      Do not be fooled by the book's unassuming appearance. It's small and thin, and yet it's profound! Well what else can you expect from the writer of The Imitation of Christ? It took me more than a month to finish it! Not that it's difficult, but it is so deep that I needed to take a breath every so often to contemplate what I had just read. Each word is a gem, some sentences are diamonds. It certainly helps me tremendously with my [severely lacking] devotion to the Blessed Mother.

      Aún no leí la Imitación de Cristo, pero conociendo ahora este trabajo será el siguiente paso. ¿Cómo no amar a la madre de Jesús? ¿Como no sentirse tan poca cosa al lado de su pureza y belleza?. Tomás de Kempis no resiste la devoción que tiene a María Santísima y dedica estas páginas que fueron luego compiladas en un sólo libro.Excelente para meditar y tenerlo en la oración.

      If you want to understand a man, you really need to know his mother. Who is Jesus, how should we love Him? Mary is the most obvious one to ask. Learning to imitate her is learning to love her Son fully and truly. I have yet to meet a more experienced and capable guide on this journey. She helped me find Him, she helps me stay close to Him. A must read for all Christians.

      This is a great book to read a little of each day. I found the small chapters very effective for prayer and reflection. Overall, the book is well-written and a joy to read.

      Very sentimental style of writing with prayerful thoughts about the life of Mary, Jesus and Joseph.

      Mary, my MotherIt teaches us of the riches that Mary wants to give each one of us. We need only trust and ask.

      A beautiful, beautiful Marian book for anyone devoted to Our Lady. It was written in response to the popularity of "The Imitation of Christ," which created a demand for one about the Holy Mother, structured in a similar manner. This little book should be part of every personal Marian library.

      I have nothing against the Divine Feminine or the Feminine Divine, but this book was morbid and infantile.
