Publisher's Summary

A masterpiece that combines the visions of four great Catholic mystics into one coherent story on the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Based primarily on the famous revelations of Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich and Venerable Mary of Agreda, it also includes many episodes described in the writings of St. Bridget of Sweden and St. Elizabeth of Schonau. To listen to this audiobook, therefore, is to share in the magnificent visions granted to four of the most privileged souls in the history of the Church.

In complete harmony with the Gospel story, this book is crafted like a masterful novel. It includes such fascinating details as the birth and infancy of Mary, her espousal to St. Joseph, and her Assumption into heaven where she was crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth.

For young and old alike, The Life of Mary As Seen by the Mystics will forever impress the listener with an inspiring and truly unforgettable understanding of the otherwise unknown facts concerning Mary and the Holy Family. Imprimatur.

Let down. Goes against the Bible often

A lot of this seems to be extreme dramatic license. Mary asked newborn Jesus for permission to nurse him? Mary asked God to make her suffer the passion along with Jesus in real time? Ect. At points the visions go against the teachings of the Bible. Didn’t enjoy this book much. Felt like a let down.

Mother of God!

So little of Mary's life is known. Details of her early life and circumstances are explained in the book. It made her seem more real and approachable.
Enjoyed it very much.

The Blessed Mother Wins Souls For Jesus

This book hit me in my very core, it somehow answered questions I had but never dare ask. Listening to Colleen Hammond, was like listening to the Blessed Ever Virgin Mother herself. I am very grateful that I was led to this book. I pray all future listeners experience the same joy I have.

Dave

An incredible account of the life of Mary, we so many fruitful details given to the mystics. You feel the complete humility and equal majesty of both Jesus, and Mother Mary, along with Jesus’ deep love of his Mother, and Mother Marys deep love of Jesus and God. After listening to this, it brings to life the Rosary in a much more authentic way. Wow.

Heavenly Sojourn

Listening to this book takes one on a journey to Heaven with the Blessed Mother and makes us realise how excellent Holy Mary is and reminds us of Her great power and charity towards us today in our time of need in today’s Church. And what a sweet and heavenly voice does the female narrator have.
