101 Surprising Facts about Mary

101 Surprising Facts about Mary
$19.95
She is history's most famous woman, with more schools, churches, and people named for her than any other. She has inspired countless pieces of art and literature, as well as the construction of some of the biggest churches in the world.

Yet the poets also call her "the woman wrapped in silence."

What lies between these two extremes?

Unpack the mystery that is the Mother of God, a woman who barely speaks in scripture and yet is venerated by millions. In this latest installment of TAN Book's 101 Surprising Facts series, you'll discover:

  • The term "full of grace" has profound theological implications
  • A miraculous snowfall during a sweltering Roman summer led to the construction of a prominent Marian landmark
  • One hymn to the Blessed Virgin forbids sitting while it is being sung
  • Many different kinds of flowers take their name from Mary
  • Dominicans hang rosaries from their hips to emulate medieval soldiers who donned swords in the same place
  • The Sistine Chapel is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception
  • A vision of Mary consoled the Irish in the aftermath of the great potato famine
  • The Mississippi River and the city of Los Angeles had names that were once tied to Our Lady
  • ...and more!
  • This swift walk through history will uncover the Church's rich Marian treasury and draw you closer to your spiritual mother, so that she can draw you closer to her Son.

    $14.95
    Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, the best-selling author of the influential Joy of Priesthood, has assembled fascinating reflections from nine esteemed fellow priests who share how their devotion to the Blessed Mother has supported their life and ministry.

Behold Your Mother seeks to renew this practice for both younger clergy and those with years of priestly life. From stories of childhood devotion to the Blessed Mother to personal encounters with some of the great spiritual figures from recent times, these essays have both a personal and practical character that priests--and the laity as well--will deeply appreciate.

    Behold Your Mother: A Biblical and Historical Defense of the Marian Doctrines
    Staples, Tim
    $22.95
    From the cross Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother, too: a singularly holy model, consoler, and intercessor for our spiritual journey. Yet most Protestants, and too many Catholics don't understand the role that God wants her to play in our lives. In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church's teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone. Combining the best recent scholarship with a convert's in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you'll find anywhere. Relevant and essential -- Mary matters. Read Behold Your Mother and find out just how much.

    Children of Fatima and Our Lady's Message to the World

    Children of Fatima and Our Lady's Message to the World
    Windeatt
    $11.95
    "What if nothing wonderful happens on the 13th? Aren't you afraid people will laugh at you then?" asked the parish priest, as he looked closely at 10-year-old Lucia. "Oh no, Father!" replied Lucia. "I know something wonderful is going to happen on the 13th. The Lady told us so." Nine-year-old Francisco and 7-year-old Jacinta were equally certain. October 13 dawned cold and rainy. Out in the sheep pasture, huddled under dripping umbrellas, was a huge crowd of 70,000 people-cold, muddy, tired. Lucia's mother was beside herself with anxiety. "O Lucia!" she exclaimed. "Are you very sure there is a heavenly lady?" Lucia was sure. The 3 children knelt and began to recite the Rosary. Presently, Lucia saw the familiar flash of light. "She's coming!" she cried. "Take a good look, Child!" her anxious mother called out. "Don't make any mistake!" This book tells what happened next. It also tells about the great Miracle of the Sun, as well as about the time Jacinta gave away the children's secret, the time the children were put into prison, and the time they received Holy Communion from a mysterious Angel. In short, here is the beautiful story of the 3 little children who saw Our Lady in the small village of Fatima, Portugal.

    Crown of the Virgin: An Ancient Meditation on Mary's Beauty, Virtue, and Sanctity

    Crown of the Virgin: An Ancient Meditation on Mary's Beauty, Virtue, and Sanctity
    Nixon, Robert
    $24.95
    In this book, St. Ildephonsus of Toledo provides a powerful, imaginative, and lyrical set of meditations on the Immaculate Mother of God, reflecting on her splendor, beauty, and sanctity.

