Praise for Under the Mantle! 
We are living in an extraordinary time of grace and mercy. It is a time in which many people, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, are experiencing a renewed appreciation for the sacred and unchanging truths of Catholicism. Though the vast majority of universities and colleges today indoctrinate their students into the dictatorship of moral relativism, the media puts forth an ideology of rampant secularism, and the political realm is filled with proponents of a culture of death, nevertheless, it is in these times that Jesus, through the Immaculata, is raising up a new generation of Catholics. In Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest, Fr. Calloway masterfully blends together aspects of his own conversion story with profound theological insights into Catholicism, presenting everyone from "Joe six-pack in the pew" to a seminary rector with incredibly vivid and thought-provoking analogies into why it is so important for a Christian to live under the mantle of Mary. I very highly recommend that everyone read this book!

One of the biggest challenges facing Catholics today is the risk of becoming jaded, lukewarm, disillusioned, or unenthused about their Catholic faith. Indeed, not being madly in love with Jesus, Mary, and the Church is an increasing threat in the lives of many today. For this reason, this book could not have come at a better time. In this book Fr. Calloway weaves both his personal conversion story and love for Our Lady with wave after wave of fascinating insights into the Catholic faith, offering the reader ample reasons for rediscovering and falling back in love with the saving mysteries of Catholicism. This book is a must read for all!

Raw, unapologetic, and inspiring! A book that is easily understood, yet delving deep, beyond the litany of filters, and challenging spiritually hungry souls to wake up. A truly unique and extraordinary Marian gem for the New Evangelization. You will be thanked when you pass it on!
