From Library Journal
The rise of the scientific method and of death-of-God theology has done nothing to dim the luster of the mother of Jesus Christ; if anything, reported apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary have increased in frequency and urgency since 1900. Chiffolo, author of books on Padre Pio and other Catholic subjects, has created a highly devout and useful guide to 100 of her "names": not limited to the Rosa Mystica or Our Lady of Guadalupe, it includes Our Lady of Akita and Our Lady of Zhyrovytsi. Astonishing in their variety, these stories and prayers should intrigue the Catholic and non-Catholic reader alike. Highly recommended.
