Sarah sponsored the show today in honor of Mary and her book, Word by Word: Slowing Down with the Hail MaryWord by Word is now available from Ave Maria Press (and from your local Catholic bookstore or online at your favorite book retailer). In it, Sarah Reinhard has gathered 40 different voices to take a look at why every word — from the “Hail” right down to every single “The” — is a critical part of this prayer. So often, we all tend to whip through the Hail Mary and rattle it off without really considering what we’re praying and saying. This book is sure to make you reconsider the prayer and, hopefully, draw you closer to the Blessed Mother and, through her, to Jesus. Be sure to check the show notes and order your copy today!

You can read more about Sarah and her book here and check out what others are saying about it!

  1. Cindy Coleman on

    I am new to the Hangout technology–is there some benefit to trying to listen to it live as opposed to listening later to the podcast? I don’t see anywhere on CM the time of the hangout, so I am just going with assuming the podcast is the objective. That aside, enjoyed watching it and putting together an order now with amazon for printer ink –and just have to slip in Sarah’s book 🙂

  2. HI Cindy, sorry for the TERRIBLY Delayed response to your comment.
    The only benefit right now is you get to watch while we are actually talking but there is no other real difference right now if you watch it on YouTube later or listen to the Podcast later.
    At some point, we’d like to invite people to Ask us Questions in the Google Hangouts link but that is something we haven’t quite ventured into yet.
    Thanks for listening! I hope you’re enjoying the show.
