Reading Recommendations

I was wondering if anyone here knows any good books or reading material on or about Mary. Novels, Bio, anything. I feel distant, lol. It would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Hi Bwtby :wave:

I’m not sure if you’re interested in books describing Mary’s earthly life, or something dealing with apparitions/miracles etc.

If the latter, I VERY much enjoyed this little book:

THE POWER OF THE ROSARY by Rev. Albert J.M.Shamon

I am currently reading this one (haven’t finished it yet, but I have enjoyed it so far):

Our Lady of Kibeho: Mary Speaks to the World from the Heart of Africa

If you’d like to read a page-turning account of Mary’s intercession in turning around the life of a young man who was on a very bad path indeed:

No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy

I was going to recommend Our Lady of Kibeho…but I see someone already beat me to it.

Great book. I bought a copy for my priest.

I like “The Mystical City of God”, by Venerable Mary of Agreda and “Hail Holy Queen”, by Scott Hahn.

The World’s First Love, by Bishop Sheen.

Thank you guys so much! I truly appreciate it! :slight_smile:

True Devotion to Mary by St Louis de Montfort.
The Glories of Mary by St Alphonsus Liguori.

Hail Holy Queen by Scott Hahn
True Devotion to Mary by St Louis de Montfort
The Secret of the Rosary by St Louis de Montfort


Yes, I forgot to mention Hail Holy Queen :doh2: Great book! :thumbsup:
