For almost the lifespan of the Church, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been returning to the world she left almost twenty centuries ago.
Through her miraculous appearances, she has inspired and comforted millions with her prophetic messages of hope.
In its attractively redesigned and updated second edition, Those Who Saw Her brings readers the latest developments, updates, and Church statements on the apparitions of Mary the most famous apparitions of Guadalupe, Rue du Bac, La Salette, Lourdes, Pontmain, Knock, and Ftima, as well as the fascinating but less-known appearances at Akita, Japan; Kibeho, Rwanda; San Nicols, Argentina; and Betania, Venezuela.
The book also now includes a complete chapter on the 17th-century appearance of Mary to the young Benote Rencurel at Laus, France. The Laus apparitions, approved in 2008, were the first Marian apparitions approved by the Church in the 21st century.
Let Mary's prophetic messages bring comfort and hope to our life in this thorough and compelling presentation of the extraordinary visits of the Mother of God to her children around the world.
Odell's book will touch your heart....It is a book to be read and savored for its message of hope, especially in these troubling times. ---Woodeene Koenig-Bricker, author of 365 Mary: A Daily Guide to Mary's Wisdom and Comfort
