The simple, direct and clear writing and layout of Vincenzina Krymow's documentation and elucidation of Marian flower symbolism and its history; of Brother Joseph Barrish's flower illustrations; and of Sister M. Jean Frisk's flower meditations have a spiritually unctioned quality which presents and inspires Marian veneration, devotion and prayerful recourse with a new freshness and vitality. After dipping into the book, one emerges with the sense of grace experienced after a spiritual retreat. Mary's Flowers is not a book to be read once through for information and idea development, but one to be visited, savored and re-visited again and again, prayerfully - as with a Medieval Book of Hours. Mary's Flowers, Gardens, Legends, and Meditations by Vincenzina Krymow, with illustrations by A. Joseph Barrish, S.M. and meditations by M. Jean Frisk - October 1999, St. Anthony Messenger Press, Cincinnati, and Novalis, Toronto, 192 pages, 55 color illustrations.
