Journeys with Mary – Apparitions of Our Lady by Zerlina De Santis is part of the Encounter the Saints Series published by Pauline Books. This book is a wonderful collection of nine Marian apparition stories for young children. The book states that these have all been approved by the Church. The length of each story ranges from 6-16 pages with five of them containing an accompanying full page picture. (My daughter just wishes each story had such a lovely illustration to compliment it!) The longest story is Our Lady of Fatima. That particular story even includes the Angel of Peace’s visits to the three children, so this easy to understand book does not skimp on details. My daughters and I learned some new things about apparitions we already knew and also found out about some visions we never heard of before. Some of the well-known ones include – Our Lady of Guadalupe, Lourdes, Fatima, Mount Carmel, and Miraculous Metal. The rest of the book includes – Our Lady of La Salette, Knock, Beauraing, and Banneux.
I received a copy of this book for this review from Pauline Books and Media.You can learn more about the book on their website here.
