James Martin, with regard to Fr. Bill’s book, Mother of God, Similar to Fire, “Father McNichols invites us into the presence of the great model of contemplation, she who ‘treasured’ God in her heart, and brought him into the world. Open this book and allow these icons to open your eyes to our patron and our companion: Mary, the Mother of God.”
