CBB Review – Keeping Mary Close

The faithful of the Church have held a special place of honor for Mary for centuries. This began in the very early years of the Church and continues today. In their new book Keeping Mary Close: Devotion to Our Lady through the Ages, co-authors Mike Aquilina and Father Frederick Gruber take a close look at how devotion to Mary developed.

He takes a fresh look at Lenten practices and provides readers with 40 activities they can partake in to cultivate spiritual growth. It’s a book that is well –suited for Lent but quite frankly can be used anytime of the year when you need a … [Read more...]
