Mary has been called by many names with Caryll Houselander, the author of this book calling her The Reed of God which is also the title of her book. "Caryll Houselander depicts the intimately human side of Mary, Mother of God, as an empty reed waiting for God's music to be played through her." The Reed of God is a much acclaimed older book which is considered relevant today by many scripture writers because of the wisdom about Mary presented in the book which was written before Vatican II which is relevant even today. Through a series of meditations, Houselander encourages us to follow the example of Mary in trying to find the will of God in our lives. Mary has always been praised as a wonderful example of submitting to the will of God and in The Reed of God we are exposed to meditations on how she did this and how we can follow in her footsteps. The journey of Mary through life is the same journey we experience and this 187 page paperback shows us how Mary handled everyday occurrences and encourages us to handle them in a similar manner.
