The great Doctor of the Church, St. Alphonsus Liguori, has assembled here the very finest information about Our Lady, taken from the many writings of the Saints, holy authors, and from Sacred Scripture. The Glories of Mary is five complete books in one volume. The first book explains the words of the Salve Regina, shows how God has given Mary to mankind to be the Gate of Heaven. The second book explains Our Lady s principal feasts and reveals to the reader s mind fresh truths about these mysteries. The third book explains the Seven Sorrows of Mary and shows why Our Lady s martyrdom was longer and greater than that of all other martyrs. The fourth book describes ten different virtues of Our Lady, and the fifth book gives dozens of famous prayers, meditations and devotions to her.Included are the theological proofs for the Immaculate Conception, explanations of the invocations in the Litany of Loreto, and a description of Our Lady s death. The Glories of Mary is the greatest compendium of nearly 18 centuries of teaching on Our Lady, and will lead many souls to a greater love of Jesus through a more intimate knowledge of Mary and her exalted role in our salvation.
