I discovered this title in our bookshelf this month. If you are a homeschooling family or bibliophiles you will know how easy it is to find new discoveries amongst your own shelves! Here is a quote from the second chapter just to wet your appetite.
"without her we can never get to our lord. She is not to be compared to our Lord, for she is a creature and He is the Creator! But if we loose her we cannot get to Him! That is why we pay so much attention to her;without her we could never understand how that bridge was built between heaven and earth!
You may object and say:"Our Lord is enough for me. I have no need of her." But He did,whether you do or not. But what is more important, our Blessed Lord said we needed her, for He gave us His Mother as our Mother. On that Friday men call Good when he was unfurled upon that Cross as the banner of salvation, He looked down to the two most precious creatures He had on earth: His Mother and His Beloved Disciple John! ...Now in the darkening shadows of Calvary He adds a codicil to his Will. there beneath the Cross, not prostrate, but as the Gospel notes "stood" His Mother. As a Son He thought of His Mother; as a Saviour He thought of us. So He gave to us His Mother, saying;"Behold thy Mother." Then speaking to Her He addressed her under the title of universal motherhood."Woman," and reminded her of each of us:"Behold Thy Son."
