Great For Doubters Of Mary's Power on Earth Feb 20, 2008
This is a fabulous book for getting an idea of what Mary does, how she behaves, what causes merit her dramatic intervention, and how devotion to her - fervent devotion in numbers - makes a huge difference.
It is SO clear after reading this book that she is here, she is listening.
In addition to fortifying faith, this book provides extremely entertaining reading! The stories are better than most novels. For example, in Italy she stopped 35,000 violent ruffians and soldiers by telling them to "Get back! This land is mine!" because the women and children of that town had mobbed to the churches to pray for her protection.
Truly spellbinding stories, some scary ones!
Mary has been busier than we know. These are thoroughly witnessed and well-documented miracles that occurred at various Images. If you have ever had your doubts, or know anyone else who has, about Mary's power to intercede with God on our behalf, this book will settle them.
Sign, Wonders and miracles Apr 5, 2007
This book was very exciting and thought provoking. God is alive. The book came in good condition and on time.
A lovely, fascinating book May 14, 2001
This is a truly lovely book. The stories associated with dozens of statues, icons and paintings of the Blessed Virgin Mary are told in a clear, interesting manner. There are quite a few pictures, but I'd love to have seen more color photos. Some of the images such as Our Lady of Perpetual Help are famous, others such as the Madonna Tal-Ghar and Notre Dame de Foy (a copy of which is enshrined in a three at the Shrine of the North American Martyrs at Auriesville, New York) are not so well known. This is the third book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading more!
Review from the Publisher Mar 9, 2001
Another wonderful "collection" book by this popular best-selling author. Here are 100 true stories of approved miraculous statues, paintings and other images of Our Lady from all parts of the globe and spanning almost 2,000 years. Included are images that have spoken, that have brought miraculous cures and other special favors, that have helped in construction of Catholic churches, that have shed luminous rays leading to their discovery in hidden places, that have given off a celestial fragrance, been suspended in mid-air for over 5 centuries, or that have suddenly and unexplainable become extremely heavy so as to resist being moved from a favored place. Also described are images of Our Lady weeping blood and tears, of Our Lady lovingly holding the Infant Jesus, as well as the ornate and costly garments the faithful have created for these dear figures plus the special feast-days in their honor. Ranging across Italy, France, the U.S., Japan, Mexico, etc., the stories shared by Mrs. Cruz tell of the images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Akita, Pompeii, Prompt Succor (New Orleans), Our Lady of the Smile (through which St. Therese the Little Flower was cured at age 10), Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, The Comforter of the Afflicted, The Comforter of the Afflicted, The Madonna of Consolation, Mother of Divine Love, Our Lady of Zapopan (Mexico) and many, many more! Scores of pictures, 33 in full color, make this terrific book come alive. 125 illustrations in all. A great Catholic treasure for every home library! 441pp. PB. Imprimatur.
It would be nice to see them all in person.... May 18, 2000
This is a very interesting and informative collection of historical stories about varying pictures and statues of our Blessed Mother that have exhibited miraculous actions and effects. The history alone is fascinating, and the miracles associated with each icon underscore the beauty and power of our Blessed Mother. Each item is roughly four to five pages in length, which provides plenty of detail without being overly verbose.
