The story of Mary’s relationship with Jesus goes beyond her nurturing him as a child. She also accompanies him throughout his life stages from childhood to the teen years, from young adult to his maturity, from his thirtieth year to his passion and death, and from his resurrection to his ascension. Throughout his life, Mary continues to hold her son in her love and in her outstanding prayer and contemplation. In 42 scriptural reflections, Fr. Alfred McBride invites us to consider Mary as a young wife and new mother who holds her infant, as the Mother of Sorrows who holds her son when he is taken down from the cross, and as a witness to the infant Church when the Holy Spirit descends in the Upper Room at Pentecost. 13265.
