Apparition Shrines: Places of Pilgrimage and Prayer
Have you ever wished you could walk in the candlelight procession at Lourdes, or see the place where the Virgin Mary appeared to three children at Fatima? In Apparition Shrines, Dr. Robin Ruggles takes you to fourteen celebrated shrines. In these sacred places, Jesus or his Blessed Mother appeared to "God's little ones" giving important messages to us all. Ruggles sets the apparition stories in their historical context, and recounts the subsequent history of the visionaries. He describes the shrines as well as points of interest in the surrounding areas, providing helpful information for those planning a pilgrimage.
