Summary
A moving and inspiring meditation on the author's rediscovery of and love for Mary, the mother of Jesus. "I must admit," he writes, "that my relations with Mary were somewhat marred by the romanticism of the type of Marian devotion that was all the rage before the Vatican Council and which gradually became empty of meaning. She is, after all, the mother of God and has no need of recommendation to be esteemed." His own renewal of devotion began during his long period in the desert, living among the Little Brothers of Charles de Foucauld. The fate of one particular Tuareg girl, killed because she was discovered to be pregnant before her marriage, opened his eyes to the real life that Mary lived in Nazareth, where she was the subject of neighbours' puritanical scrutiny. Carretto follows her as, with exhaustion in her heart, she visited her cousin Elizabeth, for it was Elizabeth who said to her after hearing her relate her story, "Blessed are you who believed."
