    As the Mother of God, Mary surpasses all other humans and yet is united with all who are to be saved. Here you will find a magnificent and inspiring collection of colorful images, meditations, and prayers about and for Mary, both painted and written.

    Many of McGrath’s paintings in this collection are the result of his loving fascination with Black Madonnas, which have inspired pilgrims, saints, and sin-sick souls for centuries. Combined with Richard Fragomeni’s poetic and candid prayers, these images of Mary speak directly to all people who struggle to find meaning and joy in a world filled with crisis, divisiveness, and insecurity. They speak, too, to the artistic, creative soul in all of us, which longs to see things in new and challenging ways while holding on to the history and traditions of our Catholic heritage.

    "This book is a treasure. It is truly a gift to anyone wanting to deepen the experience of Mary as mother, lady, mystic, and queen." -- Diane Cunningham, pastoral associate at Ss. Peter and Paul Parish (Saginaw, MI), Pastoral Music, November 2005

    "Combining Michael McGrath's ethereal and lovely acrylic paint on watercolor paper artworks with Richard Fragomeni's beautiful prayers [this book] is a superlative celebration of the loving and reverent names for Mary, the mother of Christ. The twenty memorably impressive images comprising this coffee-table style book make it an inspired and inspiring assist for readers seeking contemplation and reflection. Highly recommended." -- James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Library Bookwatch: April 2010 The Christian Studies Shelf
