The Mystical Rose
John Henry Cardinal Newman
From the pen of the most renowned Catholic thinker of the nineteenth century comes this defence of the Church’s Marian devotion. Newman examines the New Testament and the writings of the Church Fathers to show that this devotion is on a firm apostolic foundation. Then he explains the sound doctrinal bases of the titles given to Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto: Mystical Rose, House of Gold, Mirror of Justice, Queen of Angels, Tower of Ivory, Singular Vessel of Devotion, Queen of Martyrs, and more.
