9780867168310: Mary and Me: Catholic Women Reflect on the Mother of God

"There's no single image of Mary that speaks to women today, and in this lies her power. She's the woman with a thousand faces and a thousand titles, transcending the boundaries of culture and age. She also walks with us on our individual journeys, engaging us in any number of different ways as our circumstances shift and change...You never can predict when or how she'll show up, smiling with gentle recognition, taking up residence in your heart." —From the Epilogue

How does Mary, the Mother of God, speak to the modern female experience?

Does she comfort, challenge or inspire?

Ginny Moyer wanted to know how women today would answer those questions, so she invited women of all ages, some cradle Catholics and some converts, some lay and some religious, to share their thoughts on Mary. In the process of collecting women's stories, Moyer learned that the answers to these questions are as diverse as the women themselves.

In Mary and Me you will discover:

  • An eating disorder activist who describes how Mary helped her overcome her struggles with anorexia.
  • An attorney who reveals how a trip to the Holy Land inspired her to see Mary not as a passive figure but as a tough and resilient woman.
  • A religious sister who shares how the Visitation inspires her work with recovering drug addicts and prostitutes.
  • A music teacher and mother who explains her difficulty in relating to Mary's perfection, but how she still treasures Mary as a personal friend and ally.
Woven with commentary and Scripture references, Mary and Me offers a fresh, compelling look at the depth and breadth of Mary's influence on women today.
