Overview

"On November 27, 1830, Catherine Laboure, a Sister of Charity, saw a remarkable vision of the Blessed Mother. 'She was of medium height and her dress was all white, the whiteness of dawn. A white veil covered her head and fell on either side to her feet. Her face was so beautiful that it seems to me impossible to express her beauty. Her feet rested on a globe . . . There was also a serpent, green in color with yellow spots.'" Thus, begins one of the stories retold in the book, The Visits of a Very Special Lady. From her first visit to her cousin Elizabeth recorded in the Gospel of Luke to the present day, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been reaching out to those who need her help. Throughout the ages there have been many accounts of Marian apparitions. This book focuses on the major visions that occurred in Mexico City, Paris, Lourdes, Knock, Fatima, and Medjugorje. These six places have become popular destinations for pilgrims from all over the world. Miraculous healings have been documented at these sites. But what really happened there? The stories behind these apparitions and the people who witnessed them have been passed down through the years. On the pages of this book, the accounts of the events are retold in simple language, in many cases in the words of the visionaries themselves, making the stories appealing to people of all ages. In each of these apparitions or visits, a message or messages were given to those who witnessed the vision. The predictions, the words of warning and admonition, the deeper meanings behind the messages, and the directives given to the visionaries so that they may be spread to the entire world are explored in The Visits of a Very Special Lady.
