An Antidote To Humiliation, Helplessness, Despair Mar 21, 2006
Having yet another bad day? Well, instead of relying upon a glass of wine (or something stronger) to take the sting out of it all - I can't recommend any book more encouraging, enlightening, & uplifting while leaving one securely back in the pocket of faith, hope and courage. You don't have to be Catholic to appreciate the enormous work and information in this book or to benefit from its gifts. All one might need is to be open and flexible with a splash of humility that perhaps...you, me and everyone else (no matter their race, religion, class, socio-economic status, education, gender & culture) - *do not* have "the answer" (and probably never will) to the profound mysteries of life. Joan Cruz is on target here in trying to convey this message as well as keeping us company along the way.
Poor organization Jun 30, 2003
The book contains wonderful information, but it is organized so poorly! The books lists information by miracle type, and then lists the saints that performed that particular miracle. The book would be much better if it was the other way around: List the saints, and then the miracles that those saints performed.
A MUST READ! Apr 4, 2000
If you need to update your bookshelf but don't want to buy several books on Saints, buy this great book or if you are interested in the Saints and miracles God worked through them - also buy this wonderful book! It will keep you reading through the wee hours!
Beyond belief...but true Mar 26, 1999
One of the most amazing Catholic books of the century. Includes hundreds of true stories of miraculous phenomena in the lives of the Saints: bilocation, levitation, multiplication of food, etc. A tremendous contribution to Catholic literature and a wonderful asset to the Catholic world! (Publisher)
