A New Book from Our Parishioner - Douglas Egbuonu

Vatican II on Mary: The Case for the Definition of the Spiritual Motherhood of Mary is a newly published theological treatise on Mary written by Douglas N. Egbuonu, a member of our own SMQ parish.
A product of his postgraduate studies at the University of Bristol. It is a challenging, interesting and an important work for evaluating the role of Mary  on the Church.



Two years ago, after 37 years of chronic ill-health and having survived a brain haemorrhage, I picked up the phone and called a complete stranger and asked, "Am I too ill to go to Lourdes?" Deacon David Wakefield replied, "No, Mary is calling you." And thus the journey that changed my life forever began.

I told my sons, who are in their 20s, that I was going to the south of France for a week and they replied,"mum you've been in Bristol eight months and you haven't made it the 3 miles to the Harbourside." I told them Blessed Pope John Paul II has gone to Lourdes a year before he died and the answer I got was, well, he had an entourage. I said yes Tom, and so do I!
