Behold Your Mother: Priests Speak about Mary
Stephen J. Rossetti
Ave Maria Press, 2007 - Religion - 157 pages
Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, the best-selling author of the influential Joy of Priesthood, has assembled fascinating reflections from nine esteemed fellow priests who share how their devotion to the Blessed Mother has supported their life and ministry. Though overlooked in recent times, devotion to the Blessed Mother has long been a foundational part of priestly spirituality. Behold Your Mother seeks to renew this practice for both younger clergy and those with years of priestly life. From stories of childhood devotion to the Blessed Mother to personal encounters with some of the great spiritual figures from recent times, these essays have both a personal and practical character that priests--and the laity as well--will deeply appreciate.
