9780921440048: Our Lady of Combermere

The story of Our Lady of Combermere, and of true devotion to Mary.

Physically, "Our Lady of Combermere" is a life-sized bronze statue of the Mother of God. Approved by the Sacred Congregation of Rites in Rome, and blessed by the local Bishop, the public shrine for Our Lady of Combermere was created in a humble little grove near the highway in rural Combermere, Ontario, Canada.

But spiritually, Our Lady of Combermere hastens with arms open wide to welcome and embrace every human soul, and to bring them closer to her Son, Jesus Christ.

Featuring writings from both Catherine and Eddie Doherty, this informative booklet will illumine for you her influence on the lives of Catherine and Eddie, and the life of the Madonna House Apostolate. With photographs, and thoughts on St. Louis de Montfort's "true devotion" to Jesus through Mary, you too can discover what it is to be drawn closer into Our Lady's loving embrace, and into the heart of her Son.

Includes the poem, song, prayer and litany to Our Lady of Combermere, and contributions from Bishop William Smith, Father Gene Cullinane and Father Emile Briere.

Many who read this booklet of Our Lady of Combermere will never visit Combermere, Ontario. Yet Our Lady of Combermere belongs to you and you belong to her. She is searching for you--running to you with open arms, offering herself to you as your mother. No one is beyond her search, no one too hopeless or isolated, no one too abandoned as not to be found and cared for by the Mother of God, Our Lady of Combermere.

Once she has you in her embrace, she carries you to Nazareth and bring you into her own family--into a closer relationship with her Son, Jesus.

There, in Nazareth, she will show you slowly, day by day, the mysteries of God; not from the outside but from within, as she lived them and as you will live them.

About the Author:

Catherine de Hueck Doherty used her heritage as a Russian Christian as a matrix for responding to the needs of Christian life and work in the modern world. Her own personal pilgrimage led her to be "poor with the poor Christ" in the slums of Toronto and in Harlem; and later to the establishing of the world-wide Madonna House Apostolate. A dedicated wife and mother, Catherine was also a prolific writer of hundreds of articles, a best-selling author of dozens of books, a renowned national speaker, and a pioneer of social justice. Catherine Doherty's cause for canonization as a saint is now under consideration by the Catholic Church.

In his long career as an ace newspaper reporter and best-selling author, Eddie Doherty has touched the hearts of thousands with his gifted reporter's flair for words--and his lively and irresistable writing style seasoned with wit and humour. A father who suffered the tragic deaths of two wives, Eddie grew determined to help others grasp how even this world's harshest sorrows can be resplendent with Christ's light. Having met Catherine de Hueck at her mission in Harlem, Eddie later married and co-founded the world-wide Madonna House Apostolate with her. In his later years, he was ordained a priest in the Melkite Catholic Church.
