It [In the Arms of Mary] is a faithful companion piece to The Gift of Faith, the widely acclaimed treatise on spirituality by Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer. Indeed, the author, Slawomir Biela, reminds us that our deepest longing for God's precious gifts of unconditional love and inner security cannot be fulfilled unless we continually renew our efforts to discover the spiritual truth about ourselves through prayer. More importantly, God calls us to acknowledge who we really are--gradually to come to grips with various defense mechanisms and pretenses of our old self--without being afraid of His rejection or judgment, thus ripening within us the awareness that Divine Love, God's Merciful Love, overcomes everything.
--Cardinal Theodore McCarrick
Archbishop of Washington

In the Arms of Mary is a lucid, straightforward and profound book. In it the author examines step-by-step some elements of the road to holiness: prayer, its models, how to approach it through the ways of the Gospel. . . . Mary is the indispensable aid and model on our journey through the darkness of faith until we come to live totally united with the will of the Father.
--Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera
Archbishop Primate of Mexico

The reader has in his/her hands a deep book of spirituality. It [In the Arms of Mary] is of the most genuine Christian spirituality, because it reflects the works of the great doctors of the Church: St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross and St. Thérèse of Lisieux....It shows the different stages of interior life, and for this reason it becomes accessible for those who are at the beginning of the way as well as for those who have advanced deeper along the way of transforming union....
--Cardinal Ricard Maria Carles Gordo
Archbishop of Barcelona

In the midst of confusion in today's world, we see souls desirous of serving God. So many people wondering what else they can do to offer themselves to God and to others. It is in this context that we can truly appreciate Slawomir Biela's book.
--Cardinal Jaime L. Sin, DD
Archbishop of Manila

“The book In the Arms of Mary is a wonderful catechesis showing us the way that allows us to come back to God through the hands of Blessed Mother. She always reminds us that we are beloved children of God, the Father full of goodness, who loves us with an infinite love that is above all evil. This book is an immense and very providential gift for today's men and women who need to be reminded of being God's children. The meditative reading of this book, especially by parents, teachers and catechists of our communities will help in the difficult task of forming human will. Formation of the will is an indispensable condition to respond to God’s grace and to fulfill His will. We have to accept God's commandments. It’s not a matter of knowing them or keeping them in our memory, but rather putting them into practice in our life. I trustfully ask the Lord that pondering upon the truths reminded by the author will help many to experience the authentic freedom of God's children.” (Excerpt from the foreword to the African edition.)
-- Cardinal Adam Kozłowiecki, S.J.
Former Archbishop of Lusaka

“Spiritual life in its fullness is the work of grace. As time goes on, a person experiences an ever greater need for supernatural help and it is here that Mary has a very special role to play. She becomes all the more vital and so very much closer. To entrust in love is to also entrust in Mary; to allow her to form us, to live in her arms, to experience particular help from her. Sławomir Biela must know these truths exceedingly well because he points to her with such great fervor and conviction and with complete harmony with the Marian tradition of the Church, as a specific remedy for that which is difficult or even impossible to overcome on a person's way to union with God. It is this kind of witness that we need today so that we may truly be able to become a leaven for New Evangelization.” (Excerpt from the foreword to the Ukrainian edition.)
-- Cardinal Marian Jaworski
Archbishop Metropolitan of Lviv

"It [In the Arms of Mary] takes on the form of short meditations that enrich the reader with the means for deepening spiritual life and prompts him to be more involved in the New Evangelization. Therefore, I recommend this book to all who desire to help improve our situation and mission."
-- Cardinal Miloslav Vlk
Archbishop of Praha (Prague) and Primate of Czechoslovakia

"Slawomir Biela touches upon the essential elements of spiritual life and reaches out towards the spiritual needs of today's men and women, who are in search of specific directions in their life of prayer and journey to God" (Excerpt from the Canadian edition.)
--Most Rev. Thomas Collins
Archbishop of Edmonton

"I just wanted you to know that my mother told me that the book In the Arms of Mary that we gave her for Christmas was the best present she's ever received."
--Mary Kilian
Account Executive, Catholic Online

In the Arms of Mary has helped me to see struggles and sufferings as blessings from our Lord. Without them, I might not be able to recognize my own limitations and sinfulness in order to abandon myself at the feet of the Lord. I pray that we all may be able to fall into the arms of Mary and implore her to present us as precious gifts to the Father!”
--Ali Mainelli
Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) Missionary

“I ordered In the Arms of Mary by S. C. Biela. I love that book! I give away copies as gifts. I do tons of public speaking and often use quotes from the book in my talks on abortion...”
--Theresa Bonopartis
Program coordinator for Lumina, a post-abortion referral service (; Co-founder of Reeclaiming Our Children; former Respect Life coordinator for the Archdiocese of New York.

”I have read and re-read In the Arms of Mary, usually taking just a paragraph or two at a time for reflection. Sometimes the suggestion of such total abandonment to God seemed too radical to me. What I realized, however, is that the call to holiness I was receiving through a new look at some familiar scripture passages meant I had to be truthful about how much I wanted to be in control of my life. Now I see how much easier it is to stay snug in the arms of Mary, the mother of all the disciples that Jesus loves so much. In this way, I am closer to Jesus now more than ever.”
--M. L. Curtis
Oregon State Animator, Families of Nazareth Movement

"I am presently reading In the Arms of Mary. It is a marvelous book."
