New Foreword by Fr. Andrew Apostoli

Anniversary Edition

With his characteristic eloquence and brilliance, Fulton J. Sheen presents a moving portrayal of the Blessed Virgin Mary that combines deep spirituality with history, philosophy and theology. All the major aspects and events of Mary's life are lovingly portrayed in this word portrait that is a never failing source of information, consolation and inspiration. Sheen also gives profound insights into all the Marian beliefs ranging from the Immaculate Conception to the Assumption to the miracle of Our Lady of Fatima.

While considering the different phases of Mary's life, Bishop Sheen discusses various problems common to mankind of every age and reveals clearly that every problem can be resolved. He emphasizes the unique dignity, strength and gifts of women and their ability to help heal the world's problems. Sheen stresses mankind's need of the Mother of God and her burning love for all her children. The great resurgence of devotion to Mary is God's way of emphasizing the worth and dignity of every person against the false doctrines that have so confused the modern world.

"A stimulating literary picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary ... an impressive scope of information."
— Newark News

"A remarkable book by Sheen. Many rays of inspiration are to be gleaned from this thought-provoking work."
— Philadelphia Inquirer

"The whole treatment is based on a high key that reflects the author's deep reverence and devotion for the Blessed Virgin."
— Chicago Sunday Tribune

“With the world situation as challenging as it is today, especially the fear of war and terrorism, this book is truly prophetic. Sheen presents powerful insights into how Our Lady can help us in dealing with the problems in today’s world. Among his many books, Sheen cherished this book as his personal favorite!”
—  Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR

Archbishop Fulton Sheen was one of the most celebrated churchmen of the 20th century. He wrote over sixty books, and his radio and television programs drew an audience of thirty million listeners.
