January 22, 2014 – Dr. Vincent Ryan and Julie Dortch Cragon

Ken talks with Vincent Ryan about “The Maid of Orleans: The Life & Mysticism of Joan of Arc” by Sven Stolpe and Julie Dortch Cragon author of “Visiting Mary: Her U.S. Shrines and Their Graces.” Stolpe sees Joan of Arc as primarily a mystic, and her supreme achievement and lasting significance not so much in a mission to deliver France – though important – but in her sharing in the Passion of Christ. The Stolpe book is available at: www.ignatius.com

Julie Cragon and her family have visited many Marian shrines throughout North America. She has discovered that at each site there is a special grace connected to the particular devotion associated with each individual shrine. In this book Julie captures the experience of visiting these shrines, giving us a personal glimpse into each place. Julie’s book is available at: catalog.franciscanmedia.org Visit Julie’s website: www.juliecragon.com