    This publication is the first translation into English of a Latin work, entitled Libellus de Corona Virginis, or "The Little Book on the Crown of the Virgin." Traditionally, it has been ascribed to St. Ildephonsus of Toledo, a great monk, abbot, and bishop of the 7th century. St. Ildephonsus contributed powerfully to the dissemination of the doctrine of the Perpetual Virginity of Our Lady in Western Europe, and to the popularization of fervent Marian devotion in Spain. In this beautiful, moving and ornate literary portrait, the author imaginatively and lyrically fashions a magnificent crown for the Blessed Virgin Mary, decorated with twelve radiant jewels, six brilliant stars, and six fragrant flower blossoms. Each of these is interpreted as representing a particular aspect of the beauty, beneficence, virtue, or sanctity of the Blessed Virgin.

    A perfect companion for guiding daily devotion to the Mother of Mercy and the Queen of Heaven, each chapter reveals a new and scintillating glimpse into the glories of Mary, sure to inspire the heart of the reader with ever more ardent devotion to the Mother of God, the vessel of all graces and the paradigm and perfection of every virtue. As a guide to meditation and a catalyst for prayer, the Crown of the Virgin is an illuminating mirror of the beauty and splendor of the one who is herself the refulgent and immaculate image of her Divine Son.

    Family Consecration to Jesus Through Mary: 33-Days of Preparation with Saint Louis Marie de Montfort

    Family Consecration to Jesus Through Mary: 33-Days of Preparation with Saint Louis Marie de Montfort
    Cooper O'Boyle, Donna-Maria
    $18.95
    Saint Faustina warned parents that praying for their children is not enough. That's why so many conscientious parents take the further step of consecrating their children to Jesus through Mary, thereby defending them from evil and paving their way to Heaven.

    This book walks you through the simple process of doing just that. Its informed pages give you detailed instructions to help you lead your family (ages seven and up) through each of the 33 mini-retreat days recommended by Saint Louis de Montfort, the beloved eighteenth-century priest and confessor who tirelessly preached that Jesus is not known well enough because Mary is not known well enough.

    Adapted for the often less-than-ideal prayer circumstances of families "€" particularly those with young children "€" these 33 brief, stress-free daily spiritual exercises and family activities bring adults and children greater knowledge of Jesus through Mary, and a more fervent love of both.

    Fatima: 100 Questions and Answers on the Marian Apparitions

    Fatima: 100 Questions and Answers on the Marian Apparitions
    $14.95

    From May to October, 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared six times to three shepherd children in the tiny village of Fatima, Portugal. What started as a private matter was soon known all over town, throughout the country, and around the world. These apparitions are fascinating, and have gripped the imagination of people all over the world, from simple believers to academic theologians; from skeptics to the curious; from scientists to popes.

    Fatima: 100 Questions and Answers on the Marian Apparitions utilizes a question-and-answer format to explore the context of these apparitions, why they were so engrossing at the time, what they have meant to the Church and the world in the century since they happened, and why the requests of Our Lady are so important today.

    Questions include:

    Who were these children? Why would Mary appear to them? What were the so-called Secrets of Fatima? What really happened during the Miracle of the Sun? In what ways were the children persecuted by the powerful Freemasons in the Portuguese government? Did the children see a vision that predicted the attempted assassination of St

    Fatima: The Great Sign

    Fatima: The Great Sign
    Johnston, Francis
    $15.95
    This book graphically demonstrates that Our Lady of Fatima's message is not just for pious Christians: it is addressed with compelling earnestness to every man, woman and child in the world. To all, she holds out the power, through the practice of her message, to bring down similar miracles of God's grace into their homes, their towns, their countries, and disperse once and for all the threatened nightmare of worldwide Communism and nuclear war - the specter of the entire caravan of mankind sliding into the abyss. "Fatima: The Great Sign" is, however more than a reiteration of the appealing message given by God through His Mother to our sin-laden twenty-first century. In addition to presenting a thoroughly up-to-date account of the Fatima apparitions of 1916-1929 and the subsequent development of the devotions based on Our Lady's message, the book penetrates deeply into the theology of Fatima, especially that concerning devotion and reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (which Fatima inculcates), and draws upon a wealth of supporting material from the most eminent authorities in the Church which hitherto remained largely unknown. In these critical times, no one can afford to ignore the Fatima message. After reading this book, certainly no informed Catholic should have any reason for doing so.

