See How She Loves Us by Joan Carroll Cruz: an amazing collection of apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The miracles chronicled within, approved by the local bishops or the Vatican and ranging across 23 countries and two millennia, show Mary’s great love for man, her constant intercession on our behalf, and her role as protector of the Church. Perfect for Catholics and non-Catholics alike, the book sheds light on the many mysteries of the Church and Catholics’ love for the Blessed Mother.
Mary of Nazareth by Fr. Francisco Suarez. The Mother of Jesus Christ, Mary of Nazareth, can appear to be so perfect that she is beyond imitation. In this long-published work, Fr. Suarez sheds light on the hidden life of God’s most perfect creature as someone both possible to understand and to imitate. Her’s was a unique vocation but the way that she responded to it becomes a model for our own response to God’s call.
Maiden and Mother: Prayers, Hymns, Songs and Devotions to Honor the Blessed Virgin Mother – selected and arranged by M.M. Miles. In this inspiring collection, Margaret Miles has drawn together many of the finest Christian devotions in prose and verse, from liturgical and non-liturgical sources. Here, these prayers are brought together in their original language (mainly Latin) or vernacular. The book therefore fills a significant gap in devotional literature.
