When you write from what you have experienced, you produce a compelling and relevant book. This is true of author Catherine Stewart who wrote Facing Cancer With Mary Reflections, prayers and spiritual practices. In her book she writes of getting an unexpected diagnosis of cancer, her following surgery and her recovery. Using the Mysteries of the Rosary, Stewart walked with Mary through these difficult times in her life. Hoping to help others deal and cope with the experience of cancer, Stewart shares her experience of turning to Mary for guidance and help.

In Facing Cancer With Mary, for each mystery of the Rosary Stewart presents a reflection on the mystery, a prayer related to the reflection and a suggestion for journaling or a spiritual practice to help make the reflection on the mystery personal to the reader. For instance, for the first Joyful Mystery, the Annunciation, Stewart reflects on saying yes when she talks about "saying the first yes of many yeses to follow". How did saying "yes" to God through the angel Gabriel change Mary's life and what could she, Stewart, learn from this? Through these practices, Stewart shows how "Mary is ready to walk with every cancer patient, bringing strength, consolation, and joy".
