Month by Month with Mary

I recently stumbled upon a small but powerful book. It dropped in my lap in a timely manner during this May the month of Mary. The book is Month by Month with Mary: Spiritual Insights for Marian Devotion. This book provides a path towards a deeper relationship with Mary the Mother of Jesus, our Mother.

Father Guido Gandolfo is the author of this collection of monthly meditations. The grew out of a monthly Marian contributions father made to the monthly periodical Madre di Dio (Mother of God).This periodical is a publication of the Society of St Paul. Using that as a spring board for the direction he took, Father leaned heavily on Saint Luis de Montfort and Blessed James Alberione.

Each month focuses on a different aspect or title of Mary. Here is the chapter list to give you a feel for the contents.

January – Mary, Mother of God

February – Mary, Who Gives Jesus to the World

March – Mary, Full of Grace

April – Mary, the Woman of Easter

May – Mary in the Cenacle

June – The Immaculate Heart of Mary

July – Our Lady of Mount Carmel

August – The Assumption and Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

September – The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

October – Our Lady of the Rosary

November – The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

December – Mary Immaculate

This is a great little devotional with the monthly meditations approximately 10 pages in length. If you are looking for a solid book that will help you in your desire to grow in deeper devotion to our Blessed Mother, this volume will be a valuable resource.  As Father writes in the introduction, “May we each feel over us the maternal protection of the Virgin Mary, our Mother, Teacher, and Queen of the Apostles.”
