Through beautiful prose and inspiring meditations, 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. Lovingly bringing Our Lady down off her time-honored, ancient pedestal, Houselander shares her insightful and beautiful vision of Mary on earth, Mary among us, Mary as a confused but trusting teenager whose holiness flowered with her eternal Yes. With profound theological teachings and appealing imagery, The Reed of God is a spiritual classic.

Listener Opinions

    " Beautiful, lucid, warm and thought-provoking. Also, a wonderful sort of mysticism for theological neophytes, the kind (like me, ha!) who struggle to comprehend even a sentence of St Teresa of Avila. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philomena Sulzen | 9/10/2013

    " The most beautiful book on our Lady ever! A great preparationfor Chirstmas "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 9/7/2013

    " A great dedication to the lives of Mary and Jesus. Her exhortations are extremely Catholic in language, written with obvious joy and love for the subject. Only there was nothing in this book that I believe will make it stand out. It's a great love story but it wont stick with you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin Stamm | 7/5/2013

    " I absolutely loved this; it completely solidified how I thought about Mary and expanded my understanding of her faith and importance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/16/2013

    " I love this little pocket book. For years I have heard about how wonderful it is from some friends of mine, but I had never taken the time to read it. Short and succinct, it is easy to pick up at any time. The best thing about it? It draws you closer to God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 5/4/2013

    " I just came across this book at just the right time spiritually. I devoured it and even carried it around in my purse for awhile in case I found myself with a spare moment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat Gohn | 11/26/2012

    " One of my all-time favorite books on Mary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Tilton | 7/31/2012

    " This is the first book by Caryll Houselander that I've read. I have always heard that her books are excellent. This book is a case in point. Caryll speaks eloquently about our Blessed Mother's role and provides great insight to her readers about "seeking the lost Child." A definite "must read." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 3/21/2012

    " Tremendously beautiful, moving book. Everyone should read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marjorie Campbell | 9/1/2011

    " For anyone interested in mystical, feminine spiritual - from the vantage point of a reverted Catholic, this is a must read. I visit and revisit my marked up copy of this book. "

    " Beautifully written. Emotive but clear. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 booklady | 3/3/2011

    " AMAZING! BEAUTIFUL! Reads like poetry! This is what I'm picking up when I can't take any more of Luther...

    Have put ALL the rest of her works on my wishlist--as money and time permit. "
