The Mirror of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Psalter of Our Lady


Mirror of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Psalter of Our Lady. This is two books combined into one by Saint Bonaventure. Saint Bonaventure begins with a discussion of the Hail Mary and continues to extol the virtues of the Blessed Virgin Mary, her holy name, how Mary has nine privileges symbolized by the nine choirs of angels. How Mary has the seven capital virtues to oppose the seven capital sins, and much more. In the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary Saint Bonaventure paraphrases the 150 Psalms In honor of the Blessed Virgin to which are added canticles in her honor. "Whoever wishes to be saved must hold a firm faith in Mary, which unless anyone shall keep whole and inviolate without doubt shall perish forever." Saint Bonaventure says to us. In this canticle he presents the doctrines of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which we must believe to be truly Christian! St. Alphonsus writes: "a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery." Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: "There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!" We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted. Photographic reproductions are given a page by page inspection, whereas textual reproductions are proofread to correct any errors in reproduction.
