If you loved MacKenzie’s Sonnets for Christ the King, then you’ll rave about its sequel, the Sonnets for the Queen of Heaven. Composed in the grand manner of the English masters, this Mariological tour de force checks off all the boxes: beauty of language, depth of meaning, and Catholic truth. Jam packed with an opening sequence of one sonnet for every title of Mary in the Litany of Loreto, the collection continues with lyrical meditations on the Virgin’s role in the mystery of the Incarnation. A corona of sonnets on the Blessed Virgin’s relation to the Seven Sacraments draws the book to its dramatic climax.
Approved by traditional Catholic clergy for devotional use and literary study in colleges and universities.
