Everyone knows about the famous apparitions of Mary in Lourdes, and Fatima. But many regions of the world have their own appearances of Mary, from the German Virgin who Unties Knots, the Queen and Protestress of Nigeria, and the wheat-bearing Mary (Japan). In this remarkable book, Ann Ball, one of the most distinctive voices in popular Catholic writing today, shows us the other faces of Mary: some sublime, some unusual, and all a tribute to the enduring power of the Mother of God around the world. Each piece includes a devotion, a story, and comment from a local source. Includes photos.
