Nourishing Love

A Franciscan Celebration of Mary
  • By Murray Bodo
$14.99
($16.99)
Product Description
St. Francis had a deep and lifelong devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, committing his order to her care. Franciscan Murray Bodo explores that relationship in this evocative and deeply spiritual encounter with Mary. At the heart of the book, Fr. Murray gives us a glimpse into all that Mary treasured in her heart during her extraordinary lifetime. He shares poems and stories of his own complicated relationship with Mary. He examines Marian devotion across the centuries, particularly through the lens of great Franciscans such as Blessed John Duns Scotus and St. Bonaventure. A collection of Marian prayers rounds out this Franciscan celebration of Mary of Nazareth, Mother of God, Queen of the Angels.

"There is something about a nourishing love that was central to the spirituality of St. Francis. He used to say to his Brothers that they were to love one another, as far as grace enables them to do so, the way a mother loves and nourishes the child of her flesh. And for St. Francis Mary was the mother because of the way she loved and nourished Jesus."--Murray Bodo
