“As I stood at the foot of the cross, this pure white garment became saturated with the streams of crimson blood which gushed from His precious body!”
—Our Lady to Saint Anselm
There is no human person who loved Christ more than Mary. And there is no greater act of love than Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.
In these pages, you will find two of the most stirring revelations of Christ’s passion and death ever recorded by Doctors of the Church—Saint Anselm, the Magnificent Doctor, along with writings attributed to Saint Bernard, the Mellifluous Doctor. These private revelations given by Our Lady will enhance one’s prayer life while drawing one deeper into the passion narratives of the Gospels. But what makes this book unique is the heartfelt dialogue between Our Lady and her spiritual sons. Those who read this book will be profoundly moved to not only weep for their sins but to weep for Him whose Blood was completely emptied for our salvation.
The Mother of Sorrows is the woman of the interior life who leads us to the Master of the interior life, the Man of Sorrows. There is no better way to contemplate the passion of Christ than through the eyes of Mary, she who loved Him above everything, she who loved Him with a mother’s heart, and she who stood firmly when everyone else fled.

Beautiful Marian Book
I sat down and read this book in a day. It was a beautiful book on two different reflections on Marys role in the Passion of Christ in the form of conversations,and one reflection of the Passion as Mary would recount it and also the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Simply lovely!
The Passion of Christ Through the Eyes of Mary
St. Anselm knows the power of creative, spiritual expression and it moved my heart to deeper Catholic faith. The translator;s comments throughout this book assisted my understanding of these Middle Ages spiritual writings. My most valuable take away was the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary Meditative Devotion printed in the last 36 pages of this book. It is a very pious way of praying more deeply to our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary.
I have yet to read it but it seems like an impressive work. Thank you TAN Books for publishing this in English for the first time.
The Oassion of Christ
It has advanced my meditation on the mysteries and it provides additional thought to meditate for each Hail Mary. I just ordered more copies to give out. I love this book. Thanks Tan Books.
Great compilation with much food for contemplative thought.
