A Heart Like Mary's is the perfect book for all Catholics wishing to begin or deepen their devotion to Mary. Author and Marian theologian Rev. Edward Looney guides us through thirty-one daily meditations on the unique characteristics of Mary's heart. This easy-to-read and engaging monthly devotional is full of practical lessons that address the personal challenges we all face as Mary's fellow pilgrims walking the path of faith.
In the midst of feeling lost in his prayer life and relationship with God, Fr. Looney found himself reflecting on who Mary is and how he could be more like her. He learned that by daily meditating on Mary's attributes and praying for the grace to have a heart like hers he could turn his pessimistic and critical thoughts into optimistic and charitable ones.
A Heart Like Mary's offers readers a simple yet reflective introduction to Marian spirituality by way of a month-long daily devotional. Readers come away with a clear sense of who Mary was, how she cares for and looks after the faithful, and how we can honor her in our daily lives.
Based heavily on scripture, Church teaching, and Looney's personal experience, A Heart Like Mary's gently teaches us how to imitate Mary's love for others and devotion to God. Each day's meditation offers simple yet reflective insight into a unique characteristic of Mary's heart.
