Each year, the Church celebrates the Mysteries of Christâ€™s birth, life, death, and Resurrection. These are the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, and Easter â€” and each is the source of a particular grace, each has its own special gift for us.
Christ in His Mysteries is Blessed Columba Marmion’s great meditation on the treasure-house of grace Christ offers to us in the Churchâ€™s liturgical year. Writing in the lively, compelling style that made him a favorite of Popes and lay faithful alike, Marmion explains:
- How the Mysteries of Jesus are now our mysteries â€” springs of living water we are meant to drink from.
- How Christ’s wisdom, His holiness, His strength, are now our wisdom, our holiness, our strength.
- How to acquire special graces during each liturgical season.
This new edition of Christ in His Mysteries features a Foreword by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, and an Introduction by Aidan Nichols, OP.
It also features a vibrant new translation that captures all of Marmion’s depth and spiritual power while remaining meticulously faithful to the French-language original. Aidan Nichols praises Alan Bancroft’s â€œsupremely natural and fluent translation.â€
