Book of the Month, May :
The icon of the Mother of Perpetual Help is probably the best known of all the images of our Blessed Lady. “Icons were written mostly by unknown monks in an atmosphere of prayer and penance. They tried to express the fruits of their own prayer and meditation on the great mysteries of religion through their icons which are more like sermons than pictures. Their aim was to help others who meditated on the icon to deepen their own faith and contemplation.”
In this beautiful booklet, Fr George Wadding CSsR leads us into meditation on the various messages contained in the icon of the Mother of Perpetual Help and suggests a simple prayer after each meditation.
Read each meditation slowly and in an atmosphere of prayer. You will find yourself drawn closer and closer to the hearts of Jesus and Mary.
