In Awe … and more to come

Set Your DVR … now, seriously. OR better yet order yourself a copy!

Queen of Heaven: Mary’s Battle for You (both the 4-Disc Set and Hardcover Book) are so phenomenally done!  I thought I would watch one a night for a week preparing for the review. TRY ONE AFTER THE OTHER!  Once I started the series, I just could not stop.  I devoured the whole informative, magnetizing series in one binge —  kind of how I approach a box of really yummy chocolates.

I’ve been so moved that I am going to offer a 5-part blog series on Queen of Heaven beginning next Monday.   Until then here are some of the highlights:

  • A better understanding of Mary as the New Eve
  • Mary’s powerful role in our ongoing spiritual warfare
  • The Sorrows of Mary yet how she possess such JOY
  • Mother of the Church, Perfect Adorer, and Our Mother too
  • Godcidences Galore in Guadalupe **Clearly, I love alliteration
  • The miraculous events that surrounded her apparitions in Lourdes, Guadalupe, and of course, Fatima.  These ordinary, humble witnesses chosen by Mary astounded me and made NOT believing impossible for me.

Overall, this series reminded me of the ever-present intercession and assistance of Mary, Queen of Heaven (and Earth).  This world has always been and will likely continue to be, on or in the throws of evil; gratefully we are not alone.  In the Scriptures, God promises we will not be abandoned or forsaken us.  At Fatima, Mary comforts with the  promise that her Immaculate Heart, in the end, will prevail.

Perhaps my affinity for Queen of Heaven was born out of the overwhelming PEACE that overtook my heart with every story, word, and promise brought down to us from Heaven through Mary.  We are  not made for this world, we are made for Heaven.  Who better to lead us there than the Queen of that awaiting Kingdom.

Available: A (Gift Quality) Hardcover Book too…

Queen of Heaven is an approximately 4 hour documentary-style program on Mary hosted by acclaimed Catholic actor Leonardo Defilippis and filmed in multiple locations and Marian shrines including the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the World Apostolate of Fatima Shrine, and the Saint John Paul II National Shrine.

It includes contributions from 15 theological experts including Tim Staples, Fr. Dominic Legge, Dr. Carrie Gress, Dr. Paul Thigpen, Fr. Chris Alar, Fr. Jeffrey Kirby and more.   *I MAY have gone into #fangirl mode  a few times #CatholicDork

In Queen of Heaven, viewers will accompany Mary from her Immaculate Conception through her Assumption and beyond. They’ll join her as she defends Christendom at Lepanto, frees a captive people at Guadalupe and heals a broken nation at Lourdes. Listen to her at Fatima as she predicts the rise of Communism—and watch as she defeats it through her beloved Pope.

Above all, viewers will discover why, though the battle continues, victory is assured to all who turn to the Queen of Heaven.
