Book Review - A Mary Christmas

A Mary Christmas
by Kathleen M. Carroll

Although by the title, one would assume this is strictly a Christmas book. But this is a great reflective book anytime of year. The book actually takes the reader through the 7 Joys of Mary.

Each chapter begins with the scripture related to the joy and continues with an easy to follow, easy to read view about Mary that may have never before been thought of. This book does not contain any theological breakthroughs, but this was not the intent. It helps us to come closer to Christ through Mary, relate to her holiness, be inspired by her example and give us reflections that are great for the Christmas season, but will work anytime of year.

At only 94 pages, this book could easily be read in a day, or each of the 7 chapters would be a great read and reflection each day for a week. Why not treat yourself to this book, then pass it along in your Church. How many people could it reach by Christmas?
