Untie the Strong Woman: Blessed Mother's Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul
Blessed Mother''s Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul
"Have You Forgotten? I Am Your Mother. You Are Under My Protection."
"There is a promise Holy Mother makes to us," proclaims Dr. Clarissa Pinkola EstÚs, "that any soul needing comfort, vision, guidance, or strength can cry out to her, flee to her protection, and Blessed Mother will immediately arrive with veils flying. She will place us under her mantle for refuge, and give us the warmth of her most compassionate touch, and strong guidance about how to go by the soul''s lights." Untie the Strong Woman is Dr. EstÚs invitation to come together under the shelter of The Mother--whether she appears to us as the Madonna, Our Lady of Guadalupe, or any one of her countless incarnations. In this unforgettable collection of stories, prayers, and blessings, Dr. EstÚs shares:
Why does the face of Our Lady appear in the most humble and unexpected places? Why does she burst forth into every culture no matter how hard authority tries to suppress her? It is because no bonds can restrain the power of her love, nor prevent her from returning to those who need her most. With Untie the Strong Woman, Dr. EstÚs invites you to encounter the force of Immaculate Love--"So that your memory of Her is renewed, or that the knowledge of her miraculous, fierce, enduring ways is drawn into your heart for the very first time."
