Feasts of Our Lady
Talks on Fifty Feasts of Mary Throughout the Year with Two Talks for Mother's Day
Behold a feeble tribute to Our Blessed Mother, an effort to acquaint our people with some of her beauties and graces, her privileges and powers.
With these introductory words, Fr. Arthur Tonne begins this wonderful book devoted to an explanation of the Marian feast days featured in the traditional Roman Missal and observed by some religious congregations or ecclesiastical regions.
Originally published in 1951 as a homiletic aide for priests, this book features 50 feasts of our Lady and 2 additional ones for Mother’s Day (see the image gallery for the Table of Contents).
Each chapter devoted to a feast of our Lady is written in Fr. Tonne’s engaging style of employing a short story to drive home a spiritual point (open the image gallery to read about the August 2 feast of Our Lady of the Angels).
Fr. Tonne declares:
When we realize how good Mary has been to us and to the world, when we realize that she is a merciful, powerful and effective Advocate at the throne of God, we will pledge anew our loyalty to her.
This can be accomplished by understanding and celebrating her feast days.
