Description

This is a classic guide to the spiritual life that had a direct influence on several Popes, generations of priests and religious, and countless members of the laity. In clear, inspiring language, the author discusses every aspect of our journey to Christ: “the source of all light, all grace, and all holinessùthe true Life of our life.” Written for Christians in every walk of life, and filled with practical knowledge and timeless wisdom.

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.” He 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.”

“An authentic treasury of spiritual truth.”
Pope John Paul II
