The Apparitions in Damascus by Christian Ravaz (with a preface by Father Rene Laurentin) is a very interesting book in relationship to the Our Lady of Soufanich icon which is the source of holy oil in Damascus, Syria.

It is the story of Myrna, a Melkite Greek Catholic who has received apparitions from the Virgin Mary and her husband, Nicholas Nazzour, who is Eastern Orthodox.

The book is approximately 160 pages but it is a very intriguing story to read

It is online also:

Paul B, my most sincere apologies, my bad, yes, Our Lady of Soufanieh, as the day wears on my eyes tend to become blurred a bit, but, if it gets people interested in the book, all the better! grin
