From its inception as a Christian nation over a thousand years ago, Hungary has had a fervent devotion to Mary, the Mother of God. A publication which appeared towards the end of the second millennium lists 200 Marian shrines in Hungary. There are records of Marian paintings weeping tears in Hungary as early as 1663. This book documents some of these miraculous weeping Madonnas and holy sweating. Authenticated by Church authorities and early religious tradition of Hungary, this book captures with colored illustration the mystery of Mary’s compassion with her Divine Son. Inspiring and yet informative, this book is a must addition to Catholic family libraries.
