In addition to being a travel guide, Mary’s Miracles also serves as a personal retreat with Mary for readers wanting to learn about her many titles and mystical lore. Why does a statue of “Our Lady of the Plague” in St. Louis, Missouri, have a blue blemish at the corner of her mouth? How did Our Lady of the Rockies at Butte, Montana — the third tallest statue in America — get to be so tall? Why is Mary a “holy roller” in Fairbanks, Alaska? The answers are in the book!
