Facing Cancer with Mary: Reflections, Prayers and Spiritual Practices
Catherine Stewart was not feeling well, but she never dreamed she was suffering from stage 3 colon cancer. With her life suddenly turned upside-down, she turned to Mary and the mysteries of the Rosary for solace and strength. Mary became her cherished companion through the devastating months of treatment. Now in recovery, Stewart shares her story so that we too can make Mary our travel companion through the devastating events of our own lives.
Mary s Yes! to God takes on a new and powerful dimension when applied to the process of being a cancer patient. As Stewart puts it, Mary s journey began in much the same way. She was doing ordinary, routine chores when she suddenly experienced God s presence in a deeper way.
Through these powerful and helpful reflections on the Rosary, including prayers and excellent ideas for journaling, Stewart shows how Mary is ready to walk with every cancer patient, bringing strength, consolation, and joy.
