"Over the centuries Christians have bestowed upon Mary innumerable titles of devotion -- some lists include more than six thousand titles -- from Ark of the New Covenant to Virgin of Tenderness . . . And this proliferation of titles reflects the different ways people relate to Mary, " writes Chiffolo. "While one person may find her comfort in the Mother of Sorrow, another may find his center in the Queen of Peace."

Mary, the Mother of Jesus, has come to be known by many names, reflecting her many different qualities. 100 Names of Mary will help people examine these different qualities and approach the Blessed Mother in new ways. Each of the hundred names selected provides the story about the title of Mary, a traditional prayer and a new prayer that reflects the particular charisms of the title. Readers also will find an inspiring new litany of Mary, a bibliography and an index.

Review:

"Easy-to-read...packed full of history, facts and information for anyone who wants to delve into the topic." -- CRUX of the news

...an inspiring book. -- Faith Connection

...offers a spiritual feast for everyone, whether already devoted to Mary or only beginning to learn about her. -- Catholic New York

...the author examines one hundred titles of Marian devotion. -- Faith Connection (RCL)

...the book shows us the faithful face of the disciple and the feminine face of God -- AIM World Library Publications, Winter 2002

...uses the fifteen mysteries of the rosary as a means of understanding the important Christian virtues... -- Review for Religious

Anthony Chiffolo delves into the reasons Mary bears so many different titles and names. -- The Evangelist, May 9, 2002

Anyone who is even remotely interested in Church History will find this volume fascinating. -- The Episcopal New Yorker, July/August 2002

Chiffolo explores the origins and meanings of what the Church believes about Mary by examining a hundred of these names. -- The Living Light

The reader will meet some old favorites as well as many Madonnas little known here in the United States... -- Catholic Chronicle, Toledo, OH

From Library Journal:

The rise of the scientific method and of death-of-God theology has done nothing to dim the luster of the mother of Jesus Christ; if anything, reported apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary have increased in frequency and urgency since 1900. Chiffolo, author of books on Padre Pio and other Catholic subjects, has created a highly devout and useful guide to 100 of her "names": not limited to the Rosa Mystica or Our Lady of Guadalupe, it includes Our Lady of Akita and Our Lady of Zhyrovytsi. Astonishing in their variety, these stories and prayers should intrigue the Catholic and non-Catholic reader alike. Highly recommended.
