Of Mary There is Never Enough

A tribute to the Blessed Virgin Mother that is unequaled in our times. Drawing on the ancient Fathers and Doctors of the Church and on the hidden Scriptures which tell of the love of God for this singular beauty of His creation, Mr. Biersach has woven a tapestry of his own making, baring a heart not altogether unlike those of the best saints who have written of Her. Some will savor in his writings a whiff of Belloc, others a turn of phrase reminiscent of Chesterton. Bringing with him the terminology of his own generation and some of the flair of the 60's, the author, like a knight in rusty armor, declares his unworthiness to present to us so sublime a Person as She who has captivated the Heart of God. You will want to give copies of this book to everyone who is dear to you. For the answer to all problems, and to paraphrase St. Bernard, "in all things, give them Our Lady!"
William L. Biersach was born in Pasadena, California, on the Feast Day of St. Philip Neri, the "Laughing Saint", in 1953. A product of Catholic grammar and high school, he naturally lost his Faith when the effects of Vatican II came rattling through the world like a maniacal jalopy in the 1960's and 70's. He found his way back to Traditional Rome in 1993 and has been active in trying to reacquaint Catholics with their own religion ever since. The Endless Knot is the first of his Father Baptist novels. He is currently working on the rough draft for the sixth book in the series. He resides in a stone house somewhere in Southern California, likes spicy food, and hopes to retire in Heaven some day.
I am glad I bought this book and that I will have it for future reference and inspiration. It was easy to read and written with a lively pen.
It had many quotes from the Bible, Popes and Saints and more concerning Mary. I learned a lot about Saint Mary which expanded my view of Her and Creation itself! He really put her in a context that makes her more attainable. I feel closer to her and her Son, Jesus Christ and further on my way to reshaping my worldview. Thank you Mr. Biersach.
This book answered so many questions I had about Mary. The One I am most grateful for is why she is called Star of the Sea. This book can be read rather quickly but I was forced by the wonderment of what I was reading, to put it down after every chapter to really meditate on what was being said. Thank you for this fantastic book on Mary!
