Â Â Â Â Â Christ in His Mysteries is Blessed Columba Marmionâ€™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:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â€¢Â Â How the Mysteries of Jesus are now our mysteries â€” springs of living
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â water we are meant to drink from.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â€¢Â Â How Christâ€™s wisdom, His holiness, His strength, are now our wisdom,
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â our holiness, our strength.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â€¢Â Â How to acquire special graces during each liturgical season.
Â Â Â Â Â This new edition of Christ in His Mysteries features a Foreword by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, and an Introduction by Aidan Nichols, OP.
Â Â Â Â Â It also features a vibrant new translation that captures all of Marmionâ€™s depth and spiritual power while remaining meticulously faithful to the French-language original. Aidan Nichols praises Alan Bancroftâ€™s â€œsupremely natural and fluent translation.â€
Praise for Christ in His Mysteries
â€œSplendid... Powerful... This classic of Christian spirituality can easily serve as an excellent introduction to the monumental library of Abbot Columba Marmion.â€
â€“Â Fr. Benedict Groeschel, writing in the Foreword
â€œBrilliant... Readers of Christ in His Mysteries have opened to them the theological and spiritual treasures of Catholicism at its best.â€
â€“Â Aidan Nichols, OP, writing in the Introduction
â€œWritings of deep insight and great value... I owe more to Columba Marmion for initiating me into things spiritual than to any other spiritual writer.â€
â€“Â Pope John Paul II
â€œAn outstanding master of the spiritual life.â€
â€“Â Pope Paul VI
The works of Marmion are â€œoutstanding in the accuracy of their doctrine, the clarity of their style, and the depth and richness of their thought.â€
â€“Â Pope Pius XII
â€œHe revealed the soul of the liturgy to us, by which I mean all those elements of doctrine and of life which it holds in reserve within the visible envelope of its rites and symbols: he is the theologian of the liturgy.â€
â€“Â Dom Lambert Beauduin
â€œThe best and most important of Marmionâ€™s books... A treasure... This book, in my opinion, ranks on the same level as the writings of St. Teresa of Avila and St. Francis de Sales.â€
â€“Â Fr. Kenneth Baker, Editor, Homiletic & Pastoral Review
â€œChrist in His Mysteries is spiritual reading at its best... Marmion demonstrates a profound knowledge not only of the sacred texts themselves but also of liturgical and patristic sources... One hopes that a new generation of readers will be helped by his work to discover the unfolding of the mystery of Christ.â€
