Format: Paperback
Although I know I do not have the capacity for disciplined religious devotion, stories of religious miracles have fascinated - or more accurately, titillated - me for a long time. It was not until quite recently that I seriously began to read stories of modern-day miracles in the Catholic world, and my militantly atheistic mother and brother have become terribly critical of my thinking there is any possibility a single one could be true: they distrust any eyewitness evidence much more than John Entine ever says one should.

The story of Marthe Robin is one of the most unbelievable, remarkable or extreme - depending upon perspective - among such miracles in modern Catholic history and one that is so amazing it makes me laugh reading old editions of the Guinness Book of Records. Marthe Robin is supposed to have remained paralysed without eating or drinking anything except the Holy Eucharist, and without sleeping, for fifty-three years from the twenty-fifth of March 1928 until her death. She is supposed to have re-lived the stigmata and Passion of Jesus every Friday upon receiving Holy Communion. My mother and brother are insistent that none of what is claimed is scientifically possible, although in the excellent Holy Tears, Holy Blood: Women, Catholicism, and the Culture of Suffering in France, 1840-1970, Richard Burton does provide means of at least partially resolving this conflict.

The person who read it (cause it was a gift) loved it alot. I hope she become saint one day. We think we need to be strong, but no, Marthe Robin was weak and sick. When you are weak that is when I am powerfull say God to St-Paul. Marthe is a excellent prouf of that.

This was a fascinating book on an obscure person in France. Henri Nouwen had mentioned visiting in the area where she lived and heard about a following she had after her death. This is a modern day phenomena where God was working in this amazing woman.
