5.0 out of 5 stars Review from the Publisher 8 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Another wonderful "collection" book by this popular best-selling author. Here are 100 true stories of approved miraculous statues, paintings and other images of Our Lady from all parts of the globe and spanning almost 2,000 years. Included are images that have spoken, that have brought miraculous cures and other special favors, that have helped in construction of Catholic churches, that have shed luminous rays leading to their discovery in hidden places, that have given off a celestial fragrance, been suspended in mid-air for over 5 centuries, or that have suddenly and unexplainable become extremely heavy so as to resist being moved from a favored place. Also described are images of Our Lady weeping blood and tears, of Our Lady lovingly holding the Infant Jesus, as well as the ornate and costly garments the faithful have created for these dear figures plus the special feast-days in their honor. Ranging across Italy, France, the U.S., Japan, Mexico, etc., the stories shared by Mrs. Cruz tell of the images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Akita, Pompeii, Prompt Succor (New Orleans), Our Lady of the Smile (through which St. Therese the Little Flower was cured at age 10), Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, The Comforter of the Afflicted, The Comforter of the Afflicted, The Madonna of Consolation, Mother of Divine Love, Our Lady of Zapopan (Mexico) and many, many more! Scores of pictures, 33 in full color, make this terrific book come alive. 125 illustrations in all. A great Catholic treasure for every home library! 441pp. PB. Imprimatur.

4.0 out of 5 stars It would be nice to see them all in person.... 17 May 2000
By Cary A. Cusumano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a very interesting and informative collection of historical stories about varying pictures and statues of our Blessed Mother that have exhibited miraculous actions and effects. The history alone is fascinating, and the miracles associated with each icon underscore the beauty and power of our Blessed Mother. Each item is roughly four to five pages in length, which provides plenty of detail without being overly verbose.

5.0 out of 5 stars indispensable inspiration 18 Feb 2011
By big reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is Joan Carroll Cruz at her best - she collect wonderful and extremely fascinating histories of miraculous images of the Blessed Virgin, and then organizes them by country. Like most of her books, it is possible to focus on several of the most inspiring and to really make these a part of your life. It is wonderfully inspiring to see how God has worked throughout the ages, and to recognize that as Catholics we are part of a 1.2 billion member family, and that all around the world people believe as we do. It is easy to forget this with the stresses and distractions of the world, the flesh and the devil.

One exercise that I liked to do is to read through and appreciate the fascinating images and stories while playing the Rosary in the background. After about half an hour to an hour of this my mind is spiritually attuned, I am physically recharged and refreshed, and above all I am reminded that I am a child of God, as are hundreds of millions around the earth, and that God has constructed this earth as a master craftsman. When one reads of the images in various European and Latin American nations, it is a powerful reminder of how God has worked in each era to safeguard his Church, and how often this was through the Blessed Virgin.

The book is readable, inspirational, and devotional. It is a great addition to any home or household.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely, fascinating book 14 May 2001
By PaulaAnne SharkeyLemire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a truly lovely book. The stories associated with dozens of statues, icons and paintings of the Blessed Virgin Mary are told in a clear, interesting manner. There are quite a few pictures, but I'd love to have seen more color photos. Some of the images such as Our Lady of Perpetual Help are famous, others such as the Madonna Tal-Ghar and Notre Dame de Foy (a copy of which is enshrined in a three at the Shrine of the North American Martyrs at Auriesville, New York) are not so well known. This is the third book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading more!
5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of quality color images with reference to what they represent. 21 July 2014

Format:Paperback
So many pictures. I didn't realize how many different titles and stories were out there concerning Our Lady. I wasn't disappointed at all with this purchase. So glad to have it as a reference.
