Acknowledgements

This is the third revision of my treatise on Mary and I wish to recognize by name some of the many people who have been invaluable to me in correcting and arranging this monograph of Mary into its present form.

First, thank you to my dearly departed wife, Lilian for her many proof readings of this treatise and to her and my six children who patiently sat by as I was absorbed for many hours seated in front of my computer rather than being with them. I want to thank several other family members and friends who proof read various versions of my manuscript; my sisters, Ave Maria, Ann Sharon and Rachel, the secretary from my office, Betty Sousae and friends Phil Guindon, Vernon Robertson, and Joseph Witek. Joe suggested I include a consecration to Mary. I want to thank Fr. Boniface Acher, O.S.B. for his encouragement, his proof reading and his suggestion of the chapter format that appears in the second edition. Finally, I wish to thank a man in a federal prison, Dwight Pichette, who helped proof read this final edition and seemed inspired by the content, which was an additional encouragement to finish this book.
