I picked this book up on a whim years ago. I scoffed at most books dealing with Catholicism, but was intrigued enough to give it a try. As a child I had a deep devotion to Mary. I still do. The Virgin Mary is my strongest hold over from Roman Catholic upbringing. Connell's book on Mary helped to deepen this devotion, and brought into focus why I have such a love for Mary.

Connell goes into great detail on Maryology and discussing Marian apparitions. She also explains why we pray with Mary. A gre

The book reinvigorated my Christian faith and that of several of my relatives. I would say it can be life-changing! Janice Connell must be divinely guided when she writes.

I initially borrowed it from a friend who is devout, just to learn about Lourdes, and wound up buying my own copy.

A book that moves a reader to change for the better is a top shelfer. I know this will be a future re-read as well...I was sad to see this 300+ pager end.
Visions of the Blessed Mother--Good reference

A book of mostly unapproved Marian apparitions (poorly) written by someone without a background in theology, trying ride the wave of hype from medjugorie in the mid 90s. There are much better books about Our Lady.

I read this book about every 2 weeks, just a chapter or 2, makes me feel good.
A book that says on my bed stand.
