Reviews - What do customers think about Apparitions of Modern Saints : Appearances of Therese of Lisieux, Padre Pio, Don Bosco, and Others?
Delightful and Insightful Apr 22, 2008
Patricia Treece delineates early on the difference between ghost sightings and the apparition of saints.
Without slipping into sloppy new-agey goo, Treece explains how your passed-on relatives might be saints and how they may be assisting you throughout your life.
Unless you work in the Vatican and are privy to contemporary apparition archives, the thrilling details about human interaction with saints in modern times will surprise you.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Jesus, heaven, ghosts, saints, near-death experiences and spiritual healing.
Apparitions of Modern Day Saints Mar 21, 2008
Fascinating book. she does a great job of giving background and helpful information in the introduction regarding the difference between ghosts, demons, various spiritual phenomena. the Chapters themselves give live accounts of apparitions of various saints throughout this past 100 years. all accounts are well documented and researched. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking at trying to understand apparitions and appearances of the spiritual.
What a BOOK! Jun 21, 2007
The title is misleading and it's a shame because this is a jewel of a book loaded with documentation and stories you won't find elsewhere. She did her homework.
I was amazed that the Catholic church had kept such precise documentation the past 2000 years. Picky picky picky. It was not confined to their records but they've kept the lion's share.
This is a book about people who have died (good) showing up to individuals (usually good), often after someone has prayed to ask their help. I've been praying a long time and it never occurred to me that someone might.... show up!
And they say that "God sent them" so you don't ask them to do the job, you ask them to pray for you and influence God. The church didn't make that up. They learned it from the people who have visited!
You know what this means, don't you... it means that if our relatives were good and made it to heaven they can hear us. But they don't have as much clout as some of the holy saints. There is a whole theology about this based on tons and tons of evidence collected over 2000 years. Try to beat that. I'm shocked at myself for doubting them for so long.
This is a good book to read if you're trying to figure things out... if you've read The Secret for example and find it lacking. This will, frankly, knock your socks off!
I recommended it for boosting your faith that your prayers are being heard. (Whoa!)
Overcome Doubt Sep 11, 2002
Many Christians find themselves doubting just when they least want to, i.e. during tragic times. Nothing could help you more than reading about these authenticated researched apparitions of the saints to those on earth. Since Treece is a journalist, her approach is not sentimental but hard as a rock, exactly as you want your faith to be. Delightfully written, you will enjoy and be inspired by these accounts.
