Is it possible…
- That there exists a Catholic mystery that holds the secret of America’s future?
- That this mystery lies behind everything from WWII, the Russian Revolution, and
- today’s emerging conflict between the United States and Russia?
- That this Catholic Prophecy is revealing itself in America?
- That God, through his Messenger the Mother Christ, is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come?
Stephen Ryan’s Vatican thriller The Madonna Files, described by New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize nominee Randall Sullivan as “A fast-paced, tightly-plotted political thriller with genuine spirituality at its core, may change the way you think of the Catholic Church forever.
The prophetic mysteries found inside The Madonna Files are true – all have been documented by renowned theologians – but the prophecies are revealed to the reader with a fast paced, riveting narrative style that the reader will find hard to put down.
The Madonna Files opens with the appearance of a priest burdened between saving the ones he loves and protecting the Catholic Church. The priest has received a cryptic note from a stranger who immediately commits suicide. The mysterious note offers clues to the location of the greatest secret in the history of the Catholic Church – the full text to Fatima’s third secret. As the frantic search for the secret takes the priest around the globe and through the streets of Washington D.C., an international crisis explodes onto the world stage hurdling Russia and the United States on a path towards all out war.
The Madonna Files is deeply rooted in Catholic prophecy that pertains to the near future and that Russia is the key – the lynchpin, the regulator, of an emerging world crisis. Inside the book the reader will discover the startling prophecy that reveals the root cause of rising tensions between Russia and the United States. The Madonna Files may just be the most prophetic novel of our times and as we near the 100 year anniversary of the Fatima apparitions the novel could not be more timely.
“The Madonna Files, by Stephen Ryan, deftly interlaces the lives of men and women across the globe into a tale of love, redemption, Marian devotion, and God’s grace. With an air of National Treasure, or Pier Paul Reads’ novel, Death of a Pope, the reader plunges into political controversy, chase scenes, a coded message, and an exposition on Marian apparitions.”
“The story follows the Catholic priest, Fr. Dan Baronowski, as he searches for the “Madonna Files,” a set of secret letters of Pope John Paul II which contain the Third Secret of Fatima. The discussion of the Blessed Virgin Mary forms the heart of this novel, and I found it interesting how the characters discuss the continuity of Mary’s appearances throughout history. I enjoyed reading about how the characters saw Mary’s constant presence in the modern world, a reality which many people can easily forget.” … “The Madonna Files is an entertaining book, which provides an interesting introduction to Marian apparitions.
In a style akin to that of Bud McFarlane’s Pierced by the Sword, this novel connects all of mankind with the reality that divine grace is at work every day…Perhaps the most interesting facet of this discussion comes by way of the story’s discussion of Medjugorje. As different characters grapple with, and reason through, the visionaries’ words from Medjugorje, the reader is given a good foundation for the arguments for the authenticity of the Medjugorje apparitions.This book could be very helpful for readers who do not know much about Medjugorje.” Catholic Fiction.net – Anne Marie Hauge

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!,
If you are a Da Vinci Code fan, YOU MUST READ THIS — Vatican intrique set in the Washington, DC area. I could see the map, streets, rivers, etc. — WHAT FUN! The complexity of the history, story development, character relationships, twists and turns are astounding. The history was so believable that I kept thinking — “wow, I didn’t know that!” The worst news is it ended. I WANT MORE IMMEDIATELY!!!
