    One thought on “Meet Mary”

    1. I really wanted to like this book. I had been meaning to read a book on Mariology for a couple of years and this was the one I selected.

Even if you finish and are utterly unconvinced by Marian Dogma, I doubt anyone would be genuinely disappointed in reading it.

    3. Mary is the new Eve, and has a vital role in Salvation History. Miravalle reveals Marian dogma and details important Marian Apparitions. Easy to read, not lengthy, but is a powerful aid to understanding Mary and how she leads us to Jesus, today.
