Item description for Meetings with Mary by Janice T. Connell...
Overview Presents a collection of authenticated visions of and messages from the Virgin Mary, drawn from Scripture, legend, and contemporary accounts
Publishers Description Through the centuries and across the world, the Virgin Mary has appeared to ordinary people of every race and culture, from scholars to illiterates, from the devout to the unbelieving, from young children to the dying. In this exquisite and inspiring volume, Janice T. Connell chronicles authenticated Marian apparitions and messages Mary has brought from God--as mother, comforter, Queen of Angels, and Prophet of the Apocalypse. Drawn from scripture, legend, and never-before-published eyewitness accounts, these are personal stories--the author's own, and her interviews with other visionaries--filled with beauty, wonder, and joy. Meetings with Mary ranges from Elijah's vision of Mary eight hundred years before her birth to the world-famous children of Medjugorje in Bosnia, whose encounters with her began in 1981 and continue daily. Here also are lesser-known, deeply touching encounters with the Mother, from an office worker in Holland to a Japanese nun, from a Jewish banker in Rome to an awestruck crowd of visionaries, few of them Christians or of any other faith, in Egypt. Meetings with Mary asks also: as the millennium draws near, shadowed by disasters, disease, and brutal civil warfare, are Mary's frequent appearances a signal to the faithful? Perhaps she is calling us all to join her now on a voyage toward the eternal shores of peace, joy, and abiding love. . . . "[Connell is] passionate about prayer and sharing her love of Jesus' mother. . . . She has a way of simplifying complex theology." --Rocky Mountain News

Heavenly messages Feb 8, 2008
Meetings with Mary: Visions of The Blessed Mother, by Janice T. Connell, is a wonderful collection of documented appearances of our Blessed Mother to saint and sinner alike. It is wonderfully written and each chapter draws you in as you realize the true importance of The Mother of Jesus, in God's divine plan. This is a must read for people of all faiths, because just as The Father loves us all equally, so does the Virgin Mother. She calls all of her Son's children to pray, fast, and draw closer to God. This book will not disappoint!
Meetings with Mary Aug 23, 2007
Great book! Ms. Connell has written another very insightful, thought provoking and spiritual book. I will read anything she writes.
This is a MUST read. Jun 9, 2007
I purchased this book because I was very interested to read about the apparitions people have had of the Blessed Virgin. This book starts with apparitions from ancient times with Elijah, goes through the middle ages and Victorian age, all the way to the 1990s. I greatly enjoyed reading about Fatima, Lourdes, and Medjugorje. Medjugorje is fascinating and should be taken very seriously!...all the messages given to the visionaries should be taken to heart. It is so interesting how the Blessed Mother speaks to her children and gives them messages of love and guidance. She strongly encourages us to live in love and to PRAY!
I also do a lot of reading on near death experiences, and I was fascinated with how the description of the afterlife given by NDEers matches that given by Our Lady Mary. That was most interesting.
This was a very good book, I read it in two days, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is needing spiritual guidance, to anyone who adores Our Mother, and to anyone who wants to be guided by Her grace and love.
Great for those who believe Apr 11, 2007
This book is only for those who believe in the risen LORD and the assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mother. The book is full, page after page, of documentation of actual messages and visions of the Holy Mother to people who are in a "State of Grace" or have allowed the Blessed Mother to be of upmost importance in there lives.
Outstanding Jul 10, 2006
This is a great book and an easy read. It was the reading of this book back in 2005 that lead me to Medjugorje Bosnia for two weeks (May 2006)
