Of Men and Mary is superb. The six life testimonies
contained within it are miraculous, heroic, and truly inspiring.
They illustrate the reality of divine grace of Jesus through Mary
and the triumph of the human will for good over evil, light over
darkness. Of Men and Mary is an injection of hope in a historical
time when it is so essential to spiritually thrive. Fr.
Gary Thomas, Pastor, exorcist, and subject of the book and
movie, "The Rite."
Of Men and Mary presents the awe-inspiring stories of six men whose lives were changed--and manhood healed--when they entrusted their lives to Mary, the ship of treasures. This book is anointed!Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, Author of No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy and
Marian Gems: Daily Wisdom on Our Lady
I was deeply moved by this beautiful book. There is an anointing upon it: the Spirit of God radiates through its words. . . It is the kind of book you will want to give out to people, especially those in need of hope. I plan to share this tremendous work with many through the years. Br. Daniel Maria Klimek, T.O.R., Assistant Professor, Theology Department, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio
This book is a treasure. It perfectly relays Our Lady's messages in Medjugorje without preaching. May all those who read it be blessed and changed by the testimonies within its covers. Sr. Emmanuel Maillard, Author of nine books, includingScandalous Mercy: When God Goes Beyond Boundaries
This life-changing book made me laugh and cry from the start. . . Reading it reminded me of the miracles I experienced in Medjugorje and the active role Mary has played in my life. This memorable book has given me a spiritual "shot in the arm" and a resurgence of love for Our Lady, Queen of Peace, and the messages of Medjugorje. A must-read for all!
