Hail, Holy Queen, by Scott Hahn
Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: Her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

Mary and the Christian Life, by Amy Welborn (3 copies)
In this book by best-selling author Amy Welborn, Mary comes to life for us, both as the mother of Jesus and as his first disciple. Through her expressive and meditative style, Welborn offers fresh insights into Mary's story, with all of its wonder, love, and adversity. Each moment in Mary's life serves as a mirror for us, showing us how we, as Jesus' disciples, can open ourselves in the same way to whatever he wants for us. Each chapter features selections about Mary from saints, popes, and church fathers along with explanations of the history behind popular Marian devotions, hymns, and prayers, from the rosary to the Salve Regina.

Mary and Me: Catholic Women Reflect on the Mother of God, by Ginny Kubitz Moyer, courtesy of the author
How does Mary, the Mother of God, speak to the modern female experience? Does she comfort, challenge or inspire? Ginny Moyer wanted to know how women today would answer those questions, so she invited women of all ages, some cradle Catholics and some converts, some lay and some religious, to share their thoughts on Mary. In the process of collecting women's stories, Moyer learned that the answers to these questions are as diverse as the women themselves.
