Item description for A Child Shall Lead Them: Stories of Transformed Young Lives in Medjugorje by Wayne Weible...
Overview Captures a collection of stories and anecdotes of conversions through nearly twenty-four years of daily appearances by the Blessed Virgin Mary to six children in the village of Medjugorje. Original.
Publishers Description In the village of Medjugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovina, six teenagers - two boys and four girls - began to report seeing visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the summer of 1981. Since then, millions of people have made pilgrimages to this remote mountain village, where the messages of Mary give hope and comfort to those who are needy, suffering, or searching. "After nearly 24 years of daily appearances to these children - all of whom are now adults, married and with children of their own - the fruits of conversion continue to serve as a testament to their initial claim," writes Weible. "Not surprisingly, the most dramatic of these conversions are those of young people, beginning with the visionaries themselves." "A Child Shall Lead Them" is a collection of such stories and anecdotes from Medjugorje. They cover a full range of emotions, trials, and miracles; from heartbreak to intense happiness. In all of them there is solid proof of what happens when a heart is converted to that of a child: a return to innocence, and an openness and receptivity to faith. Each chapter ends with a monthly message given by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Medjugorje. Click here to listen to an interview with Wayne Weible

Good addition to Weible Catalog Aug 7, 2006
I read this latest book after finishing Medjugorje the Mission, also by Wayne Weible. Medjugorje the Mission was written in 1994. There is some continuation of the story about his family and its crusade against abortion, but the focus in this latest book is with young peoples' stories, not Wayne's own mission. As such, it is a wonderful and inspirational read and shows the value of the Medjugorje messages for conversion of everyone, no matter their age or circumstance.The book's format is tastefully done, with a chapter heading, story and at the end a message from Our Lady that has a connection to the story for the reader's personal meditation. Unlike the review from Publishers Weekly, I did not find the book syrupy, but do affirm its claim to help us regain our child-like innocence. When one has a pure heart they can hear God better and respond more fully to Our Lady's messages. In this world that is bent on corrupting everyone's innocence, this book is an antidote to the cynicism that occurs every day through the media and in interpersonal relationships.
