"For a road can be traveled in either direction. Christ is the road by which we come to the Father, to participation in the life of the Blessed Trinity; but also we can think of Him as the road by which the Father comes to us. We can think of ourselves as drawing near to God in His Beloved Son: I love to think the other way of the road, of God drawing near to me, of God pouring of His riches into human life and elevating that life to His very Self." -J. G. H. Barry

"'The Preacher' tells us that 'of making books there is no end,' and no doubt were he on the earth today he would reiterate his observation with emphasis. Be that as it may, books of the kind written by the rector of St. Mary the Virgin, New York City, are decidedly limited in number. In 'Our Lady Saint Mary,' the author continues that high level of spiritual acumen, sound scholarship, and graceful literary expression which has characterized his work in the past....Each incident is considered with Dr. Barry's own creative imagination and reverent restraint. All the real vital questions of the religious, moral, and social life of today are dealt with in direct relation to the life of Jesus and His blessed Mother. The observance of Sunday, prohibition, personal purity, family life, etc., are touched upon, some incidentally, others more or less at length but all fearlessly and with a keen perception of the issues involved. And yet these moral and social problems are always answered only in their relation to the spiritual life. It is because of Dr. Barry's sure grasp of the ends and aims of the spiritual life that we can trust him so implicitly with other problems. Religion is a life, a life of union with our Incarnate Lord, a life which is imparted to us through His Catholic Church....To grasp the spiritual life as presented by Dr. Barry gives a glow and a purpose to living which makes all other human objectives seem but paltry and trifling....We may well be proud that this most valuable contribution of our time to the subject, appealing as it does to all English-speaking Catholics, should be the work of a priest and doctor of our own Communion." -The New American Church Monthly
