This book of daily prayers, scripture, and meditations mixes traditional “fixed hour” prayer (morning, noon, evening, and night) with fresh, inclusive language. It offers a week-long cycle of devotion to God through the life of the Virgin Mary, traditionally recognized as first among the saints, and who has been cherished as a soul friend to Christians since the beginning of the church.
Organized upon the joys and sorrows of the Marian Rosary, this prayer book encompasses the life of Mary as she followed her son and experienced her own discipleship. It gives those who use it a deeper appreciation of the life of the woman.
It holds particular appeal for traditional prayer and study groups, like Daughters of the King, Julian of Norwich prayer groups, members of the Third Order of the Franciscans, and denominational women’s organizations, spiritual seekers, plus all those drawn to a flexible, yet regular prayer routine.
