This booklet is designed to reflect more deeply on Mary, Mother of God, during the days leading up to and around any of her feast days. Drawing from Scripture, Church teaching and recent papal teaching, The author offers valuable catechesis on Mary and her place in the life of the Christian’s daily life.
These Novena reflections (rather than prayers) help us to enrich our contemplation and prayer, and are just as valuable at any other time. The Novena is centred around the themes of faith, simplicity, serenity, missionary spirit, practical humility, distractions, charity, confession and family life.
