Have you ever asked yourself what a “Crusader” actually was, or what the word “Crusade” meant?
To be a crusader means literally, “one who is marked with the cross.” At one time men took two strips of cloth and formed a cross with them upon their tunic, meaning that they had “taken the cross,” and were Crusaders. If you look up the meaning of “crusade” you'll find something saying that they were military expeditions by Christians undertaken during the Middle Ages to take back control of the Holy Land from the Moslems.
J Stephen Roberts here gives us his insight into crusading.
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 Ven. Anne Catherine Emmerich and Ven. Mary of Agreda, it also includes many episodes described in the writings of St. Bridget of Sweden and St. Elizabeth of Schenau. To read this book, 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 reads like a masterfully written 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 reader with an inspiring and truly unforgettable understanding of the otherwise unknown facts concerning Mary and the Holy Family. Imprimatur. 280 pgs, PB
