Imagine if you were privileged enough to sit beside Our Lady and hear from her very lips the story of Jesus' birth and suffering. In these short, moving reflections, told from the perspective of the Blessed Mother to a child, readers young and old will experience a depth of love for God and closeness to Mary's tender heart such as they have never felt before.

Patrick O' Hearn masterfully guides you through Our Lady's Seven Sorrows with brief Scripture passages, meditations, and prayers for each mystery. He revives the age-old practice of praying seven Hail Marys daily in honor of Our Lady's Seven Sorrows, one of the simplest yet most powerful and grace-releasing devotions in the Catholic Church that every Catholic child should know and practice.

As Our Lady speaks to your soul through these stirring reflections, accompanied by breathtaking illustrations by Adalee Hude, she will help you:

  • Overcome any fear, worry, or doubt
  • Develop virtues such as courage, faith, and perseverance
  • Imitate the Holy Family in practicing obedience, trust, and fidelity
  • Reflect on the life of Jesus from His birth through His Passion
  • Grow in grace and hope in Jesus' Resurrection

This book also contains a collection of traditional prayers in both English and Latin as well as four original prayers by Fr. Chad Ripperger that children can pray daily in gratitude to grow closer to Our Lady and for their vocation and protection.
