Book review: The Imitation of Mary
The Imitation of Mary
by Alexander de Rouville (319 pages)
What better way to Christ than through His own mother? By following in the footsteps of the Blessed Mother, we not only increase our devotion to her, but also to Christ Himself. This beautiful little blue book, The Imitation of Mary , by Alexander de Rouville (b. 1716), is a collection of reflections that follows Mary from the beginning of her life to the end. Infused with scripture, it highlights her conduct, virtues, and sentiments, in order that we may meditate upon them and, in turn, imitate them. Much of the book is even written from the Blessed Mother’s point of view, giving an insight into her life that is both engaging and beautiful. This book makes a great gift for daughters, mothers, grandmothers, or any Catholic desiring to imitate the virtues of Our Lady. Click the image above to purchase the book through Amazon.com.
