Thanks for posting this. As a new Catholic/recovering Protestant I know I need to learn more about Marian devotion—I just wasn’t raised to understand this. When I get a job I’ll be sure to buy this book.

As a new Catholic/recovering Protestant I know I need to learn more about Marian devotion
It can be a challenge even for some of us cradle Catholics. I am reading a 'hot' book right now.
A Book That You Will Read More Than Once - You have my word! I COULD NOT put it down. It kept my interest from beginning to end... Do yourself a favor and get this book. I promise you will not be disappointed.
--Fr. Neil Buchlein, Pastor of Ascension Catholic Church in Hurricane, West Virginia, and host of an Internet blog at blessedmotherschildren.com
A Real Page-Turner! This book needs to be read by every Catholic. It will inspire you! I cannot praise it enough.
--David T. Little, President, World St. Thomas More Society
His Eminence Ricardo J. Cardinal Vidal, Archbishop of Cebu, Philippines, has granted the Church's Imprimatur, rarely given to books on prophecy, to this book. As an expert on Marian teaching and prophecy in the Catholic Church, Cardinal Vidal was uniquely qualified to have reviewed and approved this book as being without error in faith and morals.
--Special Church Recognition
Why is the world in so much turmoil today? What is going to happen in the near future? Are we living in the time of the Apocalypse? What is Heaven saying to us about our times? This book explains the big picture of the prophetic times in which we live and the apocalyptic times to come in the near future. An easily readable, well-researched, and inspiring book about the heavenly plan to bring peace to the world, this book uses solid sources like the Bible, the church s teachings, and heavenly prophecies to detail the coming times of the Apocalypse. As you turn each page with increasing hope, you will experience greater insight into God's urgent plan to bring his message to humanity while there is still time. You will find yourself referring to this book time and time again.
The author lists several of the many marian apparitions. Not sure why he left out the one at Zeitoun Egypt.
The book is quite interesting however. You may want to add it to your reading list.

("Where Peter is, there is the Church." - St. Ambrose of Milan)
Welcome with great joy to the faith.
I understand the difficulty with Marian devotion that most protestants have with the Catholic church...I have discovered that is is terminology and of tunnel vision.
A little meditation will take you a long distance to understanding why we hold Mary in such a position of reverence.
” The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us”.
Jesus, the word , took up earthly residence in the body of Mary to be en-fleshed. He was blood of her blood and flesh of her flesh.
Think of Mary being suffused with the Word of God every moment, every breath and every heart beat for 9 months.
This is why Mary is the role model for Catholic’s... we wish to be suffused with “The word of God” every moment of our lives and Mary is the example that it can be done.
It takes great humility, great submission, great openness.
We diminish as He increases.

It’s not about Mary. It’s not about being Catholic. It’s not about being Protestant. It’s about Jesus. Whether you hold to the Roman Catholic faith or simply to Jesus.
