About this Book:
Do Catholics actually worship Mary? What exactly is her role in Catholic spirituality? How do Catholics justify their beliefs, some of which don't seem to have biblical attestation? Why should honoring Mary be important not just to Catholics, but to all Christians? What are the meanings and origin of Marian devotion, one of the most ancient and beautiful of all Christian traditions?
In What Mary Means to Christians, noted Catholic speaker, priest, and theologian Peter Stravinskas provides concise yet extremely thorough explanations of every aspect of the Marian tradition, including some interesting facts that Catholics themselves might not be aware of. Written not only for Catholics, but for non-Catholics who want an objective explanation of Mariological beliefs, this invaluable resource for both lay people and clergy explains how the ancient tradition of devotion to the Blessed Mother is proper not just to Catholicism, but to the entire Christian tradition as a whole.
