Donal Anthony Foley reviews Heralds of the Second Coming: Our Lady, the Divine Mercy, and the Popes of the Marian Era from Blessed Pius IX to Benedict XVI, by Stephen Walford
Heralds of the Second Coming seeks to investigate what we can learn from Marian apparitions, the Divine Mercy devotion, and the pronouncements of the Popes of recent times, about that most awesome of events, the return of Christ in glory at the end of the world.
The back cover text describes these revelations as having a “deeply apocalyptic undercurrent” and speaks of the “rapidly approaching final coming of Christ,” and how “our own times are ripe for the persecution of the Antichrist,” with these claims being based on a study of magisterial documents and papal teaching.
These are large claims to make, and when they are examined in detail, it cannot be said that the author has succeeded in presenting a convincing case that we are actually in the “last stage of salvation history,” although clearly we are on the margins of such events.

For Marian books which pertain to the True Devotion to Mary and Marian consecration, and specifically why we should consecrate ourselves to Mary, how to prepare for the Consecration, and how to live the Consecration:
This is the new official prayer for the foundation of a Foyer de Charité in England.
Father, your Son promised Marthe Robin that the Foyers de Charité would be the house of your heart open to all and a life-giving oasis for discouraged souls. Look down in mercy upon England, the Dowry of Mary, and through her maternal intercession and that of Marthe, grant us for the glory of your name the grace of a Foyer in this land. Call those you want for this vocation, and fulfil your Son's desire that it be a family resplendent with light, charity and love in our midst. We ask this through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
