James Valois moderates today's Catholic Book Club on Morning Light, talking about his new book “Our Lady's Prophecies: God's Messages for Our Time” available now (as of Feb. 20th) James has a B.A in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville where he became a revert to the Catholic faith from Evangelicalism while a student there.

This is a true story about Venerable Mother Mariana de Jesus, a Conceptionist nun, who received apparitions from our Lady of Good Success of the Purification and was given many prophecies specifically for our times; these apparitions have been approved by the local bishop in 1611 and upheld by every bishop since that time.

In 1582, Mother Mariana received an apparition of Jesus crucified, the Blessed Virgin, and St. Mary Magdalene, all life size - the vision of the three swords because three swords appeared with the words--heresy, blasphemy and impurity on each of them.

But, it's because these things are important - 2,000+ years of teaching and tradition should mean something to us today.
