Mary is one of the most popular religious figures in the world today: Two billion prayers are said to her daily; each year five million people visit her shrine at Lourdes; and last year several sightings were made. Yet who was this young girl who agreed to bear a son for her God and what is the source of her extraordinary influence over the faithful? The mystery of this power is explored in Blessed Art Thou Among Women, a beautiful collection of meditations from today's most prominent religious thinkers and popular personalities. Forty works of art from the classic masters to folk artisans to modern artists complement the text and depict Mary in all her incarnations throughout history and throughout the world.
