Mary, Queen of Angels by Doreen Virtue

Mary, Queen of Angels by Doreen Virtue is a truly inspirational book about Mother Mary. Doreen Virtue is one of my favorite inspirational, spiritual authors, and this book does not disappoint to my incredibly high standard of her work.

Book Description
Mary, Queen of Angels is a nondenominational book that follows in the successful vein of two of Doreen Virtue's previous works, The Healing Miracles of Archangel Raphael and The Miracles of Archangel Michael.

Within these pages, Doreen brings forth a collection of true stories from people who have experienced dramatic healings by, and visitations from, Mary. Doreen ties these stories together by category-with comments and narrative for those who wish to deepen their own connection to Mary and the angels. 

Mary, Queen of Angels is for people of all faiths and beliefs. It is filled with prayers for various life situations, fascinating discussions about the history of Mary, and details about geographic locations where there have been sightings of her.” – Mary, Queen of Angels

My Thoughts
Mary, Queen of Angels is all about Mother Mary. The story of Mary and a basic introduction is given for her. It is however, mostly a collection of stories about Mother Mary from people all over the world that have experienced her in their lives. Stories include everything from physical and emotional healings to helping find the right job (and everything in-between). These personal experiences are uplifting and brought a calming warmth of peace as I read them. Doreen does an excellent job with commenting on them.

This book isn’t just filled with her reader’s personal experiences though. She adds in encouraging words throughout the book about Mother Mary and how she can help us. Included in the back of the book are modern versions of prayers to Mother Mary and also the traditional Catholic prayers. I especially liked the use of these prayers in the book, and found it to be an easy go-to reference for praying to Mother Mary.

I really enjoyed reading this book and learning more about Mother Mary. It is a book that I think many people, especially believers and Christians should have and/or read. I highly recommend it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Mary, Queen of Angels, Hay House, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

I have a special connection with Mother Mary because this is the one Angel or Saint (however you want to call her) and I share the same name. Growing up Catholic I always loved stories of her and continue to enjoy them to this day. This is a book that I want to read, too. Thank you for this review.
