New Mediterraneans Discoveries Which Change The Landscape In The Interior Life, Under The Guidance Of St Josemaría - Lucas Buch

New Mediterraneans: Discoveries Which Change The Landscape In The Interior Life, Under The Guidance Of St Josemaría
Lucas Buch
Opus Dei

 


This book is currently being offered for free, on the Opus Dei site. It is one of several books being offered for spiritual growth for free. Last year I read a few of the others being offered and they have all been excellent. And to be honest you cannot beat the price. These are great resources, and this is a wonderful little book. The description of the book is:

“The lives of the saints act as a light that illuminates the path of our lives when night falls. They have travelled the same path as us, and have known how to reach the goal: the Love of God which is in our origin, and which desires to embrace us for all eternity.

In these pages we are going to look at the holy life of St Josemaría Escrivá; in particular, at some of the discoveries he made during his years as a young priest. As many people who knew him pointed out, he was a lover of God who taught many souls “to understand more profoundly the love of God, so that we are able to show that love to other people through what we do and say” (Christ is Passing By, 97). This is the path of the Christian life, which we too wish to undertake.”


And the contents are:

Foreword
I. "That First Prayer of a Child of God"
Interlude: “Having the Cross means being identified with Christ”
II. "Jesus is my dear Friend"
III. "From the Wound of the right hand"
IV. "Don't speak: listen to him"
V. "To Jesus, Through Mary"
Epilogue

The book draws heavily from the writings of Saint Josemaria Escriva, books about Escriva, the popes, and other church documents. Each chapter has between 16-38 quotes. This is an excellent little book so pick it up and give it a read.

Note: This book is part of a series of reviews: 2019 Catholic Reading Plan!
