'The word has the power to become incarnate without Mary. Why then did God incorporate Mary into the economy of our salvation to become the Mother of the Incarnate Word? If God out of love cannot but incarnate himself through Mary for our salvation, what does this suggest for all the graces that come to us through Jesus Christ, our sole Mediator? Is the incarnation of the Word and the Divine Motherhood of Mary and their unfathomable humility not a challenge to the pomposity of any social, political and religious status? Pride being fed by hatred has blinded many humans not to see the incomprehensible love of God and the dignity of human person made manifest in the incarnation of the Word and in particular the dignity of womanhood restored and revealed in Mary. What has love to do with all these?' Reconstructing the story of the Virgin Mary's life through passages in Scripture, poetry, prayers and inspirational narrative, Anthony Mary Mofunanya addresses her often undervalued importance in God's incarnation and redemption of Man. As the woman chosen by God to be the mother of his son, Mary not only raised Jesus for thirty years before he began his ministry, but was also his comfort and refuge during the turbulent three years before his death and resurrection. Most importantly, Mary was the new Eve, immaculately conceived to atone for Adam and Eve's fall from grace in the Garden of Eden, and predestined to be 'the masterpiece of God's creation' and the vessel for Man's salvation.

Marie de l'Incarnation (1599 - 1672), renowned French mystic and founder of the Ursulines in Canada, abandoned her son, Claude Martin, when he was a mere eleven years old to dedicate herself completely to a consecrated religious life. In 1639, Marie migrated to the struggling French colony at Quebec to found the first Ursuline convent in the New World. Over the course of the next thirty-one years, the relationship between Marie and Claude would take shape by means of a trans-Atlantic correspondence in which mother and son shared advice and counsel, concerns and anxieties, and joys and frustrations. From Mother to Son presents annotated translations of forty-one of the eighty-one extant full-length letters exchanged by Marie and her son between 1640 and 1671. These letters reveal much about the early history of New France and the spiritual itinerary of one of the most celebrated mystics of the seventeenth century. Uniting the letters into a coherent whole is the distinctive relationship between an absent mother and her abandoned son, a relationship reconfigured from flesh and blood to the written word exchanged between professed religious united in Jesus Christ as members of the same spiritual family. In providing a contemporary translation of Maries letters to Claude, Mary Dunn renders accessible to an English-speaking readership a rich source for the history of colonial North America, providing a counterpoint to a narrative weighted in favor of Plymouth Rock and the Puritans and a history of New France dominated by the perspectives of men both religious and secular. Dunn expertly contextualizes the correspondence within the broader cultural, historical, intellectual, and theological currents of the seventeenth century as well as within modern scholarship on Marie de lIncarnation. From Mother to Son offers a fascinating portrait of the nature and evolution of Marie's relationship with her son. By highlighting the great range of their conversation, Dunn provides a window onto one of the more intriguing and complicated stories of maternal and filial affection in the modern Christian West.
