Is Mary a valid intercessor for today or a relic of the past, nice to know of, nice to look at, but nothing more? What do many pray? “Hail, holy Queen, our life, our sweetness, and out hope.” Does Mary inspire our hearts and minds? Is she a vessel of hope? Do we feel a mother’s love?
Three essential concepts intentionally run through this book, if not explicitly certainly implicitly: a mother’s love, hope, and inspiration.
In all the apparitions of the Mother of Jesus to persons throughout the centuries, she has exemplified three qualities: a mother’s love, hope, and inspiration. Yes, at times, she has given people a mission, but underlying that mission are those salient qualities.
