose: Thoughts on the Blessed Virgin from the Writings of John Henry Cardinal Newman
From the pen of the most renowned Catholic thinker of the nineteenth century comes this explanation of the Church's devotion to Mary. Newman examines the New Testament and the writings of the Church Fathers to show that this devotion is on a firm apostolic foundation. Then he explains the doctrinal bases of the titles given to Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto: Mystical Rose, House of Gold, Mirror of Justice, Queen of Angels, Tower of Ivory, Singular Vessel of Devotion, Queen of Martyrs, and more. Newman's deep insights into Our Lady will deepen your love for the Mother of God.
