      Editorial Reviews:
      Introduction by the Most Reverend Jacques Perrier, Bishop of Lourdes
      Celebrate the 150th anniversary of Our Lady's apparitions to Saint
      Bernadette in Lourdes with 150 true and moving stories! With an
      introduction by Most Reverend Jacques Perrier, Bishop of Lourdes, and
      Pierre-Marie Dumont, publisher of the immensely popular Magnificat
      missal, The Wonders of Lourdes tells the true story of this marvellous
      shrine from the very first apparition to the present day. This unique
      collection chronicles 150 true and moving stories that celebrate 150
      years of faith, prayer and miracles, and recounts the epic history of
      a pilgrimage site that has become a sign of conversion, faith and hope
      for millions of believers.

      Working in harmony with the bishops of France and with complete access
      to the Lourdes archives, twenty-two contributing writers relate in
      dramatic style the development of the shrine, its traditions and the
      personal journeys of many who work or have visited there. Written in
      an engaging fashion representing a variety of styles, The Wonders of
      Lourdes is an essential addition to a home library that makes a
      cherished gift to loved ones. A great preparation for the first Papal
      visit of Pope Benedict to Lourdes, planned for the autumn of 2008.

      "The Wonder of Lourdes is a work like no other – a beautiful, grand,
      engaging and wonderfully comprehensive history of the Lourdes story
      that calls us back to the virtue of hope. Magnificat has done the
      Catholic community a marvelous service with this project. It's a
      treasure."
      — Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archdiocese of Denver,
      Colorado

      "A monumental tribute of history and prose to the spiritual mother of
      all peoples who identified herself to the world from that humble
      Lourdes grotto with the sublime revelation: `I am the Immaculate
      Conception.'"
      — Dr. Mark Miravalle, Professor of Theology and Mariology, Franciscan
      University of Steubenville

      "Above all, this book proposes with simple clarity the wisdom and
      truth found in the stories of the people who are `the wonders of
      Lourdes!'"
      — Maria de Lourdes Ruiz Scaperlanda, author of The Seeker's Guide to
      Mary (Loyola, 2002)

      "Each chapter is a potent reminder that the astonishing gift of Our
      Lady at Lourdes is for everyone – from the greatest of pontiffs to the
      humblest laborer, from the most learned theologian to the simplest
      soul wrestling with life's challenges."
      — Matthew Bunson, editor, Encyclopedia of Saints (Our Sunday Visitor)

      "Like the spring at the grotto, the stories in this marvelous
      collection bubble up in an abundance of refreshing witness to the
      continuing miracle that is Lourdes."
      — Paul Thigpen, Ph.D., editor of The Catholic Answer magazine.
