ST PAULS - Shame, Hope and the Church: A Journey with Mary - Ryan SM, Thomas

Shame, Hope and the Church: A Journey with Mary

By Ryan SM, Thomas (Author)
$24.95 AUD

Feeling ashamed is something we all experience. It is a painful and pressing reality for today’s Church. Jesus himself knew what it felt like. But we can easily forget that it was part of the life of Mary, his mother. This book, brilliantly written by theologian, Thomas Ryan, accompanies Mary in her own moments of shame and, even, public humiliation. It explores how such disruptive events can offer positive opportunities, with Mary, to learn, to grow and, importantly, to renew hope for our troubled Church.   This highly original book is essential reading for all in today’s turbulent world who seek to be inspired and guided by the lessons of the life of Mary, Mother of God.
