This book should be confused with shorter works by Saint Alphonsus issued under the title of 'The Glories of Mary'. This is a photographic reprint of the 1852 edition of the English translation of this work, and is complete. The first section is an exhaustive explanation of the Salve Regina, the Hail Holy Queen. At the end of this section is a collection of devout prayers by the Saints to the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is not in other editions. The second section is a series of discourses on the seven major feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary. These are the Immaculate Conception, the Birth of Mary, The Presentation of Mary in the Temple, the Annunciation, the Visitation, the Purification of Mary at Jesus' Presentation in the Temple, and the Assumption. Added to this is a discourse on the Seven Sorrows of Mary. The next section goes into detail into each of the seven dolors of Mary. The next section considers the many virtues of Mary, her humility, charity, faith, hope, chastity, poverty, obedience and patience. Also Mary's prayer is considered in depth, since she is a model for us in prayer. This section includes the many practices of devotion to Mary, such as the Hail Mary, the Novenas before her feasts, the Rosary, fasting, visiting images of Mary, the Brown Scapular, etc.
