ALETEIA: Judy Landrieu Klein's Review of The Marian Option
Why "the Marian Option" is not an Option Today
Playing off of theme of 'The Benedict Option,' the author suggests an even more fundamental solution for post-Christian civilization.
Dr. Carrie Gress’ brand new book, The Marian Option: God’s Solution to a Civilization in Crisis, ably proves why “the Marian Option” is not optional today. Gress’ thesis consists in demonstrating that when the world and the Church teeter on the precipice of disaster, as they seem to be doing now, God wills to send needed aide through the Blessed Mother. As Gress substantiates through a fascinating survey of historical facts, Mary’s help has come swiftly and miraculously time and time again. And, oh, how we need her assistance now.
