Generations of devout Catholics, including many learned theologians and writers, have derived great spiritual benefits from a careful reading of the private revelations here compiled, those of Ven. Anne Catherine Emmerich and Ven. Mary of Agreda, primarily, along with those of St. Bridget of Sweden and St. Elizabeth of Schoenau. From the birth of Mary to her Coronation in Heaven, this book provides the reader with remarkable insights into the life of Our Lady, and an unmatched depth of understanding of the Holy Family. What is also shown with utmost clarity is that Mary is a model of the interior life, and an example of perfect submission to the will of God. "As we read," writes Dom Prosper Gueranger, "our heart slowly takes fire, our soul feels desires for virtue which it had not hitherto experienced, the mysteries of faith appear more luminous to us, bit by bit the world and its hopes vanish, and the longing for the good things of Heaven, which seemed to have been dozing within us, awakens with new fervor."

Saint Joseph stands close to Jesus and Mary at the heart of the gospel story. Yet he remains largely in the background, silent and steady. Not surprisingly, Christians throughout the ages have pondered deeply this mystery that is Joseph. Many have speculated about the unknown details of his life, and several mystics were granted visions that portrayed the hidden days--both the ordinary and the extraordinary--of Our Lord's appointed guardian vividly and profoundly. The Life of Saint Joseph as Seen by the Mystics weaves together into a single narrative numerous episodes from five such visionaries: Saint Bridget of Sweden; Servant of God Marina de Escobar; Venerable Mary of Ágreda; Venerable Maria Cecilia Baij; and Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. The Church insists that such private revelations cannot be viewed as another Gospel, nor even as accurate historical accounts or theological treatises. Instead, they provide a kind of sacred drama, full of spiritual insight and devotional power. In this fascinating story--which reads more like a novel than a history book--you'll journey alongside Saint Joseph as he: matures from childhood to manhood in preparation for his unique mission, responds with courage and wisdom to the startling revelations he receives in dreams, protects and cares for his Family during their journey to Bethehem and their sojourn in Egypt, labors daily to provide for his household during the "hidden years" in Nazareth, suffers heroically in his final years and dies peacefully in the arms of Jesus and Mary. This work serves as a companion to The Life of Mary as Seen by the Mystics, compiled by Raphael Brown (TAN Books, 1991). Together, the two books offer a compelling vision of the Holy Family that can deepen and transform your devotion to Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

Global warming or Climate Change is the biggest problem human civilization has ever faced. There are three main divisions in Climate change: Industrial pollution, Car pollution and Animal pollution. People are choosing to eat 70 billion animals every year which is at least 30% of the problem. One study states all the factors add up to 51% of the problem with animals for food. The obvious solution is a plant-based diet. Jesus and Mary were kosher vegetarians. The biblical, historical and scientific evidence is summarized showing that they were vegetarians. They are models to follow since major change is needed in the area of food people eat which affects climate change.
