Holy Mysteries! {Book Review}

What a cool book!

Holy Mysteries! by Sophie de Mullenheim explores 12 mysteries within the Catholic Church, including miraculous healings at Lourdes, the Eucharistic miracle at Lanciano, the stigmata experienced by St Padre Pio and incorrupt Saints whose bodies have remained intact well beyond the grave.

I think my favorite mystery presented in this book is the Staircase of Loretto! Complete with facts and figures and real pictures from Sante Fe, New Mexico, the author describes what makes the staircase an impossible construction, the origin of the wood used and the questions surrounding who the mysterious carpenter was.

Each of the 12 investigations is presented with cool facts and photo evidence and such an appealing way. I know kids will LOVE this book!

My only disappointment was I had hoped that the moving Holy House of Loreto would also be presented, as I have been fascinated with the family home of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, since I read about it inĀ  Fr. Donald Calloway’s Consecration to St. Joseph. (p.180-187)
