hail-holy-queen-hahnHail, Holy Queen, by Scott Hahn
Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: Her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

mary-christian-live-welbornMary and the Christian Life, by Amy Welborn (3 copies)
In this book by best-selling author Amy Welborn, Mary comes to life for us, both as the mother of Jesus and as his first disciple. Through her expressive and meditative style, Welborn offers fresh insights into Mary’s story, with all of its wonder, love, and adversity. Each moment in Mary’s life serves as a mirror for us, showing us how we, as Jesus’ disciples, can open ourselves in the same way to whatever he wants for us. Each chapter features selections about Mary from saints, popes, and church fathers along with explanations of the history behind popular Marian devotions, hymns, and prayers, from the rosary to the Salve Regina.

mary-and-me-moyerMary and Me: Catholic Women Reflect on the Mother of God, by Ginny Kubitz Moyer, courtesy of the author
How does Mary, the Mother of God, speak to the modern female experience? Does she comfort, challenge or inspire? Ginny Moyer wanted to know how women today would answer those questions, so she invited women of all ages, some cradle Catholics and some converts, some lay and some religious, to share their thoughts on Mary. In the process of collecting women’s stories, Moyer learned that the answers to these questions are as diverse as the women themselves.

worlds-first-love-sheenThe World’s First Love, by Fulton Sheen, courtesy of Aquinas & More
While considering the different phases of Mary’s life, Bishop Sheen discusses various problems common to mankind of every age and reveals clearly that every problem can be resolved. He emphasizes the unique dignity, strength and gifts of women and their ability to help heal the world’s problems. Sheen stresses mankind’s need of the Mother of God and her burning love for all her children. The great resurgence of devotion to Mary is God’s way of emphasizing the worth and dignity of every person against the false doctrines that have so confused the modern world.

  15. Kathryn b. on

    Thank you so much to those who donated thesse items and to you who are offering the giveaway. Know that you will all be in my prayers this month dedicated to our Blessed Mother!

  16. I was baptized Catholic as a 3-day old baby and raised Protestant. As an adult woman of 40 I was confirmed into the Catholic Church. Like other statements above, I too feel as if Mary has been a mother to me throughout my life. Even when I was practicing a Protestant faith I felt drawn to her. I remember watching the Rosary on EWTN in my 30s and teaching myself how to say the Hail Mary prayer. Once I was confirmed I learned the Rosary which has been so eye-opening as so powerful. I love being Catholic!

    Thanks for listening and please enter me in your drawing.


  17. Thank you Sarah Reinhard, Lisa Hendey, Donna-Marie Cooper, and all of my facebook friends who have contributed to this wonderful website. I just heard of this website this morning when I heard Lisa on the radio (way to go, Lisa!) It is a place of cyber-solace.

    I’m new to this site, heard Lisa talk today on KBVM radio in Portland. I’m very excited about connecting with other Catholic moms here. The gifts are lovely. Please enter me in the drawing. Blessings to all of you, Julie

  19. Your selection of gifts speaks to the various aspects of Catholic motherhood: the rosary & decorative case — our need to pray; the books — our need to grow in our Faith; the various jewelry — our need to have our vanity celebrated just a teeny bit; the Tupperware — our homes as our domain! I’d say the only thing missing is chocolate!!!! Thank you for setting up this drawing and giving us a chance to win these delightful treats — but most especially for encouraging us to imitate our Mother in Heaven — our most treasured and cherished gift!

  20. Wow, this is an awesome giveaway. The longer I am a Catholic (coming on 3 years now) the more I am drawn to the Blessed Virgin.
