Looking for Mary
Looking for Mary: Or, the Blessed Mother and Me | Beverly Donofrio
2 posts | 3 to read
In an irreverent but inspiring spiritual memoir, the author describes how, at the age of forty--feeling guilty over her neglect of her grown son and uncertain of her own path in life--she became devoted to the Virgin Mary.

Well over a decade ago, this book introduced me to Medjugorje, a holy site where Mary‘s presence is ever-present. At a time when I was looking for the Divine Feminine, Donofrio‘s book gave me just what I needed. Since then, Mother Mary has had a major impact in my life in large and small ways. Finally, after years of wishing I could go to Medjugorje, I leave later this week for a spiritual pilgrimage.

Reggie Omg, Sue! So you‘re going to Bosnia-Herzegovina? Be safe and I hope you have the journey you‘re looking for. (edited) 2w
Suet624 @Reggie Hahaha. Indeed I am. With a hacking cough and an earache, I‘m going to spread my virus all the way to Bosnia. 😳 Thank you for your good wishes. I‘m so very happy to be going. (edited) 2w
ValerieAndBooks Wow, safe travels and keep us posted on your trip (even if you wait until you get back). I‘m intrigued by the book; stacking it. 2w
Suet624 @ValerieAndBooks Thank you. Donofrio visits many Marian apparition sites throughout the book, but it was this site in particular that captured me. I‘ll be staying with one of the visionaries who was a child when Mary appeared to her and her friends. 2w

“Entering her fortieth year, Beverly Donofrio, a "lapsed Catholic," inexplicably begins collecting Virgin Mary memorabilia at yard sales. Her search for kitsch, however, soon becomes a spiritual quest, leading her to make a pilgrimage to the holy city of Medjugorje. There, she learns that Mary comes into your life only when pride steps out and receives a bonus: hope.”

?When I find myself in times of trouble...?
