“Behold your Mother” John 19:27

Books

Meet Your Mother.

Ever wonder why so many people pay so much attention to Mary, the Mother of Jesus? From the most ancient traditions of Mary in Christianity to the “Hail Mary” pass in American football, the Mother of Jesus has pervaded most world cultures for the last two thousand years.

But could the Mother of Jesus also be your mother?

That’s the question explored in the exciting new book, Meet Your Mother. This easy-read pocket book on Mary covers all the major teachings about the Mother of Jesus, but is particularly written for the person who has little or no background knowledge about her. Authored by Dr. Mark Miravalle, (a professor who has taught and written about Mary for over 25 years), Meet Your Mother is the perfect little book to introduce someone to the life and truth about Jesus’ Mother, but also to renew a person’s existing knowledge and love for the woman believed to have brought Jesus into the world, and who Jesus gave personally to every human being with his dying words, “This is your mother.”

Here’s an excerpt from the Introduction of Meet Your Mother:

“This little book is about your Mother. I know, you might not see her as that right now, but that’s the point of the book—to meet her, if you do not already know her, and if you do already know her, to love her more… Now, please consider reading on, even if you do not consider Jesus to be your best friend, and/or if you don’t presently believe Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is your spiritual mother. I would be honored if you would at least give me the chance to try to explain why I believe you do, in fact, have the most beautiful and the most perfect mother in the world – a maternal gift of love and sacrifice from the dying Jesus, personally, to you. If nothing else, you may have a new understanding of why well over 1.5 billion people living today do believe they have the Mother of Jesus as their own spiritual mother as well. And beyond Catholics and Orthodox Christians, there are millions and millions of other members of our human family, including many Protestant Christians, Muslims, and other world religions who give a special place of honor to the Mother of Jesus.”

It is, indeed, time to meet the Angels.

The time is now to know, to appreciate, to befriend, and to love these heavenly beings who already know and love us, and who spend much of their efforts in guiding us to Heaven and protecting us from Hell.

We need to meet them, first of all, because they are real. We also need to meet them because we need their powerful intercession In the midst of the spiritual battle between good and evil which is being fought in dramatic and perhaps unprecedented fashion in our homes, at our schools, in our workplaces, in our neighborhoods, and throughout the world…”

-From the Introduction

Time To Meet The Angels answers the most asked questions about the nature and function of the Angels; the profound “Nine Choirs” of Angels, and the joyful call to enter a deeper relationship with your own Guardian Angel.

Various Authors

ISBN 978-1-57918-355-7

Fifteen international Mariology scholars contributed to the compilation of Mariology: A Guide for Priests, Deacons, Seminarians, and Consecrated Persons. The book features a Foreword and Imprimatur by St. Louis Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, who writes, “Mariology: A Guide for Priests, Deacons, Seminarians, and Consecrated Persons is an extraordinarily complete and rich tool for coming to a deeper knowledge of the teaching of the Church on the Blessed Virgin Mary, for growing in Marian devotion and for developing the means of communicating knowledge and love of the Mother of God to others.” The book offers answers to many of the questions that come up in ministry, with a thorough treatment of the Church’s long-standing teaching on the Mother of God. The anthology, edited by Dr. Mark Miravalle of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, features 17 chapters divided among four major sections: 1) Mary in Scripture and the Early Church; 2) Marian Dogma; 3) Marian Doctrine; and 4) Marian Liturgy and Devotion.

Dr. Scott Hahn, international Catholic authority, enthusiastically praises Mariology: A Guide for Priests, Deacons, Seminarians, and Consecrated Persons, saying “Buy this book and make a present of it to your parish priest, the religious sister you know, the seminarian from your diocese, or the consecrated person or educated layperson at your parish. It’s a Mariological ‘must read’ especially for our priests and seminarians.”

Meet Mary: Getting to Know the Mother of GodMeet Mary: Getting to Know the Mother of God
Dr. Mark Miravalle
Sophia Institute Press, 2008
121 pp.
ISBN: 978-1-933184-32-6

She’s a simple peasant they call Queen of Heaven. She’s the Lord’s humble servant, yet an icon of female strength. She’s mother of all, yet ever-virgin, lowly and exalted. Sinners fly to her but angels bow. Mary, mother of Jesus, is the most recognized woman in history . . . and the most misunderstood.

Non-Christians paint her as an earth goddess. Skeptics say she’s a fictional projection of male psychological needs. Many Protestants grudgingly acknowledge that someone had to bear the Savior, but otherwise regard Mary as an ordinary, sinful woman — in whom Christians have tragically misplaced the faith and devotion due only to her Son.

Even many Catholics don’t know Mary as well as they should. Do you know the Church’s five essential Marian doctrines, and how they’re rooted in Scripture and Sacred Tradition? Can you explain the difference between the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth? Or share the messages and secrets of Mary’s most famous apparitions?

