Compendium of Marian Devotions
Publication Date: October 11, 2022
She is history's most famous woman, venerated in each corner of the globe. Cathedrals have been built in her honor. Schools, states, cities and religious orders bear her name. Apparitions of her have captured the attention of the world, and miracles have been attributed to her intercession.
For over two thousand years, the Catholic Church has spread devotion to the Mother of God, bringing all the faithful under her maternal mantle. In this single volume, Fr. Ed Broom has compiled an exhaustive encyclopedia of the myriad ways Catholics from the early Church to today have venerated the Virgin Mary. A sweeping tour of history reveals the fascinating and, at times, miraculous origins of the Church's Marian prayers, dogmas, devotions, sacramentals, feasts and novenas. Still more, Father Broom succinctly clarifies the biblical and theological foundations of Marian devotion.
Whether a new convert or a lifelong lover of Our Lady, readers will:
And yet, above all else, Father Broom shows us how much our spiritual mother loves us and wants each of her children to enter the Sacred Heart of her Son.
Compendium of the Marian Devotions, beautifully designed and eloquently written, is a treasure that should grace the bookshelves of every Catholic home.
