Ignatius Press announces release of a cinematographic meditation book on the life of the Blessed Mother
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4, 2014 – MARY of NAZARETH, the epic motion picture on the life of the Blessed Mother from her childhood through the Resurrection of Jesus that was seen by some 200,000 people on 552 screenings in more than 270 cities across North America as part of Ignatius Press’ theatrical and parish screening program, now has a companion volume: Mary of Nazareth: The Life of Our Lady in Pictures.
With inspiring commentary and meditations authored by Marian priest, Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, this full-color companion to the popular film provides further inspiration and insight about the mysterious life of love, faith and sacrifice of the woman God chose to be the Mother of the Savior of mankind, Mary of Nazareth.
The Life of Our Lady in Pictures features over 65 lovely photos from the movie that tell the moving story of the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, from childhood through the Resurrection of her Son, Jesus Christ.
Fr. Calloway, a Marian scholar well-known for his extensive writings on Our Lady, presents in this volume short but profound insights and meditations about Mary, her unique life, her deep relationship with Jesus Christ, her special role in the story of salvation and her importance to all Christians.
“Mary of Nazareth is an absolute theological and Mariological masterpiece! The most stunning portrayal of the Virgin Mary on film,” says Calloway, considered one of the foremost experts on the life of Mary. “It will make you want to love her more than ever.”
