The Order of Crowning an Image of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a new edition of the crowning rite that offers three
ways in which this popular ritual may take place: (1) within Mass; (2)
within liturgical Evening Prayer; and (3) within a celebration of the
Word of God. The texts of the rites are printed in two colors and are
preceded by an introduction containing an informative Vatican decree
that sets this popular custom within its historical context and
emphasizing the significance of Mary as mother of the Savior. The Order
of Crowning an Image of the Blessed Virgin Mary is durably bound in an attractive blue cloth cover.
