|Mary : Light from the East - Miracles of
Our Lady of Soufanieh
Book Cover by Professional artist, Mark Sanislo Author Robert J. Fox
Finally there is an ample book written by a Catholic priest who did first-hand research in the Community of Soufanieh, Damascus, Syria near the site where the Apostle St. Paul was converted and baptized.
Father Elias Zahlaoui, associated with the Soufanieh miracles and messages from the beginning, sees this as one of the most complete books on Soufanieh, sensitive to all the peoples and Christians of the East. “Light from the East” - is a 256 page book with multiple colored photos throughout the chapters to illustrate what is happening at Soufanieh - in the Christian sector of Damascus - and extending itself throughout the world.
It is a “Rosary of marvels” which include exsudations of oil, apparitions, ecstasies, messages, visions, stigmata, bodily and spiritual cures.
This book is a “new voice” that presents the deeper message of Soufanieh for the universal Church which is called to unity, especially the call for Orthodox and Catholics to become one as they were for the first 1000 years of Christianity. The Author explores not only unity for all Christians but love and unity for each family. Soufanieh is a call for Christian Unity and for love and unity in millions of families which will lead to Christian Unity.
Father Fox went to Damascus and grasped the reality that Soufanieh is to the East what Fatima is to the West. Those of the Soufanieh Community reviewed this book before going to print and were amazed and thrilled that finallly the truth and love for unity between East and West as called for by heaven will be made known to millions more by a priest from the West who accepted those of the East with love. Finally a sensitivity to the East is shown in presenting the Mother of the East as the Mother of us all who wants her children one in her Son Jesus Christ. 256 pages.
