The Life of Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey

I received a wonderful book for Father's Day, The Life of Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey, which finally gives us a detailed look at the person responsible for the discovery of the House of Mary at Ephesus and how she used her family inheritance to purchase and restore the house where Mary lived with St. John the Apostle. It is an interesting book not only for the obvious reason regarding the discovery of this shrine of Our Lady but also Sister Marie's life as a Daughter of Charity and how their work serving the sick and poor is closely connected to our own with the Order of Malta.

Visit the Sister Marie Foundation website for more information. On July 1st on EWTN, Fr. Groeschel will be talking about this book and the status of Sr. Marie's cause for canonization. The book is available for ordering from the website, your local religious bookseller, or my Amazon link on the right side of the blog.
