Overview

The Virgin Mary inspires intense religious devotion throughout the Catholic world. In her 350 official incarnations-among them Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Lourdes, and The Mother of Sorrows-Mary brings a feminine face to worship, and serves as a conduit for the redemption of humanity. This beautiful and timeless book by the authors of the Abrams title Holy Cards explores Mary's many visionary appearances throughout history and their significance, and examines the iconography surrounding the most famous of these visions.

Catholics honor the woman they venerate as the Mother of God through special novena prayers. The Marian prayer cards displayed here, along with other examples of vernacular art illustrating Mary's various appearances, form an exquisite but accessible treasury of the many facets of the Holy Mother. With its radiantly illustrated iconography; its eternal theme; and its rare collection of holy cards, Visions of Mary should inspire believers and all those interested in art and religious iconography.

Author Bio: Barbara Calamari is a freelance writer who has worked in film and television. Sandra DiPasqua is a graphic designer and art director. The two have collaborated on four previous books for a Catholic audience: Novena: The Power of Prayer, Holy Places: Sacred Sites in Catholicism, Our Lady of Guadalupe in a Box, and the Abrams book Holy Cards. They both live in New York City.

    Mary, Mother of God

    This is a wonderful book about Mary, the Mother of God. Through many beautiful illustrations, the Mother of God comes to life. Anyone interested in learning more about the Mother of God should read this book. It is very inspirational as well as informative!

    Breathtakingly Beautiful!

    Abondanza! Barbara Calamari and Sandra DiPasqua have once again knocked me off my feet with their beautiful book. The photographs and artwork are breathtaking and Ms. Calamari's writing, lyrical and inspiring. To me, it seems as if our Heavenly Mother Mary, speaks through them. What a treasure!

    You Won't Be Disappointed

    Once again authors Barbara Calamari and Sandra DiPasqua have given us a written and pictorial testimony to the love that the mother of Jesus has for her children. The history of her many visits on earth are presented with clarity and love. The cultural response of the people is shown with great photographic depiction. The authors tell of the 350 official titles given to Mary. They write about the history and the reaction of the people involved with over 20 of Mary's earthly visits to humankind. I am personally proud to be one of several who were fortunate to share some of the over 40 holy cards used to show the imagery of Mary regarding several of her visits and titles. By reading the book I'm sure that you will learn more to enhance your knowledge and love for Mary and Jesus plus be visually uplifted.