Meet Mary, from Marian expert Dr. Miravalle, tells you all that and more. You’ll learn everything the Bible says about her, what the early Christians believed, and all of the Church’s key Marian teachings these past 2,000 years.

Soon, you’ll turn to Mary with your cares and joys; in sorrows you’ll experience her gentle embrace. You’ll also become a better disciple of Jesus, for the Son commands us to imitate him in all things — including perfect love of his mother.

“It’s time for you to know more about the Mother of Our Lord, and this book will do precisely that for you.” Scott Hahn

The Seven Sorrows of ChinaThe Seven Sorrows of China
Dr. Mark Miravalle
Queenship, 2007
93 pp.
ISBN: 978-1-57918-349-2

“In the most difficult periods of the recent history of the Catholic Church in China, the lay faithful, both as individuals and families and as members of spiritual and apostolic movements, have shown total fidelity to the Gospel, even paying a personal price for their faithfulness to Christ” – Pope Benedict XVI

Dr. Miravalle’s intense experiences as he travels through modern China provide a realistic picture of life outside of Beijing. He vividly recalls his recent trip traveling through China detailing the daily struggles of the Catholic faithful. Dr. Miravalle’s concise elegant writing style delivers a seven-image portrait of today’s China. A portrait that conflicts with the commercialized images of a recently liberated country, but a portrait that remains hopeful anyway.

Dr. Mark Miravalle

51 pp.
ISBN: 978-1-57918-347-6

Who is St. Philomena? Pope Gregory XVI referred to her as the “wonder-worker” of the nineteenth century. Bl. Pope Pius XI declared her the “Patroness of the Children of Mary.” St. John Vianney attributed all of his miracles to her, stating, “I have never asked for anything through the intercession of my Little Saint without having been answered.”

This early virgin-martyr continues her wonder-working ways in our twenty-first century. Devotion to St. Philomena is spreading like a re-kindled wildfire throughout the universal Church today, with testimonies to her miraculous intercession being received by the international shrine of St. Philomena in Mugnano, Italy, from all parts of the world. St. Philomena wishes to exercise her remarkable power of intercession, precisely for you. It is time for you to meet St. Philomena.

“In truth, how can any faithful Catholic question the appropriateness of the Co-redemptrix title as applied to our Blessed Mother when it has been pronounced by a litany of popes, saints, blesseds, mystics, doctors of the Church, and conciliar theologians throughout the history of the Church, including Pope John Paul II, as documented in this work by Dr. Miravalle?”

Doctrinal Issues TodayMary Co-redemptrix: Doctrinal Issues Today
Dr. Mark Miravalle, ed.
Various Authors
Queenship, 2002
274 pp.
ISBN: 1-57918-176-7

The wealth of ideas, principles, and outstanding theological exposition reflected in this volume, the work of an exceptional international team of theologians and mariologists, calls the contemporary bishop, pastor, theologian, or lay leader to dedicate time and attention to this important work and topic, so as to be properly informed and appreciative of the recent mariological development of the doctrine of Marian coredemption within the Church today.

In our present world situation, in the midst of so much human suffering and global unrest, is the relevance of the doctrine of Mary Co-redemptrix not obvious to us? What doctrine better conveys the Christian mystery of the supernatural value of human suffering under any condition, including conditions beyond our earthly control, than that of Mary Co-redemptrix?

The solemn declaration of Our Lady as Dogma by the Vicar of Christ ushers in, in a new way both profound and supernatural, the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. It is the key that unlocks the graces of the Triumph.
Her titles are her works, her titles are her functions, and the solemn proclamation of Our Mother’s titles will leader to the full release of her most powerful sanctifying functions of grace and peace for the many crises experienced in the contemporary Church and world.

Towards a Papal Definition?Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, Advocate: Theological Foundations: Towards a Papal Definition?
Dr. Mark Miravalle, ed.
Various Authors
Queenship, 1995

The missio of this work can be stated simply and succinctly: to delineate and develop the theological foundations that support and call forth a papal definition of the universal mediation of Mary in its three essential aspects as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix of all grace, and Advocate for the People of God. It is to illustrate the true definability of Mary’s universal and maternal mediation as manifested in the sources of Divine Revelation, as developed and articulated theologically by the Church’s fathers, doctors, and theologians, and as explicitly taught and confirmed by the Papal Magisterium.

ISBN: 1-882972-10-4

“I read with pleasure and admiration this theological study of Mary, Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, Advocate … I had the great honor to be the professor of Mariology to the Polish student Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II), when he attended the Pontifical Athenaeneum International “Angelicum” in Rome for his license and doctorate in theology …

I share the hope of Dr. Miravalle: ‘There is only one final action that remains in bringing the Marian roles of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate into the fullest acknowledgement and ecclesial life of the People of God: that our Holy Father, in his office as Vicar of Christ proclaim the Marian roles of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces, and Advocate for the People of God as Christian dogma revealed by God, in rightful veneration of the Mother of Jesus, and for the good of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church of Christ.’ ”