    Glories of Mary, The
    Liguori, St Alphonsus
    $29.95
    The Glories of Mary by St. Alponsus Ligouri (1696-1787) is one of the greatest Catholic books ever written. Actually, it is five complete books in one volume. Here the great Doctor of the Church has assembled the very finest information about Our Lady that he could find, all taken from many writings of Saints, Doctors of the Church and other holy authors, as well as from Sacred Scripture. The first book (called the "First Part") explains the words of the Salve Regina (the "Hail Holy Queen"), showing how God has given Mary to mankind to be the "Gate of Heaven," even for those who may presently be entrenched in mortal sin. The second book explains Our Lady's principal feasts-the Immaculate Conception, Nativity, Purification, Annunciation, Assumption, etc.-revealing to the reader's mind fresh truths about these mysteries in her life. The third book explains the Seven Sorrows of Mary, showing why Our Lady's "martyrdom" was longer and greater than that of all other martyrs. The fourth book describes ten different virtues of Our Lady, and the fifth book gives dozens of famous prayers, meditations and devotions to her. Actually, The Glories of Mary contains even more than all the above, for St. Alphonsus' books are always packed with treasures on every page. For example, he also includes here the theological proofs for the Immaculate Conception, explanations of the mysterious invocations in the Litany of Loreto, and a description of Our Lady's death. In all, The Glories of Mary amounts to nothing less than the greatest compendium of nearly 18 centuries of Catholic teaching on and devotion to Our Lady. Easily understood by all, this famous book is undoubtedly the best composite of teaching about the Blessed Virgin Mary ever penned and is one that will lead many souls to a greater love of Jesus through a more intimate knowledge of Mary and her exalted role in our salvation.

    Hail Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God

    Hail Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God
    Hahn, Scott
    $16.00
    Essential reading for all Catholics! Bestselling author, Scott Hahn illuminates a fresh and enlightening perspective on Mary, Mother of God, and her central importance in the Christian faith.

    In The Lamb's Supper, Hahn explored the relationship between the Book of Revelation and the Roman Catholic Mass, deftly clarifying the most subtle of theological points with analogies and anecdotes from everyday life. In Hail, Holy Queen, he employs the same accessible, entertaining style to demonstrate Mary's essential role in Christianity's redemptive message.

    Most Christians know that the life of Jesus is foreshadowed throughout the Old Testament. Through a close examination of the Bible, as well as the work of both Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy, Hahn brings to light the small but significant details showing that just as Jesus is the New Adam, so Mary is the New Eve. He unveils the Marian mystery at the heart of the Book of Revelation and reveals how it is foretold in the very first pages of the Book of Genesis and in the story of King David's monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the mother of the king.

    Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: Her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

    Imitation of Mary: How to Grow in Virtue and Merit God's Grace

    Imitation of Mary: How to Grow in Virtue and Merit God's Grace
    Tran, Fr Quan
    $17.95
    Our Lord is constantly pouring out graces upon mankind, yet only a few ‚"‚€‚" those closest to His heart ‚"‚€‚" know how to receive them. Sadly, countless graces are left unclaimed (likely many by you!) and are thus never allowed to further God's will on earth.

    How different our lives would be if we accessed God's grace more intentionally!

    Thankfully, God in His compassion gave us a perfect model for disposing ourselves to His graces and responding to them: the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    In The Imitation of Mary, Fr. Quan Tran shows you how to imitate the twelve essential qualities of Mary in order to unleash a torrent of graces in your life. He explains that, like any gift, grace must be received, opened, and used. As you learn how, you'll begin to acquire the temperaments, dispositions, and qualities that are most pleasing to God ‚"‚€‚" and you'll serve as a channel of God's grace for others.
