Testimonials for Bleeding Hands, Weeping Stone

Bleeding Hands, Weeping Stone is a fun read, as Ficocelli canvasses Christian history for weird, surprising, and hard-to-believe supernatural events, including bilocation, luminosity, levitation, the odor of sanctity, incorruption and apparitions.

Elizabeth never ceases to amaze me! This is another great book that opened my eyes to so many miraculous happenings. It is inspiring and gives me hope to know that miracles are alive and well in the 21st century. My kids, ages twelve and fourteen are now enjoying this book, and I intend to use it next year in my religious education classes for 9th graders!!

I was looking for a book about signs and wonders in the Catholic Church, for my own enlightenment and also to recommend to friends. Some people are convinced by books on apologetics, and others by personal conversion stories, but some people respond best to miracles. This book fits the bill, was obviously written with this purpose in mind, and is a real eye opener. It’s also very readable and entertaining.

I’m fourteen years old, and even if this would seem to be an adult book I was thoroughly captivated. Even though some of the parts mentioned in this book I had already known, it was altogether a good Catholic reading book. Full of miracles, levitation, stigmata, visions, and so many others. We should have many more books like these explaining things in intricate details, outlining the many miracles God bestowed on this lovely earth.

Bleeding Hands, Weeping Stone is an engaging book about a topic that interest teenagers.  Many young people today are enthralled with the supernatural and are amazed to find out that our Catholic history is replete with stories better and truer than anything to which the secular media exposes them.  This book is an easy read and the stories are presented in short segments.  I found this book a great help in catching the interest of my seventh and eighth grade students.

This is a wonderful book about the mysteries of our Catholic faith. Some of the mysteries I know, many I did not. My teenage son and husband are going to read it next. It was very inspiring and I will recommend it to all my family and friends.

This book is very inspiring and a worthy teaching tool about the Catholic faith. This is a very entertaining book because Ficocelli mixes facts with humor which livens up the story very much. This book is meant to help Catholics and non-Catholics to grow in their faith. It is highly recommended to those interested in miracles and their relationship with the Catholic Church.
