Lovers of icons, particularly Marian icons, will delight in the splendid images presented in this lovely prayer book. For those seeking a more comforting and meaningful way to pray to Mary, or a means to honor her in a special way, Mary, Mother of My Lord is a gift. Beautiful full-color art and type combine to make this work a blessed keepsake for all who offer devotions through Mary.
The mother-and-child image goes back to pre-historic times. Perhaps that is why both believers and non-believers respond to it. In this beautiful collection of paintings, Ottawa artist Christine Granger brings the joyful reaffirmation of the mystery of the incarnation to modern times.
Traditional and contemporary Marian texts accompany twenty-eight original Marian icons. Traditional prayers include: Act of Consecration; Hail Mary; Angelus; Magnificat; Hail, Holy Queen; Memorare; Regina Caeli; Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes; Prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe; Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima; The Rosary: Method; The Rosary: Mysteries; Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary; and Akathistos Hymn. Hymns include O First-Born Daughter, Immaculate Mary, and O Sanctissima.
