The Life of Mary As Seen by the Mystics is a compilation by Raphael Brown of the journals of four Catholic saints who were also mystics. These saints all lived in different times ranging from the 12th century to the 19th century, yet all recorded similar visions of Our Lady. Combined their holy diaries read like a wonderful story that begins with the lives of St. Anne and St. Joachim, Mary’s parents, and continues through the death and Assumption of the Blessed Mother.

Quite an interesting concept the author Raphael Brown did in bringing together four nuns special meditations about the life of Mother Mary, into a format of a novel. It brings the reader on the journey, which brings out the miracle of Jesus through the eyes of Mary, his mother. Many know about the conception of Our Lord, but the birth in scripture does not go into details, but this book shares about the miracle birth and the deep love Mary had for her son Jesus, the Lamb of God.

Reads like a novel. Explains the life of Mary after she is chosen to be the mother of God. The Author adds explanations that take away the mystery of the biblical documentation of Mary.

Really enjoyed the book. One of the more inspiring spiritual reads I've come across in a while. Very touching to hear the descriptions of the love of the holy family and wonderful meditation on the relationship between Jesus and his mother.

If you have read other revelations before it may seem a bit all over the place but it does provide you with some jumping off points to all the various revelations you can seek out to read more in detail.

Fantastic insight into the generation of Jesus, as viewed from His mother.
I thought it was sophomoric. It was written like a child's bedtime storybook. I expected it to be more thought provoking. It was required reading as a prerequisite to a study on Mary that begins next month. It will be interesting to hear the others opinions. I would rate it like a novel, not a study guide.
