Transfigured is truly a touch of God that will leave a mark on your soul, a powerful testimony of the love of God which inspires great faith and shows the nearness of heaven to us all. Through this testimony and story, I believe many will be renewed in faith and fall more in love of God, as I did, creating a bright light shining in hearts across the globe.
Sadly, truth is painfully difficult to find when we look to today's world for answers, especially when it comes to navigating broken relationships and dating. The wonderful thing about this book - there's truth on every page for the reader to digest!
Patricia's story will leave you in awe of the power and beauty of a child-like faith in God and trust in Divine Mercy, despite our brokenness. I'm thankful the Church continues to give us the gift of dramatic conversion stories and examples of great saints in the making!
I read this captivating book overnight. Transfigured inspired me to reflect on God's purpose for my own life and how God's call has manifested itself personally to me. It also helped me realize that what we may consider life's failures may actually be great graces, and that God can win us in our failures.
Patricia's story reminds us that God loves each of us immensely no matter how far we've fallen. This is a story of redemption and how God can bring healing to anyone and that when we turn to Him he will turn our tragedies into His victory. Patricia now helps thousands of people around the world by sharing her story of healing and how God has transformed her mind, body and soul.
