Preaching The Scriptures Of The Masses Of The Blessed Virgin Mary


The collection of Masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary offers more than 135 Scripture passages through which the faithful might deepen their devotion to Mary. While some texts are very familiar, others are not as well known to contemporary Catholics. In Preaching the Scriptures of the Masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Father David Brown examines each of the texts in detail, offering valuable insights for homily preparation.

Brown’s reflections address themes like Mary’s role in the new creation. His insights into both familiar and lesser known texts provide a unique context for understanding. How does Luke’s account of the annunciation draw on other key scriptural passages? When Esther prays to God “for I am taking my life in my hand,” what is she saying, and why was the text selected for the feast, of Holy Mary, Queen and Mother of Mercy? When passages from Isaiah or Ezekiel appear in the liturgy of a particular Marian feast, what dimension do these prophetic texts add to our vision of Mary? This enlightening resource will animate fresh and engaging preaching and inspire all who wish to know more about honoring the Blessed Mother.
