Eight Great Appearances of Our Lady in Modern Times
Through the centuries, Our Blessed Lady has appeared frequently on Earth with messages of warning, hope, and consolation. A "Woman Clothed with the Sun" considers the eight most significant apparitions of Mary: that of the Miraculous Medal at Paris, those at La Salette, Lourdes, Knock, Fatima, Beauraing, Banneux -- and also the sixteenth-century appearance of Mary at Guadalupe, with its profound message for Americans. The historical background of each apparition is given, the vision itself described, and Mary's messages are quoted by writers distinguished for their special knowledge of the apparitions and their literary excellence. In his introductory chapter, editor John J. Delaney traces the relationships among the apparitions and provides a penetrating analysis of their significance.
