Of Marmalade, Marbles, and Melodies : A New Litany of Our Lady
With these warm and humorous meditations on some surprising new additions to a litany to Mary, Of Marmalade, Marbles, and Melodies provides a fresh approach to praying to Mary. According to author Bernadette McCarver Snyder, "The Mary of yesterday is a lovely litany....Our Lady of patience, purity, piety....Mother of Christ, of divine grace, of good counsel...." But, the author asks, "Might Mary also be Our Lady of lost car keys, of dirty dishes, of alternatives, of yearnings, of technology--a new litany for today?" With great reverence, Of Marmalade, Marbles, and Melodies offers a lighthearted look at the Mary of today, a Mary "who understands the bittersweetness of life." Each brief meditation focuses on a specific title gleaned from the garden of everyday life: Our Lady of leadership, of remedies, of deadlines, of aloneness....and of many other challenges that confront men and women today. Of Marmalade, Marbles, and Melodies is appropriate for gift-giving as well as an addition to the buyer's personal spiritual reading collection.
