I found this to be an excellent work on the Christian Life and highly recommend it. Christ, The Life Of The Soul Is A Modern Spiritual Classic Drawing Upon The Scriptures, The Liturgy, And The Doctors Of The Church, Blessed Columba Marmion Shows Us The Path Towards Freedom From Self Bondage And The Enlargement Of Our Souls To Realize, With St Paul, That I Live, Yet Not I, But Christ Liveth In Me As Blessed Marmion Puts It, Christ Is The Alpha And Omega Of All Sanctity The Author Shows How To Die To Sin And Live For God, And The Primary Sources Of Our Spiritual Nourishment In The Eucharist And Prayer, Until The Consummation Of Our Adoption In Christ Jesus In The Mystical Body Of Christ Perhaps Pope Benedict XV Said It Best Read This It Is The Pure Doctrine Of The Church And Singularly Conducive To Excite And Maintain The Flame Of Divine Love In The Soul He Bequeathed To Us An Authentic Treasury Of Spiritual Teaching For The Church Of Our Time In His Writings He Teaches A Way Of Holiness, Simple And Yet Demanding, For All The Faithful Pope John Paul II The Works Of Marmion Are Outstanding In The Accuracy Of Their Doctrine, The Clarity Of Their Style, And The Depth And Richness Of Their Thought Pope Pius XII Abbot Marmion Carries Us Back To A Wider And Wholesome Tradition, And Many Will Rise Up To Bless Him, As They Find In His Teaching New Strength, And Fresh Vigor In Their Striving After God Francis Cardinal BourneBorn In Ireland In , Blessed Columba Marmion Became Abbot Of Maredsous Abbey, Belgium, And One Of The Great Spiritual Masters Of The Th Century His Conferences And Books Have Influenced Popes, Cardinals, Priests, Monks, And Laity Alike Highly recommended for those who want to learn about various aspects of the Christian life, in light of our role as adopted children of God.As you read this book and learn from it, let this be your prayer May we merit to be coheirs to eternal life, and may praise and glorify you, O God, through your Son, Jesus Christ cf Eucharistic Prayer II, Roman Missal. If I got converted to Christianity, and I indeed I have been, I would have loved to be given a book like that right after my conversion Why It focuses on our adoption as sons and daughters of God It teaches proper sense of God s holiness and how we can live in a healthy way This is one of the books I can read over and over again and never get tried of, reach out for it from my bookshelf and pray as I read, which is what I have already been doingThis kind of books sets me in a certain mode that I love and miss badly being intimately united with Christ, other christs. A very intimate, and thought provoking insight into the love of Christ through the seven sacraments.
