Marian Consecration with Aquinas: A Nine-Day Path for Growing Closer to the Mother of God
Matt Fradd and Fr. Gregory Pine, O.P.
TAN Books, 75 pages
St. Thomas Aquinas never wrote a word about Marian consecration, but wrote amply about consecration to the religious life. Yet, as the authors of this slim volume point out, the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience, lived radically by religious men and women, are to be lived in spirit by all baptized Christians. So here is the basis for this excellent nine-day preparation for Marian consecration through the teachings of Aquinas, with each day featuring a theological reflection based on Aquinas and a passage from his writings. En route to consecration, you’ll get to know both Aquinas and Our Lady much better.
