The Constant Procession is a book, a personal memoir about the history of the Virgin Mary or the Madonna since she passed on.

The book runs from Episode 1-49 in contiguous installments that run around 7 minutes in length each. Podcast updates are published every Tuesday morning and read by me, Nikos Steves, the author.
