Summer's here, the days are getting longer, and June is the month when we celebrate Father's Day and Volunteers’ Week along with the summer solstice, midsummer and Wimbledon tennis tournament. This year is especially busy as we also celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Take some time out from the busyness of June to reflect and read some of the books we offer.

If we reflect on the stages of Virgin Mary's journey of faith, it will help us to put order into our own lives, re-establishing the primacy of God in our lives and rediscovering contemplation of Christ and service of neighbour as the first tasks of evangelisation. Following in the footsteps of her spiritual journey, under her protection and guidance, we too can become companions in the adventure of Mary, mother of Jesus. We too can become, at the same time, a space open to receive God, mothers of God as St Augustine says. This is the challenge, and this is the grace which awaits those who allow themselves to be evangelised by contemplating Mary.
