Riassunto: Shrines of Our Lady is a book of deeply spiritual splendor, and a lavishly illustrated guide to the most famous Marian shrines around the world. Peter Mullen presents each shrine's miraculous beginnings in this book, and also recounts the fascinating history of each site, as well as the elaborate events and celebrations that are part of the religious life of the shrine today. Peter Mullen also examines the rich tradition and symbolism of the Marian phenomenon, and reproduces paintings, poems, hymns, prayers, and extracts from literature, which reflect the Virgin Mary's special place in our hearts.
As Janice T. Connell explains in her introduction, "In these times, as never before in history, Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, is manifesting herself to people all over the world. Her apparitions are a magnificent gift of Heaven's graciousness."
In this beautiful guide, with practical information for visitors, Peter Mullen explores these places where Heaven has truly touched Earth. Fifty of the best-loved and most visited shrines are featured in detail, including: Fostoria, Ohio; New Orleans; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Washington, D.C.; as well as the famous shrines in Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje, Great Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Israel, Italy, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Mexico, and other nations throughout the world.
