The Book of Miracles is a firsthand, inspiring account of the daily miracles of healing that have taken place at the Casa de Dom Inacio in the interior of Brazil. One of the world’s most famous healers, Joao de Dues (John of God), cares for hundreds and sometimes thousands of people daily, usually at eh Casa and occasionally in other parts of Brazil. Over the past four decades he has treated millions of people! Numerous cures of cancer, AIDS, blindness, asthma, drug addiction and other physical problems as well as psychological and spiritual illnesses have occurred through his work. Joao does not take credit for these miracles. With true humility, he says he has never healed anyone, but that it is God who heals. If this is the case, Joao is a singularly powerful medium of God’s work and love and an invaluable resource for those seeking healing of body, mind or spirit. The luminous and breathtaking stories within this book will stretch the beliefs of some readers, affirm and deepen the faith of others. All will receive empowering information for their own personal healing. Author Josie RavenWing has one again succeeded in combining the practical and the mystical in this, her third and most exciting book yet!

Heartwarming and Heart-Opening Stories Gathered from Decades of Medical Practice Bernie Siegel first wrote about miracles when he was a practicing surgeon and founded Exceptional Cancer Patients, a groundbreaking synthesis of group, individual, dream, and art therapy that provided patients with a “carefrontation.” Compiled during his more than thirty years of practice, speaking, and teaching, the stories in these pages are riveting, warm, and belief expanding. Their subjects include a girl whose baby brother helped her overcome anorexia, a woman whose cancer helped her heal by teaching her to stand up for herself, and a family that was saved from a burning house by bats. Without diminishing the reality of pain and hardship, the stories show real people turning crisis into blessing by responding to adversity in ways that empower and heal. They demonstrate what we are capable of and show us that we can achieve miracles as we confront life’s difficulties.

The Book of Sainte Foy

The miracle stories surrounding Sainte Foy form one of the most complete sets of material relating to a medieval saint's cult and its practices. Pamela Sheingorn's superb translation from the Medieval Latin texts now makes this literature available in English. The Book of Sainte Foy recounts the virgin saint's martyrdom in the third century (Passio), the theft of her relics in the late ninth century by the monks of the monastery at Conques (Translatio), and her diverse miracles (Liber miraculorum); also included is a rendering of the Provençal Chanson de Sainte Foy, translated by Robert L. A. Clark. The miracles distinguish Sainte Foy as an unusual and highly individualistic child saint displaying a fondness for gold and pretty things, as well as a penchant for playing practical jokes on her worshippers. In his record of Sainte Foy, Bernard of Angers, the eleventh-century author of the first parts of the Liber miraculorum, emphasized the saint's "unheard of" miracles, such as replacing missing body parts and bringing dead animals back to life. The introduction to the volume situates Sainte Foy in the history in the history of hagiography and places the saint and her monastery in the social context of the high Middle Ages. Sheingorn also evokes the rugged landscape of south central France, the picturesque village of Conques on the pilgrimage road, and, most important, the golden, jewel-encrusted reliquary statue that medieval believers saw as the embodiment of Sainte Foy's miracle-working power. In no other book will readers enjoy such a comprehensive portrait of Sainte Foy and the culture that nurtured her.
