Written by a Jungian therapist, Blessed Among Women is the first popular book to explore contemporary Marian encounters and discuss their psychological and emotional meanings and lessons.
"This book is about one of the most important events in human history--the encounter with Divine Presence. These events are transformative and healing .... In an age of doubt and cynicism, this book is a valuable resource." -- Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words and Recovering the Soul
Blessed Among Women recounts more than 50 uplifting, true stories of encounters with Mary, the mother of Jesus. These encounters take place in the city and the countryside, in dreams or during moments of indecision, emotional turmoil, sickness, and even joy. Yet they all transform the course of someone's life and unleash an inner strength and a renewed sense of faith and compassion.
In his absorbing commentary, Dr. Sparrow puts the encounters in a historical, psychological, and spiritual context, and he shows how to get in touch with Mary's inspiring directives, her presence and energy. Blessed Among Women is filled with hope, wonder, and accounts of divine transcendence.
