A woman clothed with the sun : eight great appearances of Our Lady in modern times by John J Delaney( Book )

24 editions published between 1959 and 2001 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the centuries, Our Blessed Lady has appeared frequently on Earth with messages of warning, hope, and consolation. A "Woman Clothed with the Sun" considers the eight most significant apparitions of Mary: that of the Miraculous Medal at Paris, those at La Salette, Lourdes, Knock, Fatima, Beauraing, Banneux -- and also the sixteenth-century appearance of Mary at Guadalupe, with its profound message for Americans. The historical background of each apparition is given, the vision itself described, and Mary's messages are quoted by writers distinguished for their special knowledge of the apparitions and their literary excellence. In his introductory chapter, editor John J. Delaney traces the relationships among the apparitions and provides a penetrating analysis of their significance

5 editions published between 1977 and 1996 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic work--the original guide to "practicing the presence of God"--Has inspired millions of people in a variety of editions since it was first published after the author's death in 1691. Brother Lawrence was a humble monk who spent much of his monastic life working in the kitchen. His life and writings reveal the secrets of daily, moment-by-moment fellowship with God. "In the way of God, thoughts count very little," he says. Full of realistic honesty, friendliness, and simplicity, 'The Practice of the Presence of God' shows that it's possible to meet God among the pots and pans--in the ordinary, daily events of life"--Cover, p.4
