Christmas: In search of Mary

Alison Hilliard grew up a Protestant in Ian Paisley’s Northern Ireland, where any devotion to Mary was scorned; Mark Dowd is a cradle Catholic and former friar; and Remona Aly is a Muslim who loves Christmas, but approaches Mary very much from a Qur’anic perspective.

These three very different people went on pilgrimage together to experience the mother of the Christ child. Their destination was Walsingham in North Norfolk, “England’s Nazareth” and its most important shrine to Mary.
